Comedy at the Cocteau

Movies are not the only thing we offer at the Jean Cocteau.  Since reopening in August, we've had live music, magic, vaudeville, costume contests, some amazing author events and booksignings, birthday parties, Skype interviews, lectures, meetings... and now for the first time we are going to bring some great stand-up comedy to Santa Fe.

Author and comedian JOHN HODGMAN will be coming to the Cocteau on June 2 to perform his stand-up show, "I Stole Your Dad," presenting new observations on subjects including how to dress like a young and relevant person, fax machines and other obsolete technology, marihuana and Downton Abbey, the state songs of Tennessee, the film criticism of Ayn Rand, and how to spend your time when the world did not end like you were certain it would on December 21st of last year.

John Hodgman is an author and performer best known as the “Resident Expert” on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, his COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE trilogy, and for his podcast and New York Times Magazine column, Judge John Hodgman.

This event is still two months off and hasn't even been officially announced in our newsletter or put up on our website yet, and yet as of this afternoon we had already sold more than 80 tickets.  The Cocteau has only 125 seats, but if you'd like to come and hear John, do head over to our website and get your tickets now, before they're all gone.


See you at the show.

The UK
I really wish I could visit, but plane tickets are expensive. You ever decide to open one in the UK, I'll be there every night. Somehow, though, I don't think the lure of Tunbridge Wells beats that of Sante Fe.

The Hour of the Wolf
Hey George! I was just wondering if you could explain a little more about the different references to time you use in A Dance With Dragons and more recently in The Princess and the Queen. You frequently use terms as "The hour of the wolf", as well as other animals and things such as owl, bat, ghosts, and different weapons such as sword and spear.

I felt like the hour of the bat would be somewhere between 10pm and midnight. That was when me and my sister ran down to the river at nights looking at bats hunting.
Do all the references to animals and weapons have a direct connection to a time of the day, or is it more symbolic as a time of war or betrayal?

Have a nice day.

Re: The Hour of the Wolf
They refer to times of day and night, but with rather less specificity than our own numerical system of hours and minutes.

Sounds Fun!
Hi, Mr. Martin - I wish I could come to The Cocteau - but I am busy and it is just too far away from me... Sounds great, though. Also, I am looking forward to reading Fevre Dream soon, and I was wondering if the name Fevre River Packet Co., as in the place in Santa Fe, is from Fevre Dream. Also, I am really excited to read Tuf Voyaging. I just finished both Tuf stories from Dreamsongs Volume II and they were great. And on the topic of Fevre River, Is there any specific time frame that I should email them, if I have any inquiries? Thanks a lot - I'm a huge fan of your books and stories, and I am excited to read more. -Caleb Spall
