We didn’t let last night’s thunderstorm stop us from bringing the funny. The show started in a heartwarming way, with Umesh, the owner presenting a check to a family whose little girl is fighting cancer. She even took the mic and told a few jokes. She was so funny I may have to re-evaluate some life choices, but I didn’t have time to do that last night. I had a show to host.
Chris Kiley led us off followed by Nick Grinups, Buddy Schoen, and John Koppel. My very own comedy Mr. Miyagi, Kurt Zimmerman headlined. There were lots of laughs. I put up a solid 10 minute set and got some great feedback. One of the things I like the most about stand-up is the community. So far, everybody’s been really friendly. I said it before in a previous entry (Why Comedy?): Laughter brings people together. I think that’s a beautiful thing.
