Memphis, TN

Mayor Willie Herenton was recently elected again using the campaign slogan "Shake The Haters Off". I really wish I was making this up, but I am not. See here, here, here and here for proof. If you look closely at his bio, you might notice that he actually has earned a Ph.D. -- in Education -- from Southern Illinois University. Wow.

The shows at Comedy, TN were a lot of fun. It was nice working with Jeff Caldwell, too. You may have seen Jeff on The Late Show with David Letterman or The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Michael McCommon is a local photographer that was at one of the shows so he took a few pictures.

It was a good thing the University of Memphis basketball team won their Final Four game because people Saturday night were in a good mood. That makes doing comedy a little easier. What doesn't make doing comedy easier is knowing the University of Memphis has a Men's and Women's Rifle Squad. I guess nothing can surprise me in Memphis anymore.
