Jolly Rancher — David Wayne Reed

You know what you call a gay farmer?


David Wayne Reed and I got to know each oth­er while work­ing togeth­er in Artist Inc (by work­ing I mean laugh­ing my ass off). And let me tell you he is a tal­ent­ed, bril­liant, hand­some, and fun­ny guy. And not just any fun­ny. Tears rolling down my cheeks kin­da fun­ny. Take well timed sips of my bev­er­age kin­da fun­ny. Be mind­ful of who I sit across from, lest I be wear­ing their drink too kin­da fun­ny. Yep, I mean fun­ny, fun­ny.

So it is pret­ty easy for me to guar­an­tee that the fun­ni­est man I know, David Wayne Reed, will have you in tears in his one man show, Jol­ly Ranch­er. Both tear­ful­ly fun­ny and poignant, it is a show you can’t miss.

Not in Kansas City?

You will have to wait just a lit­tle longer until his book comes out next year. It is already on my Christ­mas list for 2013 and after you read this excerpt it will be on yours too!

Have you been fol­low­ing the “Buy Per­son­al” series that David Wayne Reed is a part of? If not, you should be!

I am high­light­ing the peo­ple in my cre­ative com­mu­ni­ty, which is com­prised of our friends all across the coun­try (and you too Jake). These tal­ent­ed peo­ple make things with their hands, write things, record things, per­form things. They are the peo­ple that make our world inter­est­ing. I hope you will con­sid­er giv­ing these things and sup­port­ing these peo­ple this hol­i­day sea­son. When you give the gift of the arts you are giv­ing two gifts — to the recip­i­ent and to the mak­er. That’s a win in my book.

Check out the peo­ple I have already fea­tured and sub­scribe to the blog using the box to the right so you won’t miss any of the awe­some peo­ple com­ing up!
