Similarly, acting is something that I do for fun in my downtime. I'm currently taking to the stage for the first time in two years for Zero Hour Theatre, a community troupe that I had a hand in founding back in 2007 with some of my college friends. For the third straight year, we're taking part in the annual Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, D.C. The festival is a showcase of sorts for independent artists, and this July over 150 different shows are out there for the viewing. Our play is "7 Lessons on Suicide", a world premiere by our good friend (and award-winning playwright!) Steve Spotswood. Last night was our first of seven performances over the next week-plus, and things went pretty smoothly. At 4:30 today it's show #2, and if any of you are in the Baltimore or D.C. area and you're in the mood for some dark comedy (not to mention the sight of yours truly playing a short-tempered postal worker), we'd love to have you in the audience. All of the pertinent details are on our website, but I will tell you that tickets are $15 plus a one-time purchase of a $5 button that is good for discounts at local businesses and restaurants. The venue is the Goethe Institut, which is right down the street from the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro station (on the red/green/yellow lines). Be there, or I just might be tempted to post more TGIF videos!

Brady Anderson, 1998 Pinnacle Inside #82
Brady Anderson has always been a California kind of guy, and it's not surprising that he tried his hand at acting with a guest appearance in 1997 on the goofy tween/teen sitcom version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. As you can see if you click that link, #9 was wise not to give up his day job.
