Join us on Wednesday, April 26th at 7pm in the store to hear Dudley Riggs read and discuss his new book, "Flying Funny: My Life without a Net." Book signing to follow.
The unusual gravity-defying first act of improvisational theater’s founding father; the fun of storytelling with the wry insights and observations of growing up in show business.
In "Flying Funny," Dudley Riggs shares many highs and lows while describing circus life and the evolution of America’s popular entertainment during the twentieth century. From his early life in circus and vaudeville to his creation of the Brave New Workshop, we see how his show business experience and instincts helped him create in Minneapolis what became the “next wave” in American entertainment—improvisation.
