Performing in Canada -- please help me spread the word!
I'll be performing at the London, Ontario festival June 3 - June 13.

My show, "The Chronic Single's Handbook," is about a never-married guy who takes a trip around the world looking for the woman of his dreams. This is an edgy comedy for adults and not meant for kids! It is based on a novel that I'm now circulating to agents. Details on the show: http://www.londonfringe.ca/schedule/shows/chronic-singles-handbook

Can you help me spread the word so I have decent attendance? If you could mention to people you know who might come or post or share on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ I would be grateful and happy to return the favor.

Here are some sample tweets and Google+/Facebook/LinkedIn shares

Sample Tweet:

Starting a book with an action scene is like saying, “I love you” on the first date. Premature. The purpose of the first page is to make me care. Give me feelings for your character.
