On Thursday, September 13th at Baltimore's Metro Gallery, I'll be featured on the Ed Schrader Show. I'm really excited about the opportunity to perform some of my new spoken word material, in front of a live, televised audience. What should I perform?

I auditioned with the latest version of my perpetually-in-progress piece entitled "The Outside Talker". With such short notice, I'm not sure I can come up with the entire garb I'd need to really pull it off. "The Outside Talker" is an imitation of a carnival barker, or sideshow announcer. I'd need a top hat, at the very least. I might decide to perform something else, instead.

I'll need to practice, maybe memorize (yeah, right). Whatever happens, you'll just have to see the show for yourself. If you're not in the neighborhood, don't worry, the whole show is usually syndicated online via YouTube, etc..

Since it's a late show, there are sure to be plenty of gags and jokes, and perhaps some room for the kind of quick promotional suggestions that guests usually make on that type of show (I've got two, as it happens).

Again, I'm still not totally set on what to perform. Any requests?
