I hope all of your new year is off to a great start. I've been a bit of a slacker on here as of late, but I just haven't been feeling very inspired lately. It's time to get my ass in gear, and start making things happen NOW! I know this, because a fortune cookie told me so!
I have been working my ass off at the ol sammitch shop lately, but have some other projects I'm currently Working on. For example, next Saturday, February 4th, I arranged a special screening of the original Night Of The Living Dead, in honor of the one and only George Romero. The father of the zombie film genre, and one of my inspirations!
THEN....THE VERY NEXT DAY MY NEW YORK GIANTS WILL WIN THE SUPERBOWL! LOTS OF PARTYING FEB 4TH AND 5TH...JOIN ME?
Later on in February, the 17th to be exact, the 3rd annual Olympic Peninsula Comedy Competition will take place here in little ol Port Townsend, WA. Ive been booking and promoting stand up comedy in this region for just about 5 years now, and have been running this event going on 3. This competition features 10 top comedians from the Northwest and beyond competing for cash and bookings, with our audience voting on the winner. This is a really fun show. The first to winners have gone on to some success in the region and beyond. I love putting this event together and meeting and Workin.g with these great comedians. We've become somewhat of a family. I really dig the comraderie in this biz.
The Emerald City Comicon is also almost here! 2 short months away. I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of the great guests and comic book artists and writers. Steve Niles! Nat Jones! Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore! It's a zombie book lovers dream! I got my books already together and ready to go get signed! I can't wait for the weekend of ECCC! If you're gonna be there, leave me a message. I always love meeting new friends!
Anyways, I'm kinda beat. Gotta rest up for work tomorrow. I will try and post a flyer for our Romero celebration this week. Be sure to follow www.olypencomedy.com to keep up on my latest comedy events. I'm thinking about starting to post funny videos and stuff on there too, so if ya come across anything worthwhile and HILARIOUS, let me know!
Goodnight...love you all...GO GIANTS!
