Happy Memorial Day, Everyone!

Thank you to all the life riskers!

Yesterday I ran the "Boston's Run to Remember" half marathon. It was my 3rd year in a row doing this particular race. I almost chickened out and didn't run this year when I was saw that it was raining when I woke up in the morning. Oddly(or not odd at all), the reason I didn't back out was because when driving over Tobin bridge and paying the toll, the toll operator saw that I was wearing a running number and said,

Hey, good luck in the race!

It made me feel obligated to do it then. I thought,

I have to now!  The toll booth operator wished me luck. She'll be horribly disappointed if I don't go through with this. How will I explain it to her(even though I won't have to explain to her since we don't even know each other's name and will never cross paths again)?!

So I went through with it and ran it and am glad I did.

Here's a quick clip of my stand-up from about a month ago:

Give it a watch.
I actually like this clip.

I remember before I had started doing stand-up I always thought it would be cool to do it and be able to do it in a conversational style. Which I thought would be VERY hard and it was hard. At least hard for me. So I think back then this is how I would have wanted my stand-up to be.

If I can dig it up, the next clip I will try to post is a quick segment from the first demo tape I ever made. It was taped in Los Angeles(back in 2000) at a venue called "Luna Park"(I'm not sure if that place still exists).
The best part of that tape actually wasn't even my was when i got a complimentary "heckle" from a woman in the audience. She yelled,
You make me laugh! at me.
The nerve!
She must have been really drunk.

I guess now that I told you what happened there's no need to post a clip of it...
