Did you know: Two years ago today, GoDaddy.com (name-dropping!) approved my request to register the domain name, thecomicscomic.com. And we're still here! You. Me. The Internets. Comedy. We're all still here. Let's celebrate. Comedy blogging purist nerds may want to note that I've been documenting comedy scenes for several more than two years, with Web posts from New York, Boston, Phoenix and Seattle. But going it alone as a one-man comedy journalism band is and has been decidedly different, and I'd like to personally thank each and every one of you for clicking, reading, commenting, linking and otherwise contributing to the cause. Now what?
Well, for me, year three at The Comic's Comic is starting off with something I know we've all been waiting for: I'm going Hollywood! I landed in Los Angeles late last night, and for the next week, I'm going to be taking in as much of of the L.A. comedy scene as is possible for a man with a rental car and limited funds. If you're in L.A. and want me to see your show, or just want to see what I look like in real life, please say hi!
Right now, I'm in that part of Los Angeles better known as Echo Silverlake Park, or as my current hosts call it, Histo Flipto. Who are they? They're a couple of Blerds named Mike Bridenstine and Mike Holmes. They seem nice, even though but probably because they're from Iowa. So if you see them mentioned an unusual amount of times here in the next week, now you'll know why.
OK, Hollywood. I'm ready for my pitch meetings. Let's do this.
