Hey there!

I’m writing this from London, which is a nice city when it’s sunny, as long as you don’t have to ride the Tube. I have a Guardian Masterclass starting now, and then back to Amsterdam this evening.

Also of note: it's the Quarterfinals of the World Cup, deep in the throes of the heartbreaking glory of the Beautiful Game. If you don’t care about football or the World Cup, I can tell you I understand, but strongly question your life choices.

Luckily for you, there’s still time to enjoy the thrills of 8 teams becoming 4 teams, and then 2 teams, and then one final champion.

But first: an email! I’ve got some holiday wrap-up, some theatrical and gig updates and then you can head off to enjoy the rest of your morning. Or evening. Or mid-afternoon. (I don’t know when you read these emails).


For most of May and June, Chiara, Arya and I wandered through the west coast of California, Oregon, and BC. It was an action-packed adventure that defies easy summary. But I'll say I did: co-facilitate a two-day corporate retreat in Bend Oregon, go camping in Yosemite, lay down some freestyle raps in my niece's elementary school class, and see lots of wonderful friends and family.

So it was a type of perfect, basically.

But the biggest revelation was that Arya was relatively well-behaved on the 10+-hour flight there and back (about an 8.5 out of 10).

I hear that a flight with kids is different every time, like a fortune cookie. But getting one success out of the way early was very encouraging. She was also good on the train, in the car, on the other flights and on the bus.

We've got another adventure planned for the Irish coast at the end of the month, so it'll be another chance to test out her portability.


I hear some nice feedback from people that they enjoy these emails. Which is great, because I enjoy writing them. If you don't enjoy receiving them, you can unsubscribe. Also, I don't sell or share the email addresses I have in my database. I wouldn't know how to share them even if I did want them. But I never ever will. (I do feel like the GDPR stuff doesn't apply to me, but just in case it does.


A couple of weeks ago I did a short interactive improvised film noir detective show. It was part of an evening of interactive theater at Mezrab, and it was a blast.

It was a tryout for a solo comedy piece that's been in my mind for a while. It was the perfect mix of absurdity, hilarity shot through with a mild film noir sensibility. Here's a bit more about that, best read with some smoky jazz in the background.


I went to Soho house and gave a talk on improvisation. More on that and improv superpowers in general here.


I've received a couple really nice Amazon reviews for my book, but I'm still looking for more five-star reviews ;) This will be my final pitch for reviews for this book, so think of it like your last chance. Go on and leave a review!
