The Mastermind Show with Curtis The Mentalist

The Alec Baldwin Shooting, The Time I Almost Killed Several Men, and Fall Festivals

October 24, 2021
Alec Baldwin fired a "prop gun" while on set of the film "Rust," and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza.  Many on social media and elsewhere are insisting that it is absolutely not his fault and that the blame lies on others in the production crew.  I talk about this from the perspective of an actor who has been on several movie sets involving the use of guns, and as an 8 year military veteran in a combat arms MOS with considerable gun safety training. 
I also share a deeply personal experience about the time I almost killed several of my fellow soldiers during a training exercise in Alaska, as well as a recent experience with a Fall Festival show and why I rarely book them anymore...BY CHOICE.
