RenFest Idea #1

I woke up in the middle of the night once this week with an idea in my head. After my brain had made a couple of logical jumps, I ended up with an idea for a bit I could perform at the Renaissance Festival. A comedy act I'd call "Dave the Cabin Boy's Pirate Instruction Course". "How to be a Proper Pirate in Six Arr's or Less."

I've got several pieces of material already assembled (and will take suggetions!) and even have t-shirt ideas. One of them would have a sketch of a pirate incorporating "Dave the Cabin Boy" in script around him ... and then on the back in large block lettering it would say "NOT ROGER".

Good enough to sell a few, and humor level appropriate for the audience, I think. Heck, if I can put the material together in the off-season I could audition next year. Hence ... why I need to write this stuff down. I'll probably lock the rest of the material, but this is as good a place as any for keeping my notes.

Ah ... I missed that at first glance. Not as up on my Tori Amos as I used to be. My friend Hobbes would be disappointed in me.

Re: Dude...
I think I remember that we had an idea somewhat like it. This image just particularly burned itself into my brain (as in a lucid dream of seeing myself on stage at the RenFest doing the shtick). I was on the "Jury Rig Stage" where Hack & Slash were this year. Decent crowd, getting into it.

Time for showmanship practice, et cetera.
