Episode 2 is here! In this week’s episode, Mike get to do some work on an artsy short, and proves that when it comes to dramatic deaths, “bigger” isn’t necessarily “better”. Featuring the comedic talents of Meghan Blakeman and Robbie Taylor, this episode gives new meaning to the idea of laughing at the face of death.

The first episode of American Kirare-Yaku is now live on YouTube! I’m so humbled by the great work of my cast and crew on this series, and I’m incredibly excited to share it with the world.
Episode 1 features Mike (our erstwhile hero) explaining just what a “Kirare-Yaku” is, and going to work on a…unique…new action film. Featuring the comedic talents of Erik Cheski and John DeSilvestri, it’s a hilarious peek inside the world of professional stunt professionals.

I’m so excited to announce that after almost a year of work, my new webseries American Kirare-Yaku is coming this Labor Day! American Kirare-Yaku follows the adventures of Mike, a lowly stuntman and fight choreographer trying to make a living in a job that’s all about dying.
Written and directed by me, and featuring the work of incredibly talented actors like Erik Cheski, John DeSilvestri, Amanda B. Goodman and Laura King Otazo (among others), American Kirare-Yaku is sure to tickle your funny bone as much as it broke mine. The first episode will come out on Labor Day, and more will be released weekly through the month of September.

I’m thrilled to share that the folks at Times Square Central came to see our showcase production of Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? at Dixon Place, and they loved it (and rather liked me as well)! You can read the full review here.
An excerpt: “Playwright, Joshua Young, skillfully masters the psyches of his characters so that we may look voyeuristically at the kind of every day life that precedes [sic] war. Young manages to find light and humor and depth and reality. Beautifully directed by Lucia Bellini, this play is well worth seeing.”
Given that the purpose of the showcase was to help get this new work to to the public and drum up interest in the show, we couldn’t be happier that it’s now being noticed critically as well. Keep your eyes on www.WhoMournsForBobTheGoon.com and my site for more news on the future of this piece!
