Cut to early fall. I got a text from Keith Lowell Jensen. He was at a comedy show, and had to let me know about this fantastic young comedian he'd just seen. This comedian - Eric Mee - was blind. And due to that, Keith got the idea that he wanted to put a show together with the two of us.
Oh, destiny. How tasty you are.
So this Friday is the debut of the Comedians with Disabilities Act (my new title for the show that I liked better), and we're doing it at one of my favorite venues in town. The media blitz is in full swing, even though we're competing with Thanksgiving. The three of us did a radio interview together this morning on Capital Public Radio on their show "Insight", hosted by Jeffrey Callison. You can listen to that show here:
We close out the show, so our bit starts right at 39:00. This Friday, the day of the show, is the double TV/print whammy. First, Steve and Eric will be appearing to promote the show on Channel 31's Good Day Sacramento show (I won't be appearing because I just appeared on that show recently, and there's a rule about that), and the Sacramento Bee will be publishing a story on Eric that also plugs our CDA show. We're hoping that the saturation brings in some Black Friday shoppers who are tired of fighting the malls and would like a little comedy to brighten up their day.
And we would love to see YOU there! This should be a fantastic night of comedy, made more special (but the normal kind of "special") by the hosting of Keith Lowell Jensen. The show info is as follows:
