This video is definitely a highlight of my life, and I once had a Letter to the Editor in Entertainment Weekly, so that’s saying something.

A few weeks ago I got the chance to go to Cirque du Soleil in Chicago to see their new production of OVO.  I went with the intentions of auditioning and hopefully making it up to the big stage that night.

Well…as you’ll see in the video, things didn’t exactly go as planned.

Part of why this was such a cool experience was that it comes with such a great contest. If you head on over to the Calgary Facebook page, you can win a HUGE prize. Four tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s OVO, Back Stage passes, FOUR flights to Calgary and two nights accommodation at Hotel Arts!  (If you already live in Calgary, you can fly three of your friends here.)

All you have to do is caption a ridiculous photo of me!  Yup, it’s that easy.

There’s more videos to come, so stay tuned.  I can’t say much, but let’s just say that the embarrassment didn’t stop there.
