The Long-Awaited & Highly Anticipated VIDEO! - See My Standup!

I know you have all been dying to see it.

That’s why you have kept coming back these last couple of days.

Skimming through my drivel and commentary.

Thinking to yourself, “Shut it already! Just post the goods, you tease!”

Well, your patience and persistence has paid off.

I give you…..

The World Premiere Of The Video Of The Greatest Comedy Routine In The History Of Funny.



That is how I planned to write this post.

Right before I showed you all my awesome video.

The same video I promised to get for you.



Things don’t always go as planned.

Remember how I said I was really distracted by my nerves and forgot to get the good camera from my wife, or ask another comedian to film me? And how I almost forgot about the video entirely until my wife said something about it?

Remember how I said that you were only allowed to record from the comedians area, and that I passed my cell phone to my wife at the last minute, because it would be more discreet than her pulling out the big camera from the cheap seats (aka the land of no filming), and also because her phone is missing the camera button after one too many drops on the ground?

Remember?

Well, here’s what happened.

We did get video.

But not much.

See, my wife started filming when I was called to the stage. The picture and audio is really crappy because it’s a cellphone. AND it’s dark in the club. AND And because my wife got stuck sitting in the back.

You can see me go onstage.

You can kind of hear me bomb through my first couple of lines.

You hear a few laughs. AND you hear some chic sitting beside my wife say, “HEY, I have cancer!”, all whiny and complainy.

Then, right as I’m about to find my rhythm, you hear a deep voice say, “EXCUSE ME, MA’AM!”

And the screen goes black.

Yep.

My wife got busted.

They didn’t confiscate my phone, thankfully. But they did make her shut it down.

So basically, I have about 30 seconds of shitty quality video of me sucking an egg.

I was going to post it anyway, just so you could see with your own eyes that I at least made it onstage.

Unfortunately, since our desktop in currently busted, AND the Windows 7 on my laptop is being a total dick and won’t recognize my Samsung Mythic driver, I can’t upload the video.

However, if I ever manage to get it uploaded in the future, I promise I WILL share it.

Unless I delete it first.

Where are all those hidden cameras when you need them?

SurferWife said...

No worries. I already have a mental video in my head of you sucking an egg with really skinny biceps.

Dude, that's what you get when you trust anything technical to a woman. She shoulda stayed home and had a good hot supper upon your returned.

Whatever. I even came back to SEE if there really was a video. Snothead.

And Then Kate said...

Oh, GREAT. Use the old wife-was-busted excuse. Fool us once, shame on me. Fool us twice....eh, screw it. I'm getting confused, but I know I'm threatening your lack-of-videoness somewhere in this comment.

Patience is a virtue. I can wait.

You are such a tease.

WhisperingWriter said...

I wanna see the video, dangit.

Tiffany said...

what an awesome wife you have, taking one for the team.

and don't delete it--when you're famous you can look back at the egg sucking and laugh.

you can do that if you're not famous too but, let's just pretend you will be.
