I like de TM. His wife may know your wife, somehow!

He needs to blog more, to ride more to lose weight, & to write more comedy to make us laugh. On 3rd, thought, it looks like he doesn't have to do a thing 2 make us laugh!

That's the gossip i hear out on de street anyway.

Funny stuff! I love stand-up. My first professional acting job was at The Second City in Chicago in the early 1980s. Improv comedy. I had others onstage to catch me when I fell! I knew a few stand-ups then. I've always admired anyone who could get out there alone.

Such a cruel business. The wrong crowd can totally ruin a great set. A comic can bomb in one environment and do amazing the next night doing the same material to different people. So weird.

Petrea said...

That's true of any kind of live performance. There's a kind of crowd mentality thing. No matter what show you're doing, your chemistry with the audience can differ from night to night. It's not the fault of the audience or of the performer. (Well, it can be...) But weather, mood, alcohol, traffic, or just the energy in the room can be the cause.

speaking of which, we really need to come see your show soon!
