It’s been quite a week. In addition to Uncle Lorne and the SNL folks coming to the show on Wednesday, they all stopped by before our Thursday show to meet us. They had to leave right away the night of our show, so they wanted to come say hi. I thought that was pretty nice. Then on Friday night, people from Comedy Central and The Daily Show watched our show. They came back to meet us afterwards, and then had the six of us come read for them the next morning. It went fine; this was my third time reading for them, and it always makes me appreciate my newscaster hair (see headshot).
All of us were doing our readings Saturday morning between 10:30 and 11:30; that may not seem early to most people, but after an 8:00 and an 11:00 show Friday night, and the decompressing that follows, it’s early. I took a 45-minute nap in the afternoon, but we were all crazy tired at the shows. I think it was not only because of having a long day, but also – and maybe moreso – because of the anxiety over the week’s visitors. We certainly had a few chuckles of our own during the shows, but we pulled through ok and were lucky enough to have four guests come by to play the set after our second show.
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. It’s weird this time of year to see the word “dads” without “and grads” after it.
