Like An Enema. Only Not.

Mr. W and I went with another couple to see Kevin Pollak at The Comic Strip on Friday night. I almost did a spit-take when I heard about it on the radio. I mean, this guy really doesn't have to be grinding it out in a bloody club in Edmonton anymore, does he? He has a career in da movies and what all...it was $30, which is steep for a night of comedy around here, but since Mr. W worships Kevin Pollak, we had to go.

My face STILL hurts from laughing so hard. I had a tiny moment of being starstruck at the beginning, but fortunately I'm not prone to that shit and I got over it. I had a pretty good day today, because laughing that hard for that long cleans your brain out, I think. It was the best time I've had in a comedy club ever, and we were about six feet from the stage, which is always great. You don't want to sit RIGHT up front unless you're a masochist, but as close as possible is good because you avoid the people who paid $30 to come have a full-volume chat on their cell phones.

Anyway, it was fucking hilarious and worth every penny, so if you ever get a chance to see Mr. Pollak live, do go.
