Last night I had one of my first “road gigs” out to Bremerton, Washington. I want to say first road gig as it was the most time spent in the car to do comedy. One and a half hours there and the same back. It went fast due to the comedy stylings of Patton Oswald and his “222″ album. If you’ve never heard it, you must check it out. I cried laughing at one point, and I don’t think I’ve done that in a long time. I digress.
Bremerton was a great gig, over at the Cloverleaf Bar & Grill. Its in the Kmart parking lot in Bremerton, wherever that is, I wasn’t driving. Headlining was the great Peter Grey, who will be headlining at Laugh’s Comedy Spot July 5th. I’ve never actually watched him do more than an open mic set, so it was great to watch him really stretch out and be hilarious. One the way home, we “talked shop” about the comedy scene in Seattle and the next steps for my career. I look forward to working with him and all the other Seattle greats in the coming months (ie, comedy greats, take me with you to gigs please).
I probably need a haircut, but until then, like the awesome entertainer that I am, I will continue to make it a part of my act until that happens. No big gigs on the horizon yet for any of my adoring fan, but I’ll be sure to let you know when that happens.
