Everything Is Festival is upon us. The annual display of madness brought to you by the video collective Everything Is Terrible and the amazing movie theater people at Cinefamily has returned, and Los Angeles will never be the same. This week I'll be giving away tickets to a bunch of EIF shows, so keep an eye on the site if you live in Los Angeles and like having fun.
This giveaway is for the annual Talent Show, a rollicking bit of insanity that never fails to entertain. It happens tomorrow (Thursday) night at 10 at the Cinefamily. Here's the official write-up:
Music! Performance! Spectacle! If EIF! is all about chaos (which it totally is), then this show in particular sums up what it’s really all about. A tradition steeped in history, from middle school auditoriums to family resorts in the Poconos, the Great American Talent Show is getting turned on its square-ass head for the EIF Talent Show 2013, featuring a downright DELIGHTFUL array of acts. Highlighting this unforgettable evening of weirdness and awesome fun is a live set by Ben O’Brien and Alan Resnick of the East Coast comedy collective Wham City — and headlining this cacophony is the Food Party duo of Thu Tran and Matt Fitzpatrick, who’ll please your earballs and eyelobes with A Maze From Hell: an experimental projection experience containing a virtual maze, death traps and light puppets, all set to an original minimalist electronic score. Plus, a verbal demonstration of voracious verbosity by legendary record-breaking fast-talker John “Motormouth” Moschitta Jr. (aka the fast-talking FedEx guy, aka the fast-talking Micro Machines guy.) If you hate non-stop entertainment, then be warned, for this might be the coolest show of all time. More acts TBA!
This is one of the best things at EIF, and you can go for free. Simply drop me an email to devin at badassdigest.com with TALENT SHOW in the headline. I'll pick one winner to get a pair of tickets. Do me a favor - only enter if you can actually go. Too many of these contests end with people backing out at the last minute.
If you'd rather not wait for me to pick a winner, you can buy tickets right here.
Watch the trailer for this! Yes, John "Motormouth" Moschitta Jr will be showing off his fast-talking skills live on stage. How could you miss this show?
