As if I needed another reason to root against the NY Knicks (besides the irritating Knick fan base and Melo and JR Smith’s bricklaying competition) tonight against the Indiana Pacers I now have one. In two days I will be recording my new stand up comedy album at Stage 72 in NYC. And the 9:00pm start time would go right up against the potential sixth game of the Knicks-Pacers series. This is bad for multiple reasons. One, it means the Knicks have won Game 5 and will have re-instilled an irrational belief in Knick fans that this is, once again, “their year.” Two, it means I will not be able to see the Knicks last game of the season. And three, people in NYC may be conflicted in deciding to watch an explosive 6’7″ guy who takes a lot of shots or Carmelo Anthony. But my message to Knick fans is this: you can see your team disappoint you every April/May, but this will probably be my last album for a long time, if not ever so get tickets and come to the show.
Tickets can be bought here – http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/367876 Please spread the word and come out for it. I promise you will not be disappointed. I cannot say the same for watching the Knicks. If you need some convincing this week’s episode of my podcast was a selection of great tracks from my first three albums. Enjoy!
