Labor Day tribute show!
This was a fun one, a bunch of the usual
classic “Working Man’s” material but I also
bent the rules a bit and played a lot more
stand-up than usual.
It worked out that way because I realized that
the good stand-up comedians have put out a lot
of stuff pertaining to jobs, past and present,
and it was swamping the usual ratio of
music/stand-up/sketch comedy that I normally play.
The three essential Comedic Food Groups are still
represented, just in smaller numbers.
Which probably pleased the comedy purists out there,
I get a lot of requests to play more stand-up.
Brian Regan has a great piece, as does Michael Jr.
Ahmed Ahmed impresses the heck out of me, and Dana
Gould kills with his ode to jobs.
All in all it was a great show…
