It’s funny how things work out. I went to the Improv last night to pick up my 1099 form. When I walked through the doors, I basically saw all of the dudes that I came up through the ranks with. Terry Jones, Bill Crawford, Jerry Wilson, T-robe and Aaron Klieber (and relative new-comers Ed Bailey and Holly Price). It’s practically impossible to get all of us in the same room so someone decided to take a picture. Good call. It was weird because I’m so proud of what everyone has been able to accomplish, but also a little sad that the days of us sitting in a dive bar, watching each other perform and laughing hysterically had become a little less frequent. These guys were important to me in my early days because they were good. Really good. And we all benefited from pushing each other.
It wasn’t just a gathering of comedians. In a way, it was like a little family reunion.
