I would appreciate some help with achieving the following effect:
During a story, the audience sees my face awash with the cold, bluish, flickering light of a television. At a desired point in the narrative, the light on my face changes to the warm-colored, wavering illumination of a fireplace or bonfire.

I could, of course, sit behind a concealed television monitor and switch from one DVD track to another. However, I would prefer something less obvious. The effect must be self generated and self contained, i.e. something I can bring with me without relying on theatrical lighting that's part of the performance venue.

Suggestions would be most appreciated. I may also take the question to the F/X forum, but I am hoping that the bizarrists will have a typically clever solution (or five).

The first thing that comes to mind is a color wheel on a light, but without a bit more infromation on how close you will be to folks, power source, brightness and all, it is hard to say if the idea of a portable (from flashlight sized up) light with a split color filter would suit yoru needs.
