Feast of Fun #461, Chicago (appearance)

On September 26, 2006, I appeared on Feast of Fun, a Chicago-based LGBTQ comedy podcast.  On show #395 – Life on Marsian, I spoke with Fausto Ferños and Marc Felion about puppets, studying theater at Cal Arts, gender, and the war in Iraq.

From the Feast of Fun #395:

Our delightfully wacky friend, puppetteer and modern-day Truman Capote. Marsian De Lellis comes on the show to talk about puppets, studying theater at Cal Arts, gender, the war in Iraq and puppets.

Marsian suprised me with these vintage photos of a collaboration installation we did for my MFA thesis exibition at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They didn’t know what to do with us. Marsian and I drove to the suburbs to get spray paint (you can’t buy it in the city) and spent two days painting this huge room SILVER and BLUE. The masks didn’t work too well, but the results were fantastic.

The Feast of Fun podcast (formerly titled “Feast of Fools”) is a Chicago-based talk show hosted by Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion that showcases celebrity guests, artists, musicians, actors, and members of the LGBT community and those who support them. A typical program will include one or more of a number of features, including roundtable discussions, unusual news and social trends, LGBT issues, comedy, music, food and cocktail recipes, or interviews. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Fausto Fernós created the Feast of Fools in 1998 as wacky artists variety show in Chicago, Illinois. Feast of Fun grew out of an audio blog to promote the live show
