Situations improved all around for the show, as well as for me, personally, by 10 a.m. as daylight and new audience members both made renewed appearances inside the Comic Strip. Between Bernadette Pauley, Ruperto Vanderpool and Tommy Savitt, the energy of the crowd got back up to acceptable fun time levels. As did my own energy. Consider it a case of the-chicken-and-the-egg. Or maybe you just need to hit business hours for both comedians and audience to regain a mutually beneficial relationship. Then again, as I noted yesterday, this isn’t any ordinary comedy show, so the normal rules of comedian and audience do not necessarily apply. Then again again, the question is moot. We’re back on track, and ready to head for the final 11 hours.
