Getting a Head: Touring the World as a Giant Dancing Bear
Rated 5.00/5 based
on 1 reviews
If you aren’t crazy before you travel across the continent in a van, performing in packed theaters wearing a mascot costume of a famous cartoon character, you sure as hell will be afterwards. Daniel Falk invites you to join his descent into madness, and to meet the friends he made on his way down. More
If you're like most people, you've probably had to deal with the fact that, at some point in your life, you've found yourself dancing in front of thousands of screaming/puking/urinating children wearing nothing but a pair of gym shorts, an undershirt, and twenty pounds of bear costume.
If you're still struggling to come to terms with your years spent working in children's entertainment, then this is the book for you. If your spouse still wakes up screaming from nightmares where he falls off a stage and is swallowed by a horde of rabid four year-olds, and you feel powerless in helping him re-acclimate to non-animal costume wearing society, then this is the book for you. But most of all, if you want to spend some time laughing at someone else's poor life choices, then this is most certainly the book for you.
Join in Daniel Falk's descent into madness as he travel to exotic locales like the beautiful Paris, France and the even more beautiful-er Fort MacMurray (Sometimes called the Paris of Canada by no one, anywhere, ever). Live vicariously through his adventures as he dumpster dives in Marseilles and prepares three course meals in his hotel room with nothing at his disposal but a coffee maker, a multi-tool, and a sink full of ice. And finally, learn what it takes to get a head (a bear head, specifically) in the world of children's entertainment (spoiler: what it takes is a total lack of dignity).
