the stage " juice ", or buzz a performer gets , is simply the best feeling. weather it's 15,000 people or 8, it's so intoxicating. i like family friendly events outside, i can be my weirdo self . the kids think i'm some wacky science teacher on acid. the parents get a kick out of someone their age , ( or older ~ 55 ), being so nutty - the freedom they don't have in life..
saturday a fellow comic - Gerry Gobel and i went to "Soda - Fest" to entertain. what a fun and super positive event. some fundraisers are really great , some seem like big-biz scams... this was a Love Fest ... they had a cash raffle , the person who won , turned all the money right back into the charity.. they had a big ass TV as a prize, the winner gave it right back too , so they could raffle it off again. the organizers were so nice, very calm, and a pleasure to work with and meet .. even the sound man was ultra-friendly. i asked him to make me sound sexy, and wow ---
after our sets i got to talk about my cancer story with a few people.. talking about correct food is invigorating , and add on the supreme stage buzz from about 200 ppl, you could say , i was feeling really good.. & they fed us BBQ !! , ( not me ) , and treated us like movie stars. we got in the car feeling like kings...
and then , as comics , as soon as the doors shut we started ripping apart our shows , criticizing every part. comics think they can and should have always done better.... applause breaks , laughter, giggling, silence - all so powerful
i can't wait for Odom Fest in september, you will hear about that soon
