Getting to Know Josh McIlvain

Posted July 25th, 2011

Mr. McIlvain’s last day for the 2011 Festival was this past Friday. As the day drew to a close, I realized that maybe I didn’t give him a chance. Maybe every time he yelled at me, he yelled at me for a reason. Maybe things would have been more pleasant had I understood his psyche.

And so, I sat down, for one last time, with Mr. McIlvain, and I really got to know him. I understand him now, I understand why he has such a short fuse and such a small mind and also why he so rarely ventures outside the box, so to speak.

Well, I think everyone should have a chance to really meet Mr. McIlvain. Perhaps this video will mark the end of his villainous reputation. Enjoy!

Josh McIlvain’s show, DEER HEAD: yet another–though equally hilarious, and perhaps even more so, as the first two–evening of outrageous short comedies by Josh McIlvain is part of this year’s Philly Fringe! Tickets are now available here.
