Comedy Sickness Taping, Montgomery Co. Cable, Sat 2004/12/04

There's a guy in the break room dressed like Abraham Lincoln. He looks like John Doe of X dressed as Abraham Lincoln. There's white bread and cold cuts and cheese. There's mayo in the fridge. I inspect it. I decline. These deals always have free cheap food so you can't claim you weren't compensated. There's an old resentful Jewish guy complaining about:

  • Blacks
  • why people don't get his jokes
  • why he doesn't get other people's jokes
  • yadda yadda yadda.

  • This guy buttonholes me to tell me his boring, pitiful story of resentment and blame and self-righteousness.
    Finally we start to tape. I do 10 minutes of standup. Abraham Lincoln and another old guy tell jokes behind a lectern. Clay Miles takes his shirt off and runs behind Abe while I yell, "It's Dred Scott! Git 'im!" Leonardo laughs. No one else gets the joke. Kill me.
