Now it is pleasant to hunt something you want very much over a long period of time, being outwitted, outmaneuvered, and failing at the end of each day, but having the hunt and knowing every time you are out there, sooner or later, your luck will change and that you will get the chance that you are seeking. But it is not pleasant to have a time limit by which you must get your kudu or perhaps never get it, nor even see one. It is not the way hunting should be. It is too much like those boys who used to be sent to Paris with two years in which to make good as writers or painters after which, if they had not made good, they could go home and into their father’s business. The way to hunt is for as long as you live against as long as there is you and colors and canvas, and to write as long as you can live and there is pencil and paper or ink or any machine to do it with, or anything you care to write about, and you feel a fool, and you are a fool, to do it any other way.
– from Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemmingway

I just finished a house sitting job where I was taking care of these two wonderful dogs (Pictured above) and a misunderstood cat. The owner, Tad, is a comic book junkie and loves all kinds of cool art and graphic novels. So I made him a comic with his dogs as new Adventure Time characters. This was done in about two hours today when I couldn’t figure out how to operate the flat screen. Sorry for the poor quality but I hope you like it.

I directed this video for my friend Carol. These are real life experiences for Marc, Baz and Carol (with a funny take). They were brave enough to show the world how body dysmorphia effects them everyday. We hope some people can relate to this and laugh with them (not at them). Please share the video if it speaks to you.

The Wolf of Clark Street

It’s going to be a warm January. Jack & The Wolf host The Bucket Show on Tuesdays in 2014 at your friendly neighborhood Uncommon Ground (Clark St. location). We are tossing all kinds of acts into the bucket including big music acts. Storytellers and improvisers will be inspired by the song they hear to create a totally original piece. It should be suuuuuper artsy. Check out our line up at www.jackandthewolf.com. The show is FREEEEEE!

Build a New Home for The Annoyance Theatre

The Annoyance Theatre has been a second home for me in the past two years. They foster talent and encourage risk taking. They know sometimes you will fail and they are okay with that. It is a safe training ground. I got to be in the last show at the previous space on Broadway and then the theatre shut down in September. It has been dark since then, but they continue to teach classes in the old studio spaces. They are making this really sweet looking space (see floor plan) and they need some extra bux to get them there. The comedy/improv community has really stepped up in their support because they know how important this place is to Chicago and creating comedy. Will you join them and support The Annoyance? Donate a dollar or whatever…go to the funny kickstarter for more info…
