IT IS IT Comedy Show at Pianos tonight.
I came for my super-star friend Elliott Kalan. I stay for a great set by Paul F Tompkins (after all these years of swooning over his three-piece suits and deadpan delivery on Best Week Ever, I finally see him in person without even realizing he’s on the bill) and the very tall, charming, man of a 1,000 expressions Pete Holmes (the most I have ever laughed for an end-of-the-show comedian). ...
Working as a receptionist this week! Ordinarily I wouldn’t be so excited about answering phones, but after such an extensive stretch of restless unemployment, I’m psyched to be an office again. Coffee stains, time-sheets, and dropped calls.. oh, how I’ve missed you.
