March 3, 2005: Slingin' Jokes at the Studio

I wouldn't count this as the best set I've done at the Studio, but it's at least the longest, to date, which is soemthing.

(And longer with permission, too -- a couple of comics had cancelled that night, so Rick gave us a bit of leeway to take some extra time. Which was much appreciated in my case, as I'm prepping for a long set in a couple of days. Actually, I wish I'd packed another minute or two of material in there. You always hate to leave stage time on the table.)

The crowd on this particular Thursday was smallish and a bit subdued -- though as a comic, you don't blame the crowd for that. Just a couple of weeks ago, on a Wednesday in the same room with a similar crowd, I watched DJ Hazzard pick that audience up, throw them on his back, and take them for a five-to-seven minute ride that they'll not soon forget. That's the kind of performance that teaches you that it's possible.

(Of course, it would have been more useful if I'd also learned how he did that... but I suppose you've got to learn one lesson at a time around here. Baby steps, I'm told. Baby steps.)

Anyway, I had a lot of fun on stage, as always, and did get a few laughs for my troubles. Of course, what I'll probably remember most from the night is the conversation we had afterwards, at the bar downstairs. My buddy Ken -- a non-comic 'civilian' came out to watch, and I'm afraid we may have jarred his perception of reality with our post-show shenanigans.

(All the details I'm really allowed to give can be found in this post. Check out the 'Thursday' section for more details that you really probably want.)

In any case, it's another clip for the archives, and another entertaining, exciting, surreal night at the Comedy Studio. Which is pretty much what I signed up for when I started this little hobby, so what's to complain about, eh? It sure as hell beats a night of American Idol and a TV dinner on the couch, I'll guarantee you that.
