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!
