First of all, we just hit 500 views! That's more friends than I have on Facebook. Today's shout out goes to my newest Facebook friend, Evan Papai. He made it out to We Ho for the show last night and that makes him awesome!
As TJ said in her last post, last night was the "big" show. She will tell you it sucked. I want to clarify... there were some elements of the show that left something to be desired, but TJ was NOT one of them! She rocked the unusually lame crowd and I had to try so hard to not laugh over the footage we got. Here is a breakdown:
- The show started with one of the hosts singing a love song dedicated to her recently deceased dog. (And not in an ironic way)
- There was not one but two groups of obscenely obnoxious audience members. Think Kardashian wannabes meets "Dazed and Confused".
- Sets got cut short, one comedian even bailed.
I could go on but I'm not trying to be offensive, I'm just trying to paint a picture. There were a lot of obstacles to overcome. I have even more respect for comics now seeing what can happen when the universe seems to be fighting you.
On the upside! We ripped the bandaid right off this thing. Last night was atypical and we learned from it. Plus, we got some footage, we made new friends, we went to Scottish Hooter's (I'm gonna let TJ tell you all about that one in her next post, she will do it more justice than I can). I truly believe that things are only gonna get better from here. I think TJ could use a little more convincing so send her good vibrations today.
So what's next? Our next shoot day will be later this week when TJ and I film a short video for our KICKSTARTER page. If you haven't heard of Kickstarter, it is a fund raising website for creative projects. Think of it as a virtual bake sale, but instead of pastries you get other cool shit for your donation (and maybe some pastries). This should be up within the week so keep checking back! I think I am more stressed out about being in front of the camera for this short video than I am about any other part of this process. So wish me lots of luck!!
