Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!


April 01, 2004: Comedy Studio, Redux

Ah, back to where it all began. Full circles are nice, don’t you think?

Nearly six full months after getting my comedy start at the Studio, I was able to line up another gig there.

(Which says that I either did okay the first time, and the place is tough to get into… or that Rick, who runs the show, has a relatively short memory for these sorts of things. For my sake and his, I prefer to believe the former. You people can think whatever you like; I’m not the boss of you.)

Anyway, it was great to take the stage again at the Comedy Studio. Oh, wait, as long as I’m doing this, I should give it some link-pimpage, shouldn’t I? Let’s try that again. Ahem.

So, it was great to take the stage again at the Comedy Studio.

(Yeah, that’s better. Plus, this way, you can mosey over to the ‘Schedule’ section, and see for yourself that I was there. I know that some of you would otherwise believe that this is all some elaborate hoax, with me standing in my basement with a sign behind me and a tape-recorded laugh track.

Or, in my case, a tape-recorded mostly-silence track. Hey, shut up!)

All right, let’s talk about the show itself, then. This was a Thursday night gig, so the crowd wasn’t quite as large as I’ve seen it on the weekends, but there were still twenty or thirty people in attendance. And they were tough, but fair — reviewing the clip, I see that they didn’t respond much when I rambled on a bit, but they stuck with me and gave me love for the big punchlines. So that was good — they weren’t a bunch of crickets, but they didn’t just feed me pity laughs, either. My kind of people, that.

Hopefully, you folks will enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed performing it. And — unlike a few of the more recent clips — this one is largely filled with new material. There’s one bit that I worked in from the last show, but apart from that — all new. That’s what taking three weeks off from doing shows will get you. Now we’ll just have to see how well it went over, and whether Rick will let me up on stage again before the fall. Eek.
