XIZ*TUBSUFEEPJOHUIJTJOUIFmSTUQMBDFw Miss Tess confesses to not having much .JTT5FTTDPOGFTTFTUPOPUIBWJOHNVDI of a life outside music, saying that when PGBMJGFPVUTJEFNVTJD TBZJOHUIBUXIFO she's not playing or recording herself, TIFTOPUQMBZJOHPSSFDPSEJOHIFSTFMG  she's sleeping or seeing other artists TIFTTMFFQJOHPSTFFJOHPUIFSBSUJTUT perform. QFSGPSN She says her songs come from "heart4IFTBZTIFSTPOHTDPNFGSPNiIFBSU break and relationships," from daily life, CSFBLBOESFMBUJPOTIJQT wGSPNEBJMZMJGF  and from thinking about "things you're BOEGSPNUIJOLJOHBCPVUiUIJOHTZPVSF not supposed to do" and "things you're OPUTVQQPTFEUPEPwBOEiUIJOHTZPVSF not supposed to say." A song she wrote OPUTVQQPTFEUPTBZw"TPOHTIFXSPUF that fits the latter category is "I Only ReUIBUmUTUIFMBUUFSDBUFHPSZJTi*0OMZ3F ally Miss You When I'm Stoned." BMMZ.JTT:PV8IFO*N4UPOFEw

"Lately, BHFBEJGGFSFOUTFU wTIFTBJEi-BUFMZ  my favorite experiences are when we're NZGBWPSJUFFYQFSJFODFTBSFXIFOXFSF playing something like 'I Don't Need That QMBZJOHTPNFUIJOHMJLFA*%POU/FFE5IBU Man,' a jump blues tune I wrote, when .BO BKVNQCMVFTUVOF*XSPUF XIFO everyone's shaking a leg.

*TUIFSFBTPOHUIBUZPVBSF Is there a song that you are either most proud of or feel the FJUIFSNPTUQSPVEPGPSGFFMUIF most connected to on it? NPTUDPOOFDUFEUPPOJU I always feel closer to songs that *BMXBZTGFFMDMPTFSUPTPOHTUIBU kind of force their way out through LJOEPGGPSDFUIFJSXBZPVUUISPVHI the writing process. SongwritUIFXSJUJOHQSPDFTT4POHXSJU ing is kind of like therapy for me; JOHJTLJOEPGMJLFUIFSBQZGPSNF sometimes it becomes a way of TPNFUJNFTJUCFDPNFTBXBZPG sorting out those deeper, hardTPSUJOHPVUUIPTFEFFQFS IBSE to-reach feelings and ideas that UPSFBDIGFFMJOHTBOEJEFBTUIBU you're not fully aware of. Although ZPVSFOPUGVMMZBXBSFPG"MUIPVHI I have some sort of connection to *IBWFTPNFTPSUPGDPOOFDUJPOUP each song on the record, "FuriFBDITPOHPOUIFSFDPSE i'VSJ ous Pace" and "Road Seldom PVT1BDFwBOEi3PBE4FMEPN Traveled" are both songs I feel 5SBWFMFEwBSFCPUITPOHT*GFFM close to. When they were done, I DMPTFUP8IFOUIFZXFSFEPOF * realized each of these songs had a SFBMJ[FEFBDIPGUIFTFTPOHTIBEB personal message for me. QFSTPOBMNFTTBHFGPSNF

You had no less than four :PVIBEOPMFTTUIBOGPVS drummers play on the CD. Why ESVNNFSTQMBZPOUIF$%8IZ so many? TPNBOZ This record was kind of hodge5IJTSFDPSEXBTLJOEPGIPEHF podged together over the course QPEHFEUPHFUIFSPWFSUIFDPVSTF of a couple years; work on some of PGBDPVQMFZFBSTXPSLPOTPNFPG these songs actually began before UIFTFTPOHTBDUVBMMZCFHBOCFGPSF I released my first album (2009). *SFMFBTFENZGJSTUBMCVN   Over that span, I found myself 0WFSUIBUTQBO *GPVOENZTFMG working with a lot of different XPSLJOHXJUIBMPUPGEJGGFSFOU musicians, drummers included. NVTJDJBOT ESVNNFSTJODMVEFE I was trying to find the right *XBTUSZJOHUPGJOEUIFSJHIU combination of players for a band. DPNCJOBUJPOPGQMBZFSTGPSBCBOE For various reasons, it didn't work 'PSWBSJPVTSFBTPOT JUEJEOUXPSL out, and I ended up piecing this PVU BOE*FOEFEVQQJFDJOHUIJT record together mostly by myself SFDPSEUPHFUIFSNPTUMZCZNZTFMG and whoever else was available BOEXIPFWFSFMTFXBTBWBJMBCMF when the inspiration struck. The XIFOUIFJOTQJSBUJPOTUSVDL5IF good news is that I have been HPPEOFXTJTUIBU*IBWFCFFO working with bassist Pete Genova XPSLJOHXJUICBTTJTU1FUF(FOPWB and drummer Seth Kearns pretty BOEESVNNFS4FUI,FBSOTQSFUUZ steadily over the last few months. TUFBEJMZPWFSUIFMBTUGFXNPOUIT It looks like I'll be developing the *UMPPLTMJLF*MMCFEFWFMPQJOHUIF next batch of songs with them. OFYUCBUDIPGTPOHTXJUIUIFN I've always wanted to do a record *WFBMXBZTXBOUFEUPEPBSFDPSE with a solid group. My first albums XJUIBTPMJEHSPVQ.ZGJSTUBMCVNT were done mostly in isolation; XFSFEPOFNPTUMZJOJTPMBUJPO I'm really excited to see what we *NSFBMMZFYDJUFEUPTFFXIBUXF come up with. DPNFVQXJUI Where did you grow up, and 8IFSFEJEZPVHSPXVQ BOE where do you live now? XIFSFEPZPVMJWFOPX I was born in Taunton, Mass., *XBTCPSOJO5BVOUPO .BTT  but from age 10 or so I lived way CVUGSPNBHFPSTP*MJWFEXBZ up north in Sherman Mills, on VQOPSUIJO4IFSNBO.JMMT PO the border of Aroostook County. I UIFCPSEFSPG"SPPTUPPL$PVOUZ* would spend every summer break XPVMETQFOEFWFSZTVNNFSCSFBL during college in the Portland EVSJOHDPMMFHFJOUIF1PSUMBOE area, and when I graduated I BSFB BOEXIFO*HSBEVBUFE* knew this was where I wanted LOFXUIJTXBTXIFSF*XBOUFE to be.

How bad of a year was it for movies? "T As )PXCBEPGBZFBSXBTJUGPSNPWJFT late as August, I was wondering if there MBUFBT"VHVTU *XBTXPOEFSJOHJGUIFSF would be enough films to fill a 10-best XPVMECFFOPVHImMNTUPmMMBCFTU list. Then came the fall movie season and MJTU5IFODBNFUIFGBMMNPWJFTFBTPOBOE everything changed. FWFSZUIJOHDIBOHFE Overall, 2011 will be remembered as a 0WFSBMM XJMMCFSFNFNCFSFEBTB mediocre year for cinema. But the bright NFEJPDSFZFBSGPSDJOFNB#VUUIFCSJHIU spots burned really, really bright. TQPUTCVSOFESFBMMZ SFBMMZCSJHIU Here is a list of the 10 best films I saw )FSFJTBMJTUPGUIFCFTUmMNT*TBX this year, with some honorable menUIJTZFBS XJUITPNFIPOPSBCMFNFO tions. (A side note: Kenneth Lonergan's UJPOT "TJEFOPUF,FOOFUI-POFSHBOT "Margaret," which features a formii.BSHBSFU wXIJDIGFBUVSFTBGPSNJ dable performance by Anna Paquin as a EBCMFQFSGPSNBODFCZ"OOB1BRVJOBTB teenager whose life is changed by a bus UFFOBHFSXIPTFMJGFJTDIBOHFECZBCVT accident, would have been high on my list BDDJEFOU XPVMEIBWFCFFOIJHIPONZMJTU if distributor Fox Searchlight had opened JGEJTUSJCVUPS'PY4FBSDIMJHIUIBEPQFOFE the film in more than a couple of cities or UIFmMNJONPSFUIBOBDPVQMFPGDJUJFTPS released it on DVD. But they didn't.) SFMFBTFEJUPO%7%#VUUIFZEJEOU

1. "MONEYBALL": Director Bennett i.0/&:#"-w%JSFDUPS#FOOFUU Miller used the fact-based of story of .JMMFSVTFEUIFGBDUCBTFEPGTUPSZPG Billy Beane, the Oakland As manager #JMMZ#FBOF UIF0BLMBOE"TNBOBHFS who thought outside the box, to illustrate XIPUIPVHIUPVUTJEFUIFCPY UPJMMVTUSBUF the ways in which every conceivable UIFXBZTJOXIJDIFWFSZDPODFJWBCMF industry has been forced to transform to JOEVTUSZIBTCFFOGPSDFEUPUSBOTGPSNUP survive in the brave new online world. TVSWJWFJOUIFCSBWFOFXPOMJOFXPSME The script, written by the formidable 5IFTDSJQU XSJUUFOCZUIFGPSNJEBCMF duo of Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian, EVPPG"BSPO4PSLJOBOE4UFWFO;BJMMJBO  made dry subject matter such as budgetNBEFESZTVCKFDUNBUUFSTVDIBTCVEHFU ary constraints and salary negotiations BSZDPOTUSBJOUTBOETBMBSZOFHPUJBUJPOT utterly absorbing, and the performances VUUFSMZBCTPSCJOH BOEUIFQFSGPSNBODFT by Brad Pitt as Beane and Jonah Hill as CZ#SBE1JUUBT#FBOFBOE+POBI)JMMBT the young statistician who becomes his UIFZPVOHTUBUJTUJDJBOXIPCFDPNFTIJT advisor brought humor and warmth to BEWJTPSCSPVHIUIVNPSBOEXBSNUIUP

what should have been a somewhat dull XIBUTIPVMEIBWFCFFOBTPNFXIBUEVMM movie. Instead, "Moneyball" was funny, NPWJF*OTUFBE i.POFZCBMMwXBTGVOOZ  thrilling, illuminating and affecting. Like UISJMMJOH JMMVNJOBUJOHBOEBGGFDUJOH-JLF the best sports movies, it transcended its UIFCFTUTQPSUTNPWJFT JUUSBOTDFOEFEJUT genre to become a resonant commentary HFOSFUPCFDPNFBSFTPOBOUDPNNFOUBSZ on contemporary culture.

2. "MELANCHOLIA": Lars von Trier's i.&-"/$)0-*"w-BSTWPO5SJFST first film born out of his bout with depresmSTUmMNCPSOPVUPGIJTCPVUXJUIEFQSFT sion, 2009's "Antichrist," was an intimate TJPO Ti"OUJDISJTU wXBTBOJOUJNBUF study of a married couple mourning their TUVEZPGBNBSSJFEDPVQMFNPVSOJOHUIFJS dead son who did horrific, unwatchable EFBETPOXIPEJEIPSSJmD VOXBUDIBCMF things to each other. "Melancholia" is also UIJOHTUPFBDIPUIFSi.FMBODIPMJBwJTBMTP about depression, and it, too, centers on BCPVUEFQSFTTJPO BOEJU UPP DFOUFSTPO two characters, sisters (Kirsten Dunst UXPDIBSBDUFST TJTUFST ,JSTUFO%VOTU and Charlotte Gainsbourg) struggling to BOE$IBSMPUUF(BJOTCPVSH TUSVHHMJOHUP understand each other and often failVOEFSTUBOEFBDIPUIFSBOEPGUFOGBJM ing. But von Trier's scope this time was JOH#VUWPO5SJFSTTDPQFUIJTUJNFXBT cosmic, with a planet on a collision course DPTNJD XJUIBQMBOFUPOBDPMMJTJPODPVSTF with Earth hurtling closer. With apologies XJUI&BSUIIVSUMJOHDMPTFS8JUIBQPMPHJFT to T. S. Eliot: This is the way the world UP54&MJPU5IJTJTUIFXBZUIFXPSME ends - not with a whimper but a colossal, FOEToOPUXJUIBXIJNQFSCVUBDPMPTTBM  mind-blowing bang. NJOECMPXJOHCBOH 3. "A SEPARATION": This deceptively i"4&1"3"5*0/w5IJTEFDFQUJWFMZ simple drama from Iranian writer-director TJNQMFESBNBGSPN*SBOJBOXSJUFSEJSFDUPS Asghar Fardahi, about the consequences "THIBS'BSEBIJ BCPVUUIFDPOTFRVFODFT following a married couple's legal sepaGPMMPXJOHBNBSSJFEDPVQMFTMFHBMTFQB ration, is nothing less than a miracle - a SBUJPO JTOPUIJOHMFTTUIBOBNJSBDMFoB movie that holds its own with literature NPWJFUIBUIPMETJUTPXOXJUIMJUFSBUVSF of the highest order, and an uncommonly PGUIFIJHIFTUPSEFS BOEBOVODPNNPOMZ wise and empathetic study of familial XJTFBOEFNQBUIFUJDTUVEZPGGBNJMJBM bonds and the great pain we can inadCPOETBOEUIFHSFBUQBJOXFDBOJOBE vertently cause to the people we love the WFSUFOUMZDBVTFUPUIFQFPQMFXFMPWFUIF most. The fact that the movie doubles as NPTU5IFGBDUUIBUUIFNPWJFEPVCMFTBT a commentary on the rules and mores of BDPNNFOUBSZPOUIFSVMFTBOENPSFTPG modern-day Iranian society is a bonus. A NPEFSOEBZ*SBOJBOTPDJFUZJTBCPOVT" bonafide masterpiece. (Opens Jan. 27) CPOBmEFNBTUFSQJFDF 0QFOT+BO

4. "THE TREE OF LIFE": The most i5)&53&&0'-*'&w5IFNPTU audacious - and beautiful - movie of the BVEBDJPVToBOECFBVUJGVMoNPWJFPGUIF year, the story of a family in 1950s Texas ZFBS UIFTUPSZPGBGBNJMZJOT5FYBT seen primarily through the eyes of three TFFOQSJNBSJMZUISPVHIUIFFZFTPGUISFF brothers.

That’s where you come in. Unlike “Ragged Isle’s” other seven nominations, which are decided by industry professionals, the fans will decide who gets the top prize in this category. And while Dodd is excited at the prospect of winning it all, he’s grateful for the attention his show, and his cast, have already received. “We wanted to represent Maine in a good way; Maine isn’t normally known for this,” he said. “Just the nominations that we got are sort of saying, ‘Hey, man – ev-

ainers support their filmmakers. Talking to aspiring directors around the state, that theme is a constant. People are eager to donate money, time, locations, chow and good will when fellow Mainers are trying to make their cinematic dreams a reality. And now all it’ll take is a click of the mouse. When last we checked in with Barry Dodd, creator of the Maine Web series “Ragged Isle,” he and his intrepid crew had just completed filming their first season of the “Twin Peaks”esque tale of a young newspaper photographer uncovering a tiny Maine island’s deep, dark secrets. He was exhausted and largely broke – and wondering what was in store for the film’s future. A lot, as it turns out. Since premiering on YouTube and the “Ragged Isle” website (raggedisle.com), the series has become something of a major player in the (admittedly under-the radar) webseries community. “It’s been super far beyond anything we had planned on as far as the response,” says Dodd. That response was helped enormously by the podcast Indie Intertube (indieintertube.tv), which championed the show after Dodd sent them a video, resulting in international attention. “People in Ireland and the U.K. started contacting us,” he said. “(Indie Intertube) became awesome friends of ours; we owe those two ladies a lot.” From there, “Ragged Isle” became a favorite of another influential website, We Love Soaps (welovesoaps.net). “Of all places!” exclaims Dodd. “Actually, they don’t cover just soap operas necessarily – they have a big focus on all independent online series as well. We sent them a link, and things sort of took off. ‘Ragged Isle’

“MONEYBALL” (PG-13, 133 minutes): Filmmaker Bennett Miller barely puts a foot wrong in bringing to life the tale of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane. In 2002 Beane (Brad Pitt) sought to rebuild the slumping A’s and revolutionize baseball recruiting using Sabermetrics. Miller has done a superb job of underplaying Pitt’s native magnetism, which nonetheless peeks out enough to dazzle Yale-educated computer whiz Peter Brand (Jonah Hill). Such logic runs afoul of Beane’s old-school scouts. The secret of “Moneyball” isn’t just that it makes viewers root for Beane and Brand, but for their motley crew of castoffs. Beane can relate: Not

Anna Faris and Chris Evans in “What’s Your Number.”

• Pain Relief • Headache • Stress only was he a would-be star who didn’t live up to his potential, but he now seeks to provide for his young daughter. “Moneyball” rounds all the bases with grace, modesty and a surfeit of heart. Contains some strong profanity. DVD extras: Deleted scenes, bloopers, featurettes “Billy Beane: Re-Inventing the Game” and “Moneyball: Playing the Game.” Also, on Blu-ray, cast and making-of featurettes. “KILLER ELITE” (R, 116 minutes): In this simultaneously silly and overwrought action thriller, Jason Statham plays Danny Bryce, a professional assassin with a soft spot. Living with blood on his hands seems pretty easy for Danny, despite his decision to get out of the business after almost blowing a little girl’s head off. After a mere year’s vacation, however, Danny’s back in the game when he learns that an Arab sheik has taken his friend and former partner Hunter (Robert De Niro) hostage. It seems that Hunter is being used as leverage to get Danny to carry out one last assignment. Keep in mind that all this is just the setup. As it turns out, Danny’s special-ops victims had been taking orders from a shadowy fellow who gets his marching orders from a bunch of even more shadowy fellows. They sit around in conference rooms deciding the fate of the world. Needless to say, they want Danny dead. Contains copious violence and obscenity and some sex and nudity. Extras: Deleted and extended scenes. “WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER” (R, 106 minutes): After breaking up with her 19th lover, Ally (Anna Faris) reads that most women who have had 20 or more sex partners will never get married. Panicking, Ally vows to stay celibate until she can dig up as many of her exes as possible, hoping that one of them has turned into the man of her dreams. Assisting Ally is her neighbor Colin, a sweet but seemingly commitment-phobic hottie. This should tell you a lot. Not that “What’s Your Number?” is devoid of sweetness or humor. The offbeat wedding vows recited by Ally’s sister and her groom are quirky and wry. And, toward the end, a genuinely laugh-inducing moment comes in the form of a voice-mail message. Contains flashes of nudity, steady obscenity and a stream of raunchy, if strained humor. DVD extras:

Unrated extended cut, extended flashback dates, deleted scenes, gag reel. “HIGHER GROUND” (R, 109 minutes): “Higher Ground” is refreshingly free of proselytizing; however, it isn’t a story of faith but of faithlessness. First-time director Vera Farmiga, who also plays the heroine, Corinne, brings an actor’s sensitivity to her behind-the-camera work. The cast (including Joshua Leonard as Corinne’s earnestly uncurious Christian husband, Dagmara Dominczyck as her earthy best friend and Bill Irwin as the pastor of their hippie-meets-bornagain sect) is uniformly solid. But despite all its honesty, the film ultimately feels like a bit of a cop-out. Corinne’s faith, which swings from doubt to surety after her infant daughter is rescued from a bus accident, and then back to doubt again when tragedy strikes another loved one, is shown as something fickle and insubstantial. Late in the story, Corinne meets a hunky, worldly mailman (Sean Mahon) who hints that there may be more to life: books! romance! In that sense, Corinne does, in fact, seem to reach higher ground. Contains sexual dialogue and images and some obscenity. DVD extras: Commentary by Farmiga, Leonard and producer Renn Hawkey; deleted scenes, Los Angeles Film Festival Q & A, making-of featurette. ALSO: “There Be Dragons,” “1911,” “The Scorpion King 3: Battle For Redemption,” “Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season” (HBO), “Answer This!,” “Doctor Who: The Android Invasion” and “Doctor Who: Invasion of the Dinosaurs” (both BBC/Warner), “Diary of a Single Mom,” “A Mile in His Shoes,” “Sinners and Saints,” “NOVA: Iceman Murder Mystery” and “NOVA: Deadliest Volcanoes” (both PBS), “G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero Series 2, Season 1,” “An Idiot Abroad,” “Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1994-2003” (Universal, three-disc set), “Dennis the Menace Season Four (1962-63)” (Shout! Factory, five-disc set), “Hawaii Five-0: The 12th and Final Season (1979-80)” (CBS Home Entertainment/ Paramount Home Entertainment, five-disc set), “The Station Agent” and “The Garfield Show: Dinosaurs and Other Animal Adventures.” – The Washington Post

KiXej^\e[\iZfd`Zj\\jk_\_ldfi Transgender comic sees the humor By AVERY YALE KAMILA #Z"7&3::"-&,".*-" 4UBGG8SJUFS StaffWriter

No one likes a public restroom. However, /PPOFMJLFTBQVCMJDSFTUSPPN)PXFWFS  imagine using the ladies room all your life JNBHJOFVTJOHUIFMBEJFTSPPNBMMZPVSMJGF and suddenly shifting to the men's. BOETVEEFOMZTIJGUJOHUPUIFNFOT 5IJTJTKVTUPOFPGUIFVOVTVBMGBDFUTPG This is just one of the unusual facets of transgender comedian and Maine native USBOTHFOEFSDPNFEJBOBOE.BJOFOBUJWF Ian Harvie's life that he'll share with the *BO)BSWJFTMJGFUIBUIFMMTIBSFXJUIUIF audience during his stand-up comedy BVEJFODFEVSJOHIJTTUBOEVQDPNFEZ show Saturday at Portland Stage. TIPX4BUVSEBZBU1PSUMBOE4UBHF "I want to confirm it for all the ladies out i*XBOUUPDPOmSNJUGPSBMMUIFMBEJFTPVU there - it is far grosser in the men's room UIFSFoJUJTGBSHSPTTFSJOUIFNFOTSPPN than the ladies room," Harvie said. "WomUIBOUIFMBEJFTSPPN w)BSWJFTBJEi8PN en in the ladies room are so quiet. Women FOJOUIFMBEJFTSPPNBSFTPRVJFU8PNFO will never number two in the ladies room. XJMMOFWFSOVNCFSUXPJOUIFMBEJFTSPPN Guys are just gross. I now know what a (VZTBSFKVTUHSPTT*OPXLOPXXIBUB man noise is, and if you want to know what NBOOPJTFJT BOEJGZPVXBOUUPLOPXXIBU it is, you have to come to the show" JUJT ZPVIBWFUPDPNFUPUIFTIPXw The performance, which will include 5IFQFSGPSNBODF XIJDIXJMMJODMVEF guest appearances by Margaret Cho, HVFTUBQQFBSBODFTCZ.BSHBSFU$IP  Selena Luna and Christine O'Leary is set 4FMFOB-VOBBOE$ISJTUJOF0-FBSZ JTTFU to be filmed and turned into a TV special UPCFmMNFEBOEUVSOFEJOUPB57TQFDJBM called "Super Hero." DBMMFEi4VQFS)FSPw "Most everyone these days, even the big i.PTUFWFSZPOFUIFTFEBZT FWFOUIFCJH comics, they produce their own comedy DPNJDT UIFZQSPEVDFUIFJSPXODPNFEZ specials and sell them to networks," said TQFDJBMTBOETFMMUIFNUPOFUXPSLT wTBJE Harvie, who grew up in Maine and now )BSWJF XIPHSFXVQJO.BJOFBOEOPX lives in Los Angeles. "A network isn't goMJWFTJO-PT"OHFMFTi"OFUXPSLJTOUHP ing to pay you to do it, so you produce an JOHUPQBZZPVUPEPJU TPZPVQSPEVDFBO independent comedy film and then you JOEFQFOEFOUDPNFEZmMNBOEUIFOZPV sell it to a network." TFMMJUUPBOFUXPSLw He has his sights set on Showtime, but )FIBTIJTTJHIUTTFUPO4IPXUJNF CVU HBO and Comedy Central are also on his )#0BOE$PNFEZ$FOUSBMBSFBMTPPOIJT pitch list. QJUDIMJTU Audience members will have to sign "VEJFODFNFNCFSTXJMMIBWFUPTJHO release forms, because shots of their SFMFBTFGPSNT CFDBVTFTIPUTPGUIFJS reactions will be a key part of the edited SFBDUJPOTXJMMCFBLFZQBSUPGUIFFEJUFE video. The film will be directed by Liam K. WJEFP5IFmMNXJMMCFEJSFDUFECZ-JBN, Sullivan, with Cho as executive producer. 4VMMJWBO XJUI$IPBTFYFDVUJWFQSPEVDFS Harvie got his start in the business 10 )BSWJFHPUIJTTUBSUJOUIFCVTJOFTT years ago in Portland, where he took a ZFBSTBHPJO1PSUMBOE XIFSFIFUPPLB comedy writing class with Tim Ferrell at DPNFEZXSJUJOHDMBTTXJUI5JN'FSSFMMBU The Comedy Connection. 5IF$PNFEZ$POOFDUJPO "I don't do drugs or drink anymore," he i*EPOUEPESVHTPSESJOLBOZNPSF wIF said, "but stand-up was the best high I'd TBJE iCVUTUBOEVQXBTUIFCFTUIJHI*E ever had." FWFSIBEw He quickly realized that stand-up com)FRVJDLMZSFBMJ[FEUIBUTUBOEVQDPN edy was his passion. However, he was FEZXBTIJTQBTTJPO)PXFWFS IFXBT unsure about his material. VOTVSFBCPVUIJTNBUFSJBM "I was already a year into recognizing I i*XBTBMSFBEZBZFBSJOUPSFDPHOJ[JOH* was transgender," Harvie said. "I was out XBTUSBOTHFOEFS w)BSWJFTBJEi*XBTPVU to my family and friends. I told (Ferrell), UPNZGBNJMZBOEGSJFOET*UPME 'FSSFMM  'I'm afraid I'll be eaten alive on stage if I A*NBGSBJE*MMCFFBUFOBMJWFPOTUBHFJG* tell them who I am.' He said, 'The audiUFMMUIFNXIP*BN)FTBJE A5IFBVEJ ence will feed off you. As long as it's your FODFXJMMGFFEPGGZPV"TMPOHBTJUTZPVS story, it can't be wrong.' " TUPSZ JUDBOUCFXSPOHw The advice gave him the confidence to 5IFBEWJDFHBWFIJNUIFDPOmEFODFUP use the unique material from his own life VTFUIFVOJRVFNBUFSJBMGSPNIJTPXOMJGF in his routine. JOIJTSPVUJOF Four years ago, Harvie moved to Los 'PVSZFBSTBHP )BSWJFNPWFEUP-PT Angeles to pursue his career. One of the "OHFMFTUPQVSTVFIJTDBSFFS0OFPGUIF first people he met was Cho, and has since mSTUQFPQMFIFNFUXBT$IP BOEIBTTJODF toured the world with her. Last summer, UPVSFEUIFXPSMEXJUIIFS-BTUTVNNFS  he organized a comedy festival in Bethel, IFPSHBOJ[FEBDPNFEZGFTUJWBMJO#FUIFM  and will do the same this year. BOEXJMMEPUIFTBNFUIJTZFBS The stage set for the "Super Hero" show 5IFTUBHFTFUGPSUIFi4VQFS)FSPwTIPX is being created by L.L.
