Well, folks, like it or not, it’s time for another installment of ‘Watch Charlie Make an Ass of Himself Onstage!‘
This is part two in a series, and one that I hope enjoys a long run. For those of you new to the game, what I’m talking about is my burgeoning standup comedy ‘career’.
(Or ‘pathetic hobby’, or ‘unhealthy obsession’, take your pick.)
Anyway, since this blog is all about the comedy, and since most of my onstage material is in here in some form or another, I thought that my dear trio of readers might appreciate seeing the standup routines, as well. Plus, it lets them replace that strikingly handsome face and deep, husky voice that I’m sure they imagined for me with… well, with my ugly mug and squeaky whine. Why the hell am I doing this, again, precisely?
Anyway, I finally figured out how to get my second show, from this past Wednesday, online. (If you missed the first show, then go check it out. And for anyone waiting these three long days for the second show, I apologize for the delay. My wife had a great idea on the night of the show; namely, to shoot the film in ‘portrait’, rather than ‘landscape’, format, the better to pick up anything wacky or outrageous that I might do with my hands.
(Hey, we’re married — she’s well aware that I often do wacky and outrageous things with my hands, if you know what I’m slingin’, here. Mostly, they happen in the privacy of our house — even our bedroom, sometimes — but who knows when something’s gonna spontaneously break out while I’m at the mike? And wouldn’t it be a shame to miss it?)
Unfortunately, my video capture software wasn’t on board with the whole ‘camera-turny‘ thing, and so I ended up sideways, listing rather completely to the right. So, it took me a while to download a bunch of software, and video editors, and format converter doohickeys, until finally, mercifully, I ended up with what I wanted.
(Well, maybe not what I wanted, but the best I could have hoped for. It’s not like all that digital manipulation made the thing any funnier.)
Anyway, go check it out. And if you missed the link above, there’s a permalink on the sidebar to the left. Which is my right, of course, as I peek out at you through your monitor screen.
(Speaking of which, don’t you think you should clean off that desk? What, are you growing potatoes in there? And do you really wear that shirt in public, in front of people? Tsk.)
So, there you have it. Another chance to laugh with me, or at me, or about me — whatever. Just so long as you laugh. I’ll be back later today with a real post, to try and keep the yuks coming. See you then!Permalink | 2 Comments
