I'm gonna start doing stand-up again next month. This is the closest I can come to a reason why: https://t.co/ygsT7czFNy
Working on my audition scene now. Just gotta lose some lbs. https://t.co/My475FIyz6
It was so perfectly on-the-nose. Tragic and hilarious. https://t.co/eKknw4Jpcb
"I was on THE GOOD WIFE! I WAS ON THE GOOOOAAAARRRGH!" -- you in three hours as the cops justifiably tase you https://t.co/7mGDu5B9Ky
Wish I could like this more. But it's 8:53 pm PST on a Saturday. We all know you're drunk Tweeting from a Pizza Hut. https://t.co/AkdMiqCeoe

COMEDIANS OF COMEDY SHOOTING DIARY: AN HOUR OF GRACE

@ 12:00 AM

   

I'm staying at maybe one of the most barebones, plastic-cups-and-rough-towels motels in Eugene, and yet they STILL have wireless internet that blankets the premises like the caramel murmurs of a Capri whore. I'm writing, photographing, and sending this from the "veranda" (three wrought-iron picnic tables near the second floor snack machines) an hour before tonight's show.

I've got my feet up on a bizarre lion's head fountain which serves no purpose except to fool me into thinking I'm making the most of the eastern Oregon "magic hour". I'm two pony shots into a bottle of single malt, 15 year-old Balvenie (in-cask date: August 18th, 1988—exactly ONE month after I started stand-up comedy) and almost finished with Gary Giddins' un-put-downable critical biography of Louis Armstrong.

I don't own any Armstrong records. I'm not a fan of jazz. But one chapter into this fucker, and I want to hear everything Dippermouth every recorded. I'm chasing the Balvenie with generic "Classic Selection" spring water.

Beauty and happiness can mug you in an Olive Garden restaurant, I'm starting to realize.
