A Sigh of Relief

First, I want to thank everyone who came out for opening weekend of our show, Are You There God? It's Me, Satan. We had pretty good turn out, especially considering that Friday night was Halloween and Saturday night was Halloween Part II, the after-Costume Party. I'd particularly like to thank my Parents, who saw it twice, my girlfriend, who overcame intense moral objections, and my friends Jesse and Natalia who both came in from out of town.

The show is now up and running. People seemed to respond well to the show and we had a couple of big laughs, which is always nice. After months of rehearsing, it's easy for the writers, actors etc. to lose sight of the fact that your comedy show can actually be funny. Those first laughs are huge confidence builders. So now we can all sigh with relief comforted by the fact that somebody is going to laugh, so now all we have to do now is perform the damned thing.

Aaaah.

We have three more weekends, Friday and Saturday nights at 10:00 PM. You should come out and bring everyone you know.

yo -- i just checked out flights to see if maybe i could catch your show and get in a visit to chicago before it freezes over, but no dice in terms of nonstop flights or low prices... maybe you'll put some of the show on youtube for all your fans? let me know, i'm sure it's hilarious!
