Are you ready for Josh-a-palooza? It’s 10 times better than Lollapalooza and it’s all about Bay Area cult icon Josh Kornbluth, who’s known for his comedic (and usually autobiographical) monologues. Kornbluth is one of a small group of people, such as Spalding Gray and Lily Tomlin, whom people will eagerly pay to listen to monologue. It’s easy to see how Kornbluth built his audience. He’s led an unusual life and is absolutely compelling in his retelling of it. Some of his works detail his life as an “inept legal assistant,” as a communist in the United States, and his deep research of and affection for Ben Franklin. Amongst his many works featured at the first annual Josh-a-palooza, The Mathematics of Change is a worthy title. He goes in hard on his love of mathematics, but also talks about where it fell short during his freshman year in college. Many grand comparisons to life are made.
