Posted: May 27th, 2011 | No Comments »

Meet Brian Kimmet the princely puddle maker in Hamlet, Prince of Puddles. You can also see him as Macbeth in Macbeth and the Monster and Eddie Bastino of Bastardistan in King O’Leary – all part of the Fun Family Festival of Tragedy.

What’s behind your best work?

A phenomenal ensemble and a genius director.

Name three characteristics of every creative person you have met.

Sensitive, expressive and crazy

What would you put in a time capsule if you were to open it 50 years from now on 2061?

A Twinkie. I hear they’ve got an incredible shelf life.

What’s your favorite word or letter?

Until an age I’m ashamed to admit, I thought LMNO was one letter. Cause when you sing the alphabet song, those four kind of all run together! So that’s my favorite.

What’s your favorite music of all time?

All time?! Jeez Louise! My grandpa playing the piano. He was a jazz pianist in the 30’s and even at 96 years old he could still tickle the ivories with the best of them.

What are you working on right now?

I am thrilled to be working with L’Enfant Terrible on the Fun Family Festival of Tragedy. I also host the show ‘The Morning After’ on There’s a new 5-minute episode every weekday covering everything you missed from the night before in TV & pop culture. It’s short, sweet and super fun.

Popsicle, Fugicle, or Creamsicle?

Creamsicle. Hands down.

You could check out the Morning After Show or you could meet Brian in person at the Fun Family Festival of Tragedy. Opening June 4 at the Bootleg Theater.
