Velocity Magazine in Louisville, KY

While performing last weekend in Louisville, KY at The Comedy Caravan, I happened to pick up this local print media. The Velocity is a free, weekly publication about current events in Louisville.

This particular issue happened to have a cover article about "hipster parents". The hilarious part came when I noticed the unrelated side article entitled "Oops, I Forgot to Save for Retirement" (see red arrow below). The best part is that it literally looks like it is a quote bubble coming out of Mr. Mohawk's mouth. Absolutely brilliant.

If you happen to work for The Velocity, take note that your efforts did not go unnoticed.

Louisville, KY

This week was rough because this was the first time in my comedy career that I have had to perform sick.

It all started after seeing Jim Carrey in The Number 23. The movie is about a guy that becomes obsessed with the number 23 and everything in his life adds up to 23. Sure, it sounds silly but it got a little creepy when I returned to my apartment and realized it was building 1013 (yes, 10 + 13 = 23) and the apartment was B3 (yes, B is the 2nd letter of the alphabet). That is when I got the flu for two days (yes, 2 days of the "flu" -- 3 letters).

Luckily, the staff at The Comedy Caravan in Louisville, KY is one of the best in the country and we were able to make it work.

Fort Campbell, KY

If you have never met a guy that goes by "Dirty", then you have obviously never visited Froggy's on Ft. Campbell, KY. The picture is of Dirty and comedians Laura Lou, Mike Green and me.
Ft. Campbell is the home of the 101st Airborne "Screaming Eagles". A special thanks to the two young Army soldiers that gave me a lift to buy a new car battery at Wal-Mart. But seriously, you can quit calling me "sir".

Huntsville, AL

After my show at The Station, I decided to take a day to visit The Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. I had always wanted to go to Space Camp as a kid, so now I got to visit as an adult. It is a great museum with many exhibits about the history of NASA's space travels. Outside the museum, there are placards for each planet in our solar system -- including Pluto!

One would think that NASA would be the first to know that Pluto was removed from the list of planets several months ago. I am sure there is a "take down Pluto sign" memo sitting in someone's inbox with some other important documents, like Lisa Nowak's termination papers.

Until then, Pluto lives on in Huntsville, AL.

Hattiesburg, MS

I performed in Hattiesburg, MS for the first time in my career. The show at The Bottle Company with J. Chris Newburg was fun until I made fun of Willie Nelson for not paying his taxes. Then I saw the billboards on the way home: BioWillie Premium Biodiesel gas stations.

The signs are even written in red, white and blue because nothing says "America" like someone who doesn't pay their taxes.
