October 06, 2004: Baby's First Road Trip

This was the first time I ventured outside the greater Boston area to perform. Another comic, Flynny, runs this show on Wednesday nights in Lowell, and I hooked up with him for a spot.

Actually, to be fair, my comic friend Daniella did most of the negotiation for stage time, and was cool enough to include me. And ride up with me to navigate the more-difficult-than-it-frigging-should-be directions to the brewery.

(Honestly, I've got an extra-wide broomstick that I'd love to shove way up MapQuest's collective ass. Have they ever given straightforward directions to anyone, anywhere? Ever?! Bastards.)

Anyway, the brewery was a nice enough place. Three floors, good beer, bar food -- my kind of place. The joint was a little bit dead that night -- maybe fifteen or twenty people came out to watch -- but there were a couple of groups of people up front who seemed into it, so I basically talked towards them while I was up there.

(And towards the end of my set, their food came, which distracted them pretty much completely from the next three or four comics. Standup hath no buzzkill worse than the loudest laughers getting food during the show. Ouchies.)

Still, it's a fairly young show, and I'd definitely go back. Especially now that I know the fricking way around Lowell, more or less. (Damn you, MapQuest! Damn you again!) As a matter of fact, I've already asked for another spot, so hopefully you'll see a similar clip in another few weeks. Now if I can only get the bar to close down the kitchen during my set, then we'll be talking. Woo-hah!
