Rochester, MN

I just performed two night at Goonie's Comedy Club in Rochester, MN. I didn't expect much because the first landmark on my drive into town was a corncob water tower. You don't get to see that everyday. If you live in Iowa, then just act like you don't see this everyday.

I had a great time and really enjoyed the people there. First-class treatment included staying at The Kahler Hotel. I have a good feeling there have been a few comedians kicked out of there. This is the city where the Mayo Clinic is located. That is pretty much what keeps this city on the map.

"The Point"

Have you ever wondered where the "Gateway to the Pineries" was? Steven's Point, WI. That's where. When visiting Steven's Point, Wisconsin (not that I highly recommend it), be sure to just refer to it as "The Point". It will help you blend in because you don't want to look like a tourist. Then again, wearing anything but jeans and a flannel shirt might make you stick out. It is hard to believe that a website lists Steven's Point as the sixth best place to live in America, just behind Tulsa, OK. What are they the gateway to?

Appleton, WI

It isn't the Fourth of July unless you are shooting off massive fireworks and the cops come. That is the rule in Appleton, WI. The other rule is to have mousetraps in every bar. Yes, that's a real mousetrap and yes, that is a real dead mouse.
