I flew to Philly on the day of my first show. Rule number one as a comic, try to avoid flying in on the day of the show, especially if you have a layover. Too many things can, and will go wrong, if you're scheduled to land only a few hours before your first show of the week. I can't imagine a worse way to start the week than to not showing up to your first show.
During my hour long layover in Dallas, I looked out the large terminal windows to see this:
I looked around the terminal, no one else seemed alarmed. I popped a Xanax and then went looking for cheap pork sliders.

It's that time again., Austin Texas. I'm recording at The Velveeta Room this Saturday- 04/13/2013, two shows at 9:30 and 11:30. Admission is 10 dollars. If you can't make it out this weekend, no worries, I will be posting the recording for free here on the website after the Moontower Festival.
The recording will represent most of the material I've developed at the open mics around Austin over the last few months. That may not sound like the best advertisement for a show, warmed-over, open-mic comedy, but for those of you that have ever been to an open mic, you know that's where the craziest shit happens. Those are the shows I have the most fun at. No pressure. No obligation to do well. And because of that, I tend to do better than at any other show. I'm hoping that by giving this recording away, I can escape the pressure of making it good, which should - as a consequence - make it that much better. Or it could be a flaming pile of pinworm shit. Whatever it is, you won't have to pay to hear it.
If you can't make it out, help me spread the word for the show. I'll be there regardless. Add me on Facebook or Twitter for future updates.
