So I'm sitting in the business center of the hotel I'm staying at attempting to do a little last minute research for my big night tomorrow. Before I can start, however, I need to blog. That makes perfect sense.
In any case, we flew into Austin yesterday afternoon and the temperature was a lovely 74 degrees. I guess it's been raining for the past 8 weeks so I'm here at a good time.
I caught a great midnight screening last night of a documentary called The Aristocrats. The aristocrats is an old vaudeville joke that has the same set up and the same punchline, but the meat of it is improvised. If you want to see a good version of it online, look for the South Park clip. This movie was created by Paul Provenza and Penn Gillette (sp?), and they interview a ton of great comedians to hear their telling of the joke, where they first heard it and what their interpretation of the classic joke is. It's hilarious. All comics should definitely check it out. They talk to George Carlin, Gilbert Godfrey, Dana Gould, Judy Gold, Paul Reiser, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Silverman and on and on. Anyway, it was very inspiring. And for people who appreciate it when comics push the boundaries, this is a must-see.
Today I'm gonna work on some material and then try and catch two more films tonight.
I'll probably take some pics for the moblog so check those out if you want.
Wow. This is a dull entry. Okay. I'm now really going to get going and work on some stuff.
