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!


November 15, 2004: Return to the Cantab

I got a spot in this show somewhat unexpectedly — I’d emailed Amanda, who runs this particular yukfest from a bar

basement in Central Square in Cambridge — but hadn’t heard back in a few days. I assumed the show was booked; in November, they’d gone from a weekly format to monthly, so I figured the demand for stage time was getting up there, and I’d been shut out. Easy come, easy go.

But — yay! — that was not the case. A couple of days before the gig, Amanda emailed to say all conditions

were go. Bring out the rubber chickens; Houston, we have hilarity.

(Or, in my case, a few old retread bits that I wanted to glom together and try again. And that counts as

hilarity, dammit. That’s some of the funniest shit you’ll see in a Central Square basement on a Monday night, I’m

pretty sure of that.

Yeah, shaddup. So I set the bar low. Eat me.)

Anyway, the show was a lot of fun. I had a bit of a personal crisis, when my coworker told me that she’d be

there, and she was bringing her daughter with her. Yeeks! And never mind that her daughter is twenty-something, either — that’s fricking pressure, people!

(So, I took out the bit that ends with ‘vagina’, and replaced it with two minutes of stuff about… well, my

penis, actually. And I substituted it in just after the other stuff about my penis. Hrm. I guess I

wasn’t all that worried about offending ‘the daughter’, after all, eh? Nice.)

In any case, give it a look — I had a good time back at the Cantab, and hopefully, you’ll get a chuckle out of

it. Not as much fun as I had, especially hanging out and drinking beer with some of the other comics — and

yes, the coworker and her daughter, too! — but the rest of that isn’t on tape anywhere, so this is all

I can offer you. Let’s both hope that it’ll do, eh? Enjoy!
