The traveling PoopReport.com. Plus: video from the release party!
My recent lectures in Iowa and Baltimore, and the success of the book release party last weekend here in Brooklyn, have proven to me that people want to appreciate intellectual poop humor in forums other than the web. The country just might be ready for a traveling poop show.
First stop: Philadelphia.
It's called The Tao of Poo: A Night of Poop Humor and Poop Culture. On June 2 at Philadelphia's Fleisher Art Memorial, I'll be joining four comedians for an evening of history, culture, and cringe-inducing bathroom stories. Each comedian will tell their tale of woe -- be it the unfortunate confluence of rush-hour traffic and IBS, or a sadistic gastroenterologist's solution to constipation -- after which I'll provide insight and understanding into the ideological history of the toilet or the origin of Shameful Shitting. It's yin and yang -- equal parts hilarious poop stories and fascinating poop culture.
You can find a lot more info and reserve tickets at The Tao of Poo. Tell everyone you know in the Philly area -- if this is a success, then there's a really good chance it'll be hitting other cities soon.
In other news, last week's Poop Culture last week was great. (Here are one blogger's thoughts.) It featured comedians Bobby Tisdale, Gabe & Jenny, and Gregg Gethard, as well as musicians Stuckey and Murray -- a fun and fascinating evening dedicated to poop and Poop Culture.
A friend of mine is working on a video compilation featuring the highlights of the evening. In the meantime, here's me up on my soapbox for your viewing enjoyment.
Tell your friends in Philly about The Tao of Poo! If it works well, I might be in your city next.
