This picture is the what my brain told me I felt like last night...on the inside.
Jason commented on the Comedians of Comedy show that we went to last night. I actually bought Jason’s ticket so it was like a date (Jason didn’t put out). I agree with Jason’s comments, with the exception of the “I think Brian Poshen isn’t funny.” I like his comedy. I think he’s funny. Jason is biased because Jason was raped by a “scary man” when he was little.
Anywho, the point behind my blog is that I felt a familiar feeling at last nights Comedians of Comedy show, and I’m going to blog about it. Yaaayyyy!! While some of your people (a.k.a. readers of this blog) might think DC is a shitty place for comedy, we have all witnessed some great comics get their start here. And that’s what I saw last night: I saw great comics in their element. And that’s what made me so nostalgic; I’ve felt the exact same way at local open mics, showcases, and club shows where I’ve watched my friends and I perform. It’s getting to watch something great. It’s getting to be in the right place, at the right time and be totally amazed at the magic someone creates with the curveballs their thrown (wow, that was an odd metaphor). I’ve been lucky enough to be friends with a lot of great comic, and I’ve seen them all crush (and bomb), and last night just reminded me of that. I don’t know why I felt so nostalgic last night, but it made me start thinking about all the kick ass comedy moments I’ve witness personally and then talked about on a smokey car ride home.
