How comedy should be done

Jason Haws is one of Olympia's favorite actors. He is an actor's actor, the one other actors study to see how it's done. Not that I have any confirmation of that from other actors, but if they don't study him they should. He has more plays under his belt than

James Mongrain and the Stroemple Collection

I was overwhelmed upon stepping into the James Mongrain and Stroemple Collection at the Museum of Glass. It was like stepping into some decadent over-decorated castle - a long shelf running the length of one wall stuffed to overflowing with delicate and elaborately decorated Venetian glass vessels, and on tables

Sax freaks

In a way, it's a bit of a shame that the saxophone, as a totem, came to become irreconcilably tied to either sexy times or terminal hokiness - and frequently both. The instrument has been practically plagued, guilty by association with images of Rob Lowe wailing on one in St.

Pop quiz, hotshot: Where was Saint Patrick born? If you said Ireland, this'll be a useful history lesson. Saint Patrick was born in Britain, then part of the Roman Empire, around 400 A.D. In the Confession, Patrick's alleged autobiography, we learn he came from a wealthy family of Catholic ministers

Where will you be?

St. Patrick's Day is one of those holidays that the general public celebrates for the soul purpose of celebrating. Sure, you have your die hard Irishmen that celebrate the holiday because it's part of their heritage; however, for the most part, the society we live in has a fondness for

Rage on, Lewis Black

Comedian Lewis Black gained fame in the early years of The Daily Show, when his perma-furious stage persona popped from what was then, under host Craig Kilborn, a rather glib half hour of comedy. Over the phone, however, Black's an absolute teddy bear - or maybe it's just that our
