Hey--Non Birding Bill and I are performing! We wrote a show several years ago called Play on Birds. It's a bunch of sketches that lovingly pokes fun at birds, bird watching and bird feeding. We've performed it for the Minnesota Fringe Festival and even at a few bird festivals around the country. Some of the sketches include:
What Birders Think They Look Like
What Birders Actually Look Like
Bird and Chain (Birding With Your Non Birding Spouse)
Birds With Dirty Names
And we've added some new stuff! Even Non Birders seem to enjoy this. One of my all time favorite quotes about the show was from audience member Dale who said, "I only came to this because you two are my friends. I thought it was going to be a load of crap, but I laughed my ass off!"
I'm gonna channel some of my frustration with the gulf spill and 10% of our profits will be donated to International Bird Rescue and Research Center and also make it the Birds and Beers for this month.
We're only performing it twice at the Bryant Lake Bowl--you can order dinner and have a drink during the show! I highly recommend the mock duck rolls. If you haven't been to the Bryant Lake Bowl before, it's awesome--a theater, bar, restaurant and bowling ally all in one. You can have a drink, watch a show, eat some food and then bowl a game!

Come and laugh with fellow birders (and maybe a few non birders) and help raise money for the IBRRC.
