Oh, the fun, the fun of it all

Hey, thanks to everyone who came out last night to Funny Ha-Ha 4Ever at the Hideout. A good time was had by most, and I surely appreciate everyone who had kind words for me. As to my performance itself, I have to say it was an unqualified success: unlike my last appearance at Funny Ha-Ha, you could hear me quite clearly because my reading was not drowned out by the sound of people laughing.

Unlike me, other performers did not bomb, including Mark Bazer (who slew with a bit about electric hand-dryers), James Finn Garner (whose humor writing I've admired for many years; it was an honor to meet him), and Steve Delahoyde, who always pretends that his hilarious movies aren't going to kill even though they always do. Co-host John Green, whose famous-last-words piece was terrific, is on his way to NYC this morning, and I'd wish him Godspeed if I believed in God or I still took speed.

Anyway, as always, praise due to Allah Claire Zulkey for doing the hardcore work of putting the thing together and being an extremely gracious host. I look forward to another year of Funny Ha-Ha, the best goddamn reading in Chicago, ever.
