Whenever I have new blog, I am always very concerned as to where it ends up in the Google rankings. When typing "DC Comedy" into the Google search engine, this blog is currently the 192rd entry. We can do better than this DC! I know we are new but we are also the most impatient of all blogs about DC comedy.
However, with any amount of success there inevitably will be people left in your wake. Who now has to go through life in the embarrassing #193 position? Well that would be everybody's favorite comedic juggler, Rich Potter. So to help make his day a little less sad, we are going to tell the whole world what's up with Rich these days.
Rich has more than a few headshots on his website but I chose this one as my favorite because it's the only one where he's not holding any juggling equipment. Rich is given the daunting task of trying his best to portray the fact that he is a comedic juggler with only a smirk and a slight shoulder raise and I must say the man pulls it off expertly.
This ain't no average juggler here folks. Apparently Rich was once on Letterman! I know this because on his website he boasts a quote from Paul Shaffer detailing the brilliance of his performance. "Definitely," says Paul. I'm not sure if there was more to that quote or if it was just Paul's response when Rich asked if he could get him a cup of coffee but a quote like that doesn't lie folks. Definitely.
