Goldfish - noun - The target of online deception or mischief-making in the world of online dating. An unwitting participant in bizarre flirtation with no solicitation of love. An innocent who’s not always innocent.
Catfishing is so last year. I've spent years perfecting the art of goldfishing by pretending to be a woman on some of the web’s most popular dating sites. The Goldfish Project takes all of that fun creepiness of catfishing and removes the awkward “people’s emotions getting involved” stuff to create a live reading of actual conversations, e-mails, texts and more from his time undercover.
We're doing a remount of the original Goldfish Project as a FREE show, one night only, Saturday August 6th at 8pm at Trap Door Theatre in Chicago. Snag some tickets for yourself right now!
What's my deal?
That's a good question. I create projects, experiments and mischief to amuse myself. Sometimes that involves pretending to be other people. Sometimes that involves pretending to be myself. It's generally mostly all attempting to be comedy, but I guess that's your call on whether or not I've succeeded.
What else is going on?
Off and on for the last two years, myself and my friend Alex Nichols have been secretly soliciting writers to each write a single page of a brand new screenplay for a sequel that may never exist: Austin Powers 4. Sixty writers later, we're doing a live reading of the disastrous results and you can check it out FOR FREE on Friday August 12th at 8 pm at Trap Door Theatre (1655 W Cortland St).
Want tickets? E-mail secretsequel @ gmail dot com with your name and how many tickets you want set aside, and we'll send you all the info you need.
