Let me first say I
asked Charlotte for the first time how I should
approach this entry, and she said "just be honest" -
so whew. My amazing streak of frank, open, sincere
honesty continues. I'm just waiting for the day when I
feel forced to spin something for the betterment of my
career and I can't be comPLETEly truthful. What I
think I will do in these situations, is write the
entry and post a blank page and explain it's a piece
that will be put in later. In fact with some recent
events I could almost do that. Hmmm... Get ready for
some blank entries soon. So here we go.
The show was
awesome. The crowd reaction was outstanding, and the
owner of the club afterwards was so amazingly enamored
with it, I was blown away. The bad part
...my dick was
hanging out the whole time.
I'm so just
kidding. LOL. Just wanted to make sure you were payin'
attention. Man, bet I would get some crowd reaction
No one showed. All
of the RSVPs were no shows. I mean people
actually called the hotline, left messages about who
they were and how many in their party and then no one
showed up. Through voicemail and email, we had around
35 FOR SURE coming, and a few more that we
were pretty certain would be there....so expecting 50+
EASY. It just didn't happen.
Now it wasn't
actually empty. Charlotte's sister brought some
friends, and I had a few people from my apartment
complex come out, but as I've mentioned numerous times
before...these shows are for industry. Amazingly
though, for about 15 people, the laughing was
incredible. It was loud. Spencer saying cock still
gets screams... LOL. God love Spencer. I couldn't be
happier with how the show was, and how the reaction
was...but good GOD I felt bad for Charlotte. I know
she's pissed. I mean REALLY pissed. In essence,
it's somewhat of a wasted show. To get that industry
buzz rolling, SOMEBODY in the industry has to have
seen it. If it's just friends, that's cool and it'll
help keep an audience, but it won't create that "buzz"
I on the other
hand am not too worried, as the reaction is SO
overwhelming that I know it doesn't really matter.
Industry will be at the Comedy Store in 3 weeks no
matter what. The people that screwed us over tonight
will certainly get a nice "phone call" or visit
today from Charlotte and should feel a bit of "I owe
ya..." which is always nice. And the people that were
there were thoroughly excited. The whopper of course
being the owner Enns. Cool name man. "Some people
would rob their mother's for the Enns...."
First of all, Enns
is black. And acceptance from a black guy, to me, is
second only to sex. I don't get it, don't know where
it came from, don't know why I feel this way, but I
have always wanted to be considered anywhere NEAR as
cool as a black guy. I honestly believe that black
guys are the coolest people on the planet. They walk
cooler, talk cooler, sing cooler, look
cooler...COOLER. So when this guy comes up to me and
says: "I loved the part when G says: "I'm gonna
beat your BITCH ASS" and he mimics the black
slang that I USED...it's so flattering,
I can't even tell you. The fact that he said:
"You're gonna be a celebrity, you do realize that
don't you" is nice, and I could only reply with
"thank you"...but I was much more enamored that I
didn't offend him with G. In fact he thought G was a
cool guy. And the other black guys there felt the same
way. They loved G. That means, I actually pulled it
off. As G, I'm probably one of the few white guys on
the planet who could say "nigga" in a rap song, and no
one would budge. I of course DID NOT say
"nigga" in the rap song. LOL. There was one part
I had written it in... but I said "Man,
please..." instead of "nigga please...". I just didn't
see any reason to risk it.
course, I'm realizing that in the midst of
that rap I could easily have said it and
I bet 1/2 the people would never have
even budged. For that moment, I am a black
guy, rapping about killing Adam. In fact
I'm gonna throw up a full
of that part to show you what I'm talking
about. It's pretty cool.
Anyway, this guy
said he's owned many Comedy clubs...even The Laugh
Factory in Chicago, and was blown away. He said he
will get a bunch of industry at the Comedy Store on
the 12th. He couldn't stop talking about it. He shook
his head at my prospects. "It's just to unique to not
blow up here..." Basically saying, "get ready, I've
seen a lot of talent and you're head and shoulders
above the rest of the pack - your time is coming very
The night ended
with Jess, Charlotte and I goin' to Dennys. Same table
and booth where Charlotte first described what a
development deal was back in March. 7 months later,
she actually explained even more about
holding/development deals that I was incorrect about.
Apparently a FUCKload more money than
I originally thought. It's so inconceivable to me
really. But, I'm realizing really fast just how
quickly this is coming together. I mean, it's truly
down to weeks until I'll be able to write about
whether I make it to Aspen. The absolute foregone
conclusion to Charlotte, will soon be concluded by
mid-December. Amazing. Absolutely amazing.
"I'm so excited I
can barely sit still to keep a thought in my head. I
think it's the excitement only a free man can feel. A
free man at the start of a long journey. Whose
conclusion is uncertain..."
That's life. As
this 2 year "journey" starts to wind down...there will
be another one waiting. I will never be stagnant.
I will never rest on my laurels. I will always
strive to do it better than anyone else has ever
dreamed, and strive to do things no one has ever done.
Hallelujah. Holy Shit.
