Sleepless (with excitement) in Seattle.

This past weekend was a hum-dinger for the Kill Shakespeare crew.

While Andy, and Anthony did a whirlwind tour of Southern Ontario I was off in the Pacific Northwest getting a chance to enjoy the hospitality of the great folks who run the Emerald City Comic Con.

The show was a HUGE success. Yes, we sold all our books, oodles of t-shirts, buttons, and prints, but that wasn’t what made the show work for me. What made EmCity so amazing were the legions of people we met who came by to express their support, to talk comics or Shakespeare or Canada (especially the Canadian sorry dance).

It was also a real treat to see so many people come out to my writing and business panels as well as to over one-hundred people who saw the Kill Shakespeare Dramatic Reading performed live at the convention. The actors were great, the crowd even better (they even laughed at all my post-show ‘jokes’) and I can honestly say I haven’t been as proud of Anthony, Andy or my work as I was in that moment.

Seattle, I salute thee.

And next year I have to come in a day early so I can tour the underground city. I didn’t know this but Seattle is basically a double decker city down by the water – how cool is that?

Below are some photos from the weekend. To see more surf on over to our Facebook page (Kill Shakespeare).
