Re: Bridgetown Comedy Festival 2012
Where's everyone's posts about all the cool stuff they saw on Day One of BCF-2012?
Oh...that's right. Everyone is probably still asleep. (This impatience of mine is a symptom of skipping the afterparty...)
Well... I saw a few things.
Conspiracy Theory looked like it was going hilariously off-the-rails. Props to Ross Parsons for a great, loose but confident set over at the Mt. Tabor Lounge--it may be that we took him for granted in the years Ross lived in Seattle, but he seemed much more natural...and Hari Kondabolu agreed with me. In a hosting set over at the BOG, Matt Goldich reminded me that I probably should have snagged him for last year's Seattle competition when I had the chance...as he's smart and funny.
Beyond that, though, there's just the sheer joy of seeing so many people that you know but haven't seen in person in some time all in one place--quite the sensor overload...and I apologize in advance if I need any reminders of who people are...(as I know better than to feel bad about having to remind people who this stupid hair belongs to who may have forgotten.) Especially fun is getting to see how people who are experiencing Bridgetown for the first time are trying to make sense of it all. (And it is a very different animal than the first two years were...)
I miss not getting to perform...but I'm making the most of my industry status to see a bunch of great shows, find a bunch of new comedy favorites and catch up with a lot of great people.
Oh...and the late show at the BOG was so full that people could not come in until others had left...and when I decided to leave, I made enough room for Janeane Garofalo to come in (Janeane and I have met before...and I have pictures of us together from a previous Bridgetown, but I'm under no illusion that she actually remembered me...just that I was some weird looking huge dude who was unreasonably pleased to be the reason that she got to do what she wanted...)
(Oh, and let's be very honest...I didn't just make enough room for Janeane...I made room for a dozen Janeanes.)
Today...I'm looking forward to video games, Comedy Film Nerds (though I'd also like to see Roast the Week at Helium), some shows at the Bagdad...before making hard late night decision: will it be Persona! or Best of Chicago...or the Young Guns show at the Eagles...or should I support my fellow PNWers with either The Entertainment Show or Funny over Everything?

Reason: an of should have been an or
We'll just take the fact that this was too long and that you didn't read it...as read.
