We last left our hero, the hypersensitive F.W. Thomas (only slightly renowned as a novelist, attorney, bureaucrat, bon vivant, D.C. fixer, and devoted friend) in the clutches of a certain Washington Post reporter, whose tart-tongued ministrations forced Mr. Thomas into months of seclusion from which he has only just emerged.
His raging self-doubt and inner turmoil notwithstanding, Mr. Thomas drops to his two knees and pleads with you to attend this, the Fourth Inaugural Edition of the F.W. Thomas Performances.
We are convening Monday, September 18 at 7:30PM in the big room at the Warehouse Theater. For the demonstrably ludicrous admission of $3, you will enjoy the best efforts of:
Jonathan Coulton. The singer/songwriter whose cover of "Baby Got Back" is a bona fide sensation on The Internets. Click here if you have no faith.
Reihan Salam, a writer living in Washington, D.C., explaining the hilariously lamentable phenomenon of the "Beta Male."
Elspeth Reeve, a reporter at the New Republic, on her forbidden love for Ann Coulter.
T.M. Lowery, F.W. Thomas artist-in-residence, presenting his cartoon journalings.
And F.W. Thomas Impresario and Master of Ceremonies Adam Mazmanian will explain what it is like to watch one's father slowly but inexorably transform into a doppelganger
of Kim Jong-Il.
The Warehouse Theater is located at 1017-1021 7th Street NW. It is a short and not altogether unpleasant walk from the Chinatown/Gallery Place Metro. Phone is 202-783-3933.
Mr. Thomas has missed you lo these many months, and bids you to rejoin him. Please do not disappoint him, as he is very, very fragile.
