One of the songs that wasn't quite ready during our most recent run of Jukebox Stories was this funny and sweet love song dedicated to Brandon Patton's sister and brother-in-law. Here's a free MP3 of "If We Were Gourmanche, I'd Bring Your Dad Goats" and the story behind the song.

My sister got married last month, so I took it upon myself to write a song about her romance. I called up Jeremy, now her husband, and asked him to...

It's Walking for Kisses Weekend! Yes, it's time to share (again!) the video that changed walking and kisses forever! Prince Gomolvilas and Pork Chop's viral video is at about 300K views right now, but Pork Chop really does deserve at least a million, don't you think? Spread it around all weekend long! (Also, be sure to "like" Pork Chop on Facebook--he likes to be liked!)

Playwright/performer Prince Gomolvilas and cat/performer Pork Chop go WALKING...FOR...KISSES! Special thanks to Brandon Patton for capturing them...

"Sunday is closing night! 7PM! I'm so excited! I can't go to sleep! This Chevron station egg salad sandwich is disgusting! I think I might throw up! Seriously! Why?! Why did I do this to myself?! I need electrolytes!" --Prince Gomolvilas

If you're planning to come to The Secrets of Forking on our final Saturday (6/8), we're almost sold out--so buy your tix now! If it's sold out by the time you read this, then we still have some good seats still available for our closing Sunday (6/9) show--but buy your tix now! Thanks, Bay Area! It's been a great run!

One of the pieces in the rotation during the fifth and final week of Jukebox Stories is Pork Chop's "Walking for Kisses" song (see below), sung live by Brandon Patton with high-tech video accompaniment and audience-participatory kissing noises! Will this piece get selected at random during the night you come? Maybe! If not, we've got dozens of other fun tricks up our sleeves! Info and tix: http://impacttheatre.com/

Our first rave review for "The Secrets of Forking!" Thanks to the San Jose Mercury News for saying that we "could do bird calls and still charm the cynicism out of [our] audience." We'd much rather charm the pants off of our audience, because we're pervs, but we'll take what we can get.

Prince Gomolvilas and Brandon Patton have been featured on Berkeley's Impact Theatre stage before, so followers are pretty clear on what their "Jukebox Stories" are all about. As for "The Secret of Forking," it remains a mystery right until the end.

Audiences were sure that the mix of Patton's songs and Gomolvilas' stories were a whole lot of fun, so the duo were back two years later with Jukebox Stories: Forking is a concept I learned about in an incredible book called 'The Full Facts Book of Cold Reading' by Ian Rowland, a member of the skept...
