My day of birth: an open invitation | 06:09 PM

Two years back, I posted the following:In celebration of my birthday: a glance back to December 2002, when I posted these documents relating to my birth, as well as notable events on this website from birthdays past:

A glance back at a glance back. How reflective. But now, onto the future! For I suspect this coming birthday promises to be either my best or my worst... for me. For others, I have no doubt it shall be enjoyable. For this is the year when an entire show has been created not to celebrate me, or my birth, but to mock me, and my birth. To wit:

And so, I invite you to share in my humiliation as I creep minute-​by-​minute towards the achievement of the tender age of 35, and celebrate with an entire night of celebratory fun, culminating in the ringing in of my actual day of birth, and including the public mockery and no doubt deep embarrassment of none other than yours truly, LLC.

So, please join me at Public Assembly this coming Monday, March 30 starting at 8:00pm for JVG/Porkpie's Birthday Party and show!

Monday, March 30 @ 8:00pm
Public Assembly, 70 North 6th Street, Williamsburg
L train to Bedford Ave (1st stop in Brooklyn)

* I'll arrive at 8:00pm to get the night started with the 2-for-1 happy hour, and pre-show celebration...

* At 9:00pm(ish), I take the stage but keep my clothes on when I host the Kickoff show. After that, I'm off work for the night, and will settle back at the bar with such friends as are in attendance to watch...

* PORK ROAST at 10:00pm. Yes, my lovely wife has decided that the best way to celebrate this milestone of age is with a show in which many of my burlesque friends mock me on stage. I am, to say the least, trepidatious, but if nothing else it should be fun... for everyone except me!

As the press release says: "The burlesque world is but rarely graced with figures of towering talent, matchless intellect, humanitarian instincts and unrestrained charisma; and Jonny Porkpie falls short of greatness in not only these but so very many other ways..."

Sigh.

* Then, at Midnight, we'll drink in MY ACTUAL DAY OF BIRTH with another 2-for-1 birthday happy hour, and will continue drinking until such time as we are bodily ejected from the bar.

Come for the whole night, or just parts thereof -- and if burlesque isn't your thing, please come celebrate with me pre-or-post show! (I was thinking of having a non-show birthday celebration, but then thought: to hell with it, this is how I have fun. So I hope you'll join me in it.)

Cover is usually ten bucks, but since it's my birthday, they're giving my friends a discount: mention my name at the door (Jon, JVG, Porkpie, whatever) and they'll cut that in half -- only $5.
