I’m going public!

I have some pretty exciting gigs coming up this month (The Kennedy Center, Riot Act Comedy Theater, the NACA National Conference Showcase, & MORE), and a bunch of the shows are open to the public. Be sure to check out the Public Shows Section below and find out where I’ll be doing my thing this month.

But Jonathan I can’t get out to see you this month because [Insert Excuse Here]… No worries! “Like” Me and/or “Follow” Me, and I’ll keep you posted where I’ll be, and hopefully we can get together soon.

PS: I just got word that I’ll be performing in New York City throughout March. Details are still coming together, so sit by your e-mail machine and I’ll get you the scoop.

My life in bullet points…

My last update was in July, so lots to fill you in on… Join me, won’t you?

  • Back in July and August my wife and I were still on our cross continent excursion/tour. It was great to spent the whole summer together and we had an awesome time as I performed across the US & Canada. Check out our blog at jonathanandlauren.com to read about our camping attempt, lost luggage, and our run in with “the law”.

Click to check out some photos from the road!

  • After I dropped Lauren off at home I got to sleep in my own bed for about 6 hours, and then I caught a plane to Edmonton, AB for the Edmonton Fringe Festival. It’s the 2nd largest festival of its kind in the world. I did a bunch of shows, got to see a bunch of friends, took in a few shows, and even bumped into Zach Galifianakis.
  • In September I performed at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. This was my first time pulling on stripped tights and a puffy shirt. I had a blast! The crowds were great, all of your food comes on a stick, and even the King & Queen came to see my performance. Huzzah. Hopefully I’ll be back again next year! (Photos Below)

Maryland Renaissance Festival 2011

  • In October I was invited to showcase my act for 1000’s of college kids at the NACA Mid Atlantic Conference in Buffalo, NY. Later this month I’m showcasing at the NACA Northeast in Hartford, CT, and I just found out I was selected to perform at NACA Nationals this Spring! With all these college visits someone has give me a honorary doctorate right? Dr. Jonathan Burns has a nice ring to it.

Check in with my College Agent Fresh Variety for more details.


The Facts according to Jonathan: “A 2 person flash mob is just called dancing.”
