BLAKE HOGUE (Rapunzel’s Prince)

Blake knows you know he's writing about himself. So let's dump the disingenuous third-person crap. Hi. How are you today? I'm good. I ate this choice sandwich before getting to the theater so this should be a good one. I moved to LA last year from Minnesota to fulfill my new dream of being a D-List Non-Porn Internet Star. One short was featured on VH1's Best Week Ever and another I co-everythinged called Normal Town was E! The Soup's $25,000 Cyber Smack winner. My latest work is a social commentary on the plight of mother-nature's unstable condition. My Fish Have AIDS. Go ahead, YouTube it. And buy The Benchwarmers on DVD so my bit part might amount to $0.02 in residuals next year.  Finally, I dedicate my performance to myself so then if you don't like it, I don't feel so bad.
