    Hanging with the Gamers with Jobs

    The guys over at Gamers with Jobs were kind enough to invite me back on their weekly podcast, the GWJ Conference Call last week to discuss two new games, Dishonored and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.  Always a good time on that show, and you can listen to it here.

    Praise for Noises Off

    Everyone seems to be loving our production of Noises Off at the Norris Center, but there are only 3 performances left!  Check out what people have been saying:

    The Daily Breeze said our production "gets funnier with each passing minute" and mentioned me specifically, saying "The third act pratfall down a flight of stairs remains one of live theater's most daring moments, and Cannata doesn't disappoint. His tumble elicited gasps, then laughs, and it deserves applause."

    You can read the entire review here.

    Twitter is abuzz with compliments for the show, too.  Check out what the Editor-in-Chief of renowned movie blog /Film tweeted:

    "'Noises Off' is my new favorite play. If you're in Socal, don't miss it at Norris Theater. Also@jeffcannata is amazing in it."

    My own buddy and co-host, Dan Trachtenberg, not one to give false praise, also chimed in:

    "If you live in SoCal you must go see Noises Off starring @jeffcannata. It puts the F-U-N in FUN!"

    Parachute Pants and Hammer Time!

    Here are another couple of segments I did for CNET's Always On with Molly Wood.

    First up, the leap out of a helicopter at 10,000 feet to test the iPhone vs the HTC.  This was an absolute thrill for me:

     

     

    For the second segment, I had a lot of fun torturing the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone.  Hope you enjoy watching:

    Doors and Sardines!

    Ever since I saw the fabulous 1992 film version and nearly hurt myself laughing, I have dreamed of being in a production of Noises Off.  So it is with great excitement that I invite you to my upcoming run as Garry/Roger (played by John Ritter in the film) at the beautiful Norris Center Theatre in Rolling Hills Estates!  

    It has been the most challenging role I've ever done, both physically and mentally, but I promise hilarity!  This truly is one of the best stage comedies ever written, and we have a very talented cast bringing it to life.

    The show opens Sept 21st, and runs for only 9 performances until Oct 7th, so get your tickets fast!
