Lucky Number 13

So, tonight was my 13th show. My friends Cathy, Dawn, Dawn's friend, Lynn and Marie came out to support me. Also, it was the Emerson Comedy Stand-up class. Oh, and, CBS The Morning show was there to tape a couple of Emerson kids. CBS-Network-National morning show. ... on the TV. So, really . . no pressure.
I had planned on doing some new stuff, but Rick needed all of us to stay to our time. I was going to stay to my time, dad gum it !!!! I did the new stuff, it got a good enough response to warrant another attempt at it. My friend who inspired the "Suicide Buffet" piece was there. I was concerned she might be insulted, it's not mean and she inspired it. She was fine with it. It went well. I did 5:50... it helped that I kept to my time. The room was really overlit for the camera crew. I love being in a room with mama-jamma camera equipment, but I got a little thrown by the bright lights.
Amanda Beals stopped by and she graciously covered the door for me while I was on stage. I got off stage and then went to the desk. I wish I had know that there would be a camera crew there, I would have worn the jacket instead of the sweater. I am saving the jacket for tomorrow night. It feels good and it looks presentable. I was able to hear the Emerson comics , but it was so crowded, I couldn't see the stage or the monitors from where I was sitting. Seriously, I can't remember the last time I saw it standing room only on a Wed. night. Dan Sally did a great set as well. I have great hopes for him.
Then we ushered the kids out and we folded up the chairs and put 'em against the walls. Max Goldberg helped with the task. I had a chance to speak with Mike Bent about comedy things and sketches and stuff like that there. Then I hung out with Rick downstairs after the show and talked about comedy things -theories and history. Brian Gordon and his girlfriend stopped by. It was nice to see them. I am glad I was able to hang out , but I am going to be dead meat at work tomorrow. My eyeballs are already squeaky. . . . .
What a freakin' month to be Comic in Residence ! I can't believe the coverage that has been happening. I couldn't possible contrive , in my wildest dreams, being in the room for any of these things. Unbelieveable.. . . . . .
