The Play's The Thing...

Monday, April 23, 2007 - 09:16 PM

New York theatre buffs! I come bearing news!

In mid-May, I take off my cartooning hat and put on my acting hat...travelling to New York for a special one-week run of my wife's play "Skirts & Flirts" at The Kraine Theatre (85 East 4th St., 10003). If you remember, "Skirts & Flirts" was the 13-person monologue show with the sold-out Los Angeles run. It's a really enjoyable night o' comedy -- and I get a great turn onstage with a monologue as a beleagured groom. And of course, getting the chance to do it on the New York stage will be especially if you can make it out, I hope you'll come.

Showtimes are: May 16, 17, 18 @ 8PM; and May 19 @ 2PM & 8PM

The cast, as these IMDB links make clear, is pretty awesome- sauce. (In fact, I just now realized that I'm the only cast member WITHOUT an IMDB listing. I should fake one and say I was on "Walker, Texas Ranger".)

Tickets are available at the door, but the LA shows tended to go pretty quickly -- so I'd recommend picking up tickets early.

Also! There's a good chance of a meet 'n greet book-signing while I'm in New York -- I'll let you know as the schedule solidifies.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Monday, April 23, 2007 - 02:27 PM

I'm happy to announce two bits of news in the Sheldon Store: a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, and a new Pay-By-Check option.

Since my goal with Sheldon is to bring a little joy into the world, I'm always looking for new ways to make the site more enjoyable overall. So both of these bits of news are nice little additions.

The satisfaction guarantee is simple: it allows you to return any order you're not satisfied with for a full refund on the purchase price and original shipping. As a small, independent store, this is a hefty pledge to make, but I feel pretty good about it. I've seen thousands of folks come away happy with their Sheldon stuff. And your e-mails tell me we're getting it right with quality and customer service and all that jazz. But in the odd chance that you're not satisfied, the refund guarantee is there for you. Take a sec to read more about it at the Sheldon Store.

The Pay-By-Check option is another new wrinkle for the store. It lets you pay with a mailed check drawn on any US bank. That means you can now pay by check, e-check, Paypal, or by major credit card -- which covers all the bases, I think!

As always, if you have comments or suggestions on the site or on these new tidbits, just drop me a line. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the additions.

Today's strip is not the first time that Gramp has tried to pass off random, totally untrue facts as gospel. Example A.
