HOUSEHOLD ITEMS – PF18 Interview

HOUSEHOLD ITEMS – PF18 Interview

A moment with Brian Friedland of HOUSEHOLD ITEMS

Why did you choose PortFringe this year?
This is the right place and right crowd to share my absurd-comic music based on commercial product labels, childhood poetry, and bizarre lease documents.

How was your show born?
It was born 10 years ago when I was dating an opera singer and wanted to right some material for us to perform together. I was cleaning up cat poop with Spot Shot carpet cleaner and suddenly saw the dramatic potential for the warning labels on the can.

What about the world *right now* makes it feel important to be putting this show out into the world?
The world needs laughter and lightness, and some space to think about other things than what a jackass the president is.

How would you describe your show to your crush?
Household Items will make you wet your pants laughing.

If any famous person could see your show, who would you pick?
Weird Al.
