This weekend I did a fun reunion show with buddies/comedians past and present that I ran a show with for a couple of years in Hoboken, NJ. The show was fun, the crowd was good and my wallet was one $20 bill heavier after the show. We ran the show from 2006-2008 at Hoboken’s The Goldhawk and in the middle of what was a successful run (successful in comedy terms meaning fun shows, fun crowds, no loot) we were featured on the cover of a Hoboken free paper. Here is what we looked like then:
Now the joy you see on Josh’s face and arms is symbolic of the fact that he would be the first to bail on comedy. It should also be noted that my shirt is tucked in. Something I have not done in 4 years to hide my frame’s transformation from NBA starting small forward, to retired NFL long snapper with a taste for cookies.
Well this is us from Saturday night at our reunion show.
A fun night doing a show with some good people for some nice people. Why haven’t any of us made it yet you ask? Well, between the four of us our average age is 37 and our average facial hair is 11 year old Puerto Rican kid with a mustache (Jim’s barely there mustache and goatee = 11 year old mature Latino when divided by four). So at least we had fun and that is what it is all about according to all the younger comics with success tell me on Facebook.
