Hooray! Rick Dalby is our newest Intern of the Week! Rick is one of the hardest working humans I have ever met. He is dedicated, dependable, genuine, and gosh -- just an all-around solid dude! Don't be fooled by Rick's mysterious aura. He may seem like a man of few words, but underneath that demure smile is a prudent, opinionated (and funny!) fellow.
Welcome to the Inner Orbit Interview Series, where I bother LGBT+ and female-identifying performers at Dallas Comedy House about their lives and experiences as comedians. This week’s subject is DCH’s own hilarious health enthusiast, Brian Harrington.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
Harry and Hermoine wait as Sirius is tormented by Dementors. Harry is certain his (deceased) dad will show up any minute; after all, it was his dad’s Patronus in the form of the stag that had saved Sirius the first time they walked this timeline. Hermoine’s time-turner had brought them back along this timeline a second time, and now they waited in the woods, watching. But Hermoine’s concern nudges Harry’s faith, He’s dying, Harry. No one’s coming.
Everybody meet Josh Edwards! He's our latest Intern of the Week! Josh is one of those people who is always happy and smiling. He carries a positive energy with him everywhere he goes. Every time I see Josh, I think, "Hmm... is he growing a mustache?" Josh likes to live life on the edge. He is currently taking TWO classes at the same time! (Crazy!) If you see him interning, introduce yourself! He has plenty of smiles and anecdotes to share, and he's great at making new friends. Learn more about Josh by reading this excerpt from his personal diary, which I secretly photocopied before putting the diary back under his pillow.
Let’s take a walk.
Improv level two, an exploration of character development, invites us on an exercise to inhabit our bodies, to walk around the room in a neutral posture. Walk how you normally would. We begin, our various saunters and traipsing steadily moving forward and around in our unique way.
Before I dive in and baptize us all in Oprah’s collard green juice, I feel it is important that you the reader, trust me. It is not my aim to point my finger and accuse non-people of color of being the enemy. Nor do I desire to hurt feelings or make others feel uncomfortable. Oh, and I am in no way THE spokesperson for minorities (I feel that I have to give that disclaimer or else I’ll be dragged to the depths of the sunken place). I’m just trying to start a conversation, you know, the way you do when you’re finally able to sit at the grown folks table at thanksgiving.
