My New Year’s Wishes?

 It was standing room only at Mad Art Gallery for the 6th Annual Christmas Jam in St. Louis. I was so happy to see Improv Trick alumni return for the fun. From Chicago, Tricksters Mark Hardy, Ryan Dalton and Simon Ahmed dropped in. From New York Tim Keough, and from LA BJ “Honkey” Lange led games late into the night at our afterparty.

We had so much fun helping to raise funds, awareness and two whole bins of canned goods for St. Louis’ needy. Thanks to everyone who was a part of this huge success. When we asked current and former Tricksters to join us for the annual holiday photo the stage was full. So full you can barely see me in the picture below! I’m the one with the mic! How great to be surrounded by the very best St. Louis improvisers, the kind who think of others first.

My New Year‘s Wishes are that your year is as full as fun, laughter and love as mine has been. I know I promised to blog more this year, but it’s been a doozy. But I promise there will be more coming soon. A regular reader of this blog passed along a fun link for fans of SNL.
