Two Performance Artists Wins Silver at 2015 IBPA Awards!

Hilarious dark comedy Two Performance Artists novel by Scotch Wichmann wins 2015 IBPA Best New Voice in FictionAlmost exactly one year since its debut, Two Performance Artists just tied for Silver in the Best New Voice category of the 2015 Independent Book Publishers Awards held in Austin, Texas last week, and copies are flying off the shelves! THANK YOU for this fantastic honor, IBPA! If you haven’t grabbed your copy yet, visit your local indie bookstore, or hit up Amazon! If you’d like a signed copy, we can make that happen, too—just drop me a line.

In other news, I’ve started work on a one-man show I hope to debut in galleries and fringe festivals in the near future, then maybe onto the road. It’s part performance art, part filmic, and very autobiographical, with surreal characters dredged from my unconscious, secrets of my day job as a computer hacker, conspiratorial theories, tales of ghosts, shamans, and more. That sounds like a lot, I know, and it is; I’m hoping to go meta with this in a kind of grand unifying theory of creatives, especially performance artists and their ilk. I’ve wanted to do a feature-length solo show forever, and cannot wait to unleash what’s been brewing.

Next: If you’re in the area of Ventura, California on May 1, 2015, come to the Namba Performing Arts Space for its 5x5x5 Show, where I’ll be unveiling a brand new performance art piece alongside famed performance artist John White, and many others. FREE! Located at 47 S. Oak St.

    In middle of the book and it’s funny as hell. Really, you must have a sick but beautiful mind to come up with these scenarios that Hank and Larry delve into. Genius, dude!

    Oh, and congrats on the award.

    I read this book and I liked it. It was original and funny. There has been no other book like it, ever; that takes balls. And I must say, I don’t know much of this stuff on this type of art, but I liked the characters and how they got into scrapes and then out of them. They were like two Forest Gumps – except they had higher IQ’s. The characters were outlandish and the story had some parts in it where one had to extend their suspension of disbelief a bit far, because one would most likely not believe that the fictional software company and law enforcement, in general, could be so schmucky as to let these two loveable goyim misfits get away with such a heist for so long. But in the end, it was a good shvitz of a read: whether taking a poop, eating a sandwich, or walking on my tread, the book kept me reading.

    I liked the weak guy’s wife. What’s his name, again? A real yenta type, that wife of his! – Always bitching and complaining at her weak husband, and then she schtoops the carpet salesman right in front of him. I laughed. It reminds me of Susie Green from Curb Your Enthusiasm. The girl friend of the strong one should have been in the book a bit more. Who doesn’t like a love interest in a story, heh? The more you you described her physically, the more my pecker rose. In the next book, put more of the love interest into the goyim pot.

    You did very good with this book. Really, it was very original and funny.

    Thanks, Jen–I’m so happy you liked it! Getting it made into a film would be a dream!

  5. Jen Hower Says:

    Congratulations, Scotch! I hope Hollywood is listening–it would make an incredible movie. One of the funniest books I’ve ever read.
