Cheap Beer Helps Out McVeighs, & Comedy On The Curve Approacheth…

So, show number two was upon us and there’s already been a few changes since the first-night fundraiser (made over $120 on just door and donations from comedians and audience members alike for Second Harvest…thanks all!). Well, not that many. We’ve got new bar staff, the drink specials continue, and we’ve got comment cards that offer the chance to win a dinner for four at McVeigh’s. And the food is not bad at all. This is not your deep-fried cheese stick affair. They use words like “reduction” and “confit” from time to time. I too am shocked.

In filed the comics before the show, the room already set up. It’s a pleasant moment when you realize to yourself, “Hey, I don’t have to move furniture before I pull out my Facebook chunk”. Comics both on and not on the show filed in, took seats and took full advantage of what will probably prove to be the larger draw than my attempts at new material or my ability to polish the old stuff: $3.00 domestic bottles and bar rails. What keeps comics coming? A chance at stage time and cheap booze.
