The Dishwasher.

Brian Feldman’s first-ever job was as an actor with Orlando Shakespeare Theater. His second was as a dishwasher at a fast-food restaurant chain in Winter Springs.

Award-winning performance artist Brian Feldman brought his one-of-a-kind “Dishwasher” performance back to Orange County.

This performance, which I sketched, was at Flying Horse Editions (500 W. Livingston Street,
Orlando, FL 32801)
at the downtown UCF Center of Emerging Media building across from the future site of the Creative Village

Brian hand-washed the dirty dishes in the print shop's sink using the hottest water he could endure. A friend of Brian stood behind him to keep a close eye on his dish washing techniques. 

Once completed, he was given a monologue by Sarah Segal which he cold read on the spot for the small audience gathered at the print shop. Finally, Brian asked a simple question of the audience: “Am I a better actor or dishwasher?” After receiving the answer, he posted the verdict on social media. His friends were rather harsh on his performance saying be was a better dishwasher, but everyone else in the audience decided he was a better actor. 

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
