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.
