I am on my way to Los Angeles to attend Outfest.
On Sunday I will be at the Ford Amphitheatre announcing the award winners before the screening of Dare, the really amazing film by Adam Salky and David Brind in which I make a cameo (no small parts, only small actors remember). It is the closing film of the festival.
And on Saturday at 3.30pm I will be at Redcat, 631 W 2nd st, Los Angeles for the screening of P-Town Diaries. Afterwards I'll be doing a Q&A with my friend Joe Mantegna who has made this really amazing documentary about Provincetown. It's also having its world premiere in LOGO on July 25th. I narrate it.
You can check out the trailer here
Here I am being very mean to Emmy Rossum in Dare.

I Bought A Blue Car Today, my one-man musical extravaganza is coming to the Vaudeville Theatre in London's West End for 8 performances only from 1-6 September.
I will be performing it with Lance Horne, my trusty musical director/composer and a band of young Brits. We did the show earlier this year at Lincoln Center, NYC and the the Sydney Opera House so it's about time that it came to Blighty!
Here's the statement I made about the West End run: “I am so excited to be bringing my show to London and especially to the Vaudeville Theatre, because I think the show itself is a bit vaudeville - it’s just me, my band, some funny stories and some great songs. But the connection I feel with an audience when performing it is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced and I can’t wait to share that with London.” Book tickets here
Also, coming soon, I Bought A Blue Car Today the album!! Yes, we are in the studio as I type. And I have written a song with Lance on it called Next to Me!

Web Therapy is available on Itunes!
It's an internet series created by the amazing Lisa Kudrow and Don Roos and Dan Bucatinsky. I saw the first season online and just loved it, and then Lisa asked me if I'd like to be in the second and I jumped at the chance.
It's about a dodgy therapist, Dr Fiona Wallace, who does three minute therapy sessions via her computer with various patients. I play Austen Clarke, A Scottish mogul.
