Something is happening for the first time ever.

Most of you probably don't know this, but six months ago my husband, Jonathan Bownds, started taking improv classes and my improv school, Merlin Works. And this Sunday at 8pm at ZACH he is going to be performing in his graduation show. And then I'll be performing with The Known Wizards in the same show.

That's right: Jon and I are performing improv in the same show. 15 years in, you don't get many firsts. But this is it. I can't wait to see it. You should come too! http://ow.ly/CduA303bATv
