Firstly, let me get this out of the way. I’ve gotten myself into another little contest. You can vote for me on Bite.ca by clicking HERE and I’d appreciate it if you did. But now a little bit on how I got myself into this “I’d Like You To Vote For Me” mess again.
Firstly, you may or may not of heard already that I didn’t make the cut for Jason Blanchard show “Stand-up and BITE me”, being broadcast on upstart television station, BITE-TV. Apparently my demo that I sent in could have been better. Don’t know if it was just the quality of the DVD or the crapulence of the jokes on them, but there we are. I was not wanted on the voyage. Next thing I know, while trying to record the podcast episode with comic Joy Acharjee (Episode 77 of the podcast due out tomorrow), my phone wouldn’t stop buzzing in my pocket. Turned out Jason was frantically trying to get hold of me to say that because Yuk-Yuk’s comics had been banned from the contest, there were openings. Which meant that I was able to perform. That Friday. Oh that would be the next day then. Must remember to send Mark Breslin a fruit basket to thank him.
