Jill and I went along with Jef and Shelley to a "comedy show" last night. I had decided sometime like 15 years ago, despite my friend Jon Young comedianing for years in London, that live comedy and I would not live in the same universe. Well, this was pretty good. Time to rethink my categories.

We saw aziz ansari at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre, and a sketch comedy group called Hammerkat was there, too.


  1. I think that Hoffdaddy's statement of "this was pretty good," does not evoke his actual response, which often took the form of slapping his knee in mid guffaw. I might add, that short of old men sitting on the porch in Hollywood movies circa 1961, I had never witnessed someone slapping their knees in response to a comedic endeavor. Old Man Hoffdog never ceases to amaze.

  2. True. When I'm laughing so strongly, it's hard for me to breath, and slapping my knees helps increase the air intake in my legs, which leads to more oxygen in my heart and blood.
