My One Year Comedy Birthday

On my first comedy birthday, I hosted a comedy show where we had our first gonging and first on stage fight. Actually had punches thrown to the face of a comic on stage and to the heckler who rushed the stage. Thanks to the "Godfather of Greenville Comedy" for breaking it up. My one year birthday was swell and I have yet to be punched by a heckler.

Those were the highlights, I elaborate below.

The guy who was gonged off stage had on a shirt that read, "Got Wood?" and a Georgia hat. He had been talking to several comics on stage during most of the show. The comic performing after him, (who didn't know "got wood/Georgia hat" had been gonged off stage), said that he was confused by the shirt and asked him if he was gay. This set him off because he is crazy. The comic was getting at the idea of "who are you asking "got wood?" It must be other guys. "And a Georgia hat, you must be gay" states the comic. "Got Wood" declares, "Say that again, you know what you said!" "Say what" replies the comic, "That you're gay?" "Got Wood" says, "That's it!" throws off his hat and rushes 10 feet onto the stage truly surprising the comic. Nick Shaheen and others sprang into action and only a couple of hits landed. They did however land quite solidly on the face of both parties involved. None of that, glancing off the ear, girly flailing action. So, the guy was thrown out of the bar permanently. And, we laughed and retold the story many times... oh we laughed. I came home, got my pre-bedtime facebook fix and went to sleep. I awoke and jacked in, to receive my first morning hit of facebook and detailed the events of last evening. Then, I clicked "comment".

Cirkus performace

The Big Top Cabaret presented a fine variety show last evening. The event was hosted by Thee Inner Cirkus and emceed by my pal and fellow comic Charlie Grey. It was truly a memorable evening of splendid performances in a wide range of genres. Fire Dancing to live music which would make Danny Elfman proud. Belly Dancing, Glass Eating, Hula Hooping, Stand Up Comedy and Singers with tiny hats all came together to present Ground Zero with a truly memorable collaboration which I had never before been a part of. The audience was a treat as well with what I assume is the usual fare for the venue of very unique misfits in such numbers that the frat boys stand out as the extreme minority. (Which explains why they responded so well to a joke about being spanked.) Original performances of a diverse variety of art forms in the upstate is one of the things that I love about living in Greenville. I look forward to the next collaborative effort with Thee Inner Cirkus. Check out this link for more info and upcoming shows. http://www.innercirkus.com

So, this is it

I have a blog now. We'll see if I actually blog. It isn't likely. But I now have a website that perhaps I can use to direct people to and spew out my mental ramblings.
