Hey, all — I know it’s last-minute, but I thought (thanks to gentle prodding and encouragement from Amber of Learn to Speak Ebenese) that I’d post the details of my upcoming comedy debut. Upcoming, as in… well, tonight.
(Hey, I said it was ‘last-minute’. I’m not screwing around here.)
Anyway, for those of you in the Boston area who are interested in a little Sunday-night hilarity, here’s the scoop:
At 8pm tonight, eight of us comic newbies are going to strut our stuff — and wave our rubber chickens — onstage at the Comedy Studio, located at 1532 Massachusetts Avenue in Harvard Square, Cambridge (on the third floor, above the Hong Kong restaurant). We each get a five-minute set, and I think there are a couple of ‘pros’ on the menu, as well.
(That’s ‘pro’ as in ‘more seasoned comedian’, by the way, not ‘hooker’. I’m not saying that there won’t be hookers there, necessarily; I just don’t think they’ll be on stage. But I’ve been wrong before — Harvard Square can be pretty liberal about such things, you know.)
Anyway, if you’ve got a couple of hours to spare, and want to see me — and seven of my new friends — make complete asses of ourselves on stage, then be sure to stop by. The doors open at 7:30; I recommend for your sake that you get there early. And for my sake, I recommend that you start ordering the scorpion bowls as soon as you get in the door. There’s no better comedy audience than a liquored-up comedy audience.
So, that’s my announcement. I’ll be back later with your regularly-scheduled drivel for the day. Assuming I’m not buried under a stinking mound of rotting fruit and eggs onstage, that is. If it goes that badly, I might just curl up with a scorpion bowl myself, and take a night off. I know when I’m not wanted. Wish me luck!Permalink | 2 Comments
