1 Giant Leap changed a lot of things for me in 2002, and they're now working on a second one. This is the trailer:
I can not wait for this. These guys are incredible.
I'm excited. I'll be in Portland August 16-20. I'll be doing an improv show with my friend Nate Smith from college on Saturday the 18th at the ComedySports in Portland at 10:30.
I took the Fung Wah up to Boston and back this weekend. I should have some pictures to post later. One curious part of the bus ride was the amount of people with recent tracheotomies. One on the ride up, and one on the ride down. The one on the ride down, a small Chinese lady, was still holding a bandage to her throat with her hand. The one on the ride up, a Jamaican lady with dreads, hid hers behind a thin, colorful scarf.
I just overheard a conversation in my elevator that I'm pretty sure I heard wrong, but only certain parts wrong.
Here's what I heard.
"I was at the airport until 3 waiting for my nephews flight."
"Yeah. They kept pushing it back an hour each hour."
"Where was he coming from?"
"Hammy. But they routed him through Damuse."
Shows I'm in? Longform improv?
