Online Course in ‘Comedy” by Trav SD.

Check out the Onlne Course in Comedy taught by Trav SD.

April is a crazy month for classic comedy anniversaries, including the birthdays of Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd and (this year) the centennial of the first comedy short directed by Buster Keaton (though not the first one he released). And numerous others, as well. Join me Monday, April 19 (7pm) for my zoom crash course on classic comedy, where we’ll be talking about these guys and many others, and what makes them unique, how they influenced each other, and everyone who came since! The talk will be available only to members of my Patreon family — go here to join so you can take part in all the Travalanche zoom talks, and other exclusive benefits, like my upcoming Podcast about Old Time Medicine Shows, coming up in early May. Come find out why the poet tell us “April is the Foolish Month”!

‘Once Upon a Time In Coney Island’. 12/5/20 ~ A Benefit

Life hasn’t been the same without the joy of visiting Coney Island USA! Not being able to see the shows, chat with friends and eat some popcorn at the Freak Bar. This Saturday the folks there have organized an amazing cast of ‘very important’ people for your viewing pleasure!

From their site: Once Upon a Time in Coney Island, a salon-like evening of readings, stories, performances, and memories that capture the heart and soul of the People’s Playground. Hosted by the inimitable Adam Realman, our Museum benefit will feature luminaries including Neil Gaiman, Alice Hoffman, Kevin Baker, Bill Griffith, Todd Robbins, Richard Eagan, Trav SD, and others to be announced. Amid the chaos and strife that defined 2020, this special event is an easy escape into the wonders of Coney Island. Apart but together, we’ll focus on what makes this place so magical … and with your generous support, begin the next chapter in its spectacular story.

For more information go visit them ‘virtually’ and see what is in store for you when you attend this ‘Grand Event’.

Ticket sales end on Saturday, December 5, at 12pm ET

Knoxferatu V ~ Oct 20th ~ Silent Horror Streaming Online

The annual silent horror event from Knoxville, TN is back for its 5th year in a virtual mini-edition.

Streaming live on October 20th, 2020 at 7:30 pm

Hosted by Kelly Robinson

Knoxferatu is an annual silent horror film event in Knoxville, Tennessee, pairing silent features and shorts with live musicians for an unforgettable Halloween-season cinema experience.

The V doesn’t just stand for Knoxferatu’s fifth year—it also stands for VIRTUAL.

Rather than canceling the event during the pandemic, Knoxferatu is breaking out of Knoxville with a live streaming mini-event for everyone.

Oops! All Shorts!

One of the audience’s favorite parts of Knoxferatu every year is the slate of creepy, weird, and obscure shorts. So, for the virtual mini-edition of Knoxferatu, the event will be completely made up of shorts.

Knoxferatu V will feature some of the most popular comedy-horror shorts from past years, as well as some new picks.

Live music accompaniment by Ben Model

Knoxferatu V will be streamed on YouTube with live music accompaniment by Ben Model, one of the classic film world’s leading silent film accompanists.
