Well the day finally came and went, and i got to see Jerry for the first time live. It was so freakin' amazing! This was my first comedy act i'd ever seen, and what a way to start. The opening act was none other than Maroon Golf himself, which was pretty cool. He was really funny.

Then out runs Jerry as if he was thrown there. The crowd went nuts and gave a standing O, which i'm sure is pretty customary for Jerry. He had a great set, he touched on such things like Cinnabon, cell phones, Raisin Bran, Life cereal, and of course Marriage, relationships, and children. Just the sound of his voice raising to that comedic pitch was enough to have me in hysterics. My face is sore from smiling. I had to stretch my face every 15 minutes.

I'm going to bed now, so this is just a quick recap, but all in all a great show. A little surprised there was no Q and A session (i saw everyone getting up to leave and i was wondering why), but an awesome show nonetheless. was your night?

Fun, huh, CJ? We saw him in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where Life cereal is made at Quaker Oats. He initiated that joke there and seems to released it permanently from the "vault".

Jimmy's always wondered... with all of these comedians flying around all year, don t you think there would be a plane crash? If you think about it... hundreds of cities, hundreds of shows... you'd think eventually, one would get wiped out.

Well CJ, when he entered they didn't give him a Standin O...well not on the ground where I WAS...hehehe. But I was up clapping.

It was my first show too. It's pretty funny, it's as funny as his old material. The joke that really really cracked me up was the Raison Brands one!

It was weird, cuz I didn't realize that I was actually there ""with"" Jerry Seinfeld. It felt like I was on tv...even thoug he was less than 30 feet away..but that's a small point!!! That "that's a small point" is a quote from his show he said something like: We make these events so people we don't feel like our life sucks, but it sucks. Every life sucks. So people, YOUR life SUCKS. My life sucks too...but of course it doesn't sucks as much as yours BUT THAT'S A SMALL POINT.

That one was one of the best. When I got out, i was like: ok, i saw jerry seinfeld. But the next morning, i got a step in reality, and REALIZE THAT I HAD SAW JERRY SEINFELD. And I couldn't believe it and I can't barely still believe it. I recorded maybe 20 mins of his act on a cell phone, but's its in a video format, we can hear not super clean but good enuff to understand 80% of it.

One last thing, if jerry is in your town and you never saw him live or in person, don't think about the money, even if it cost you 200$, it's REALLY REALLY worth it, TRUST ME.

And Cousin Jeffrey, about that comedic pitch I WAS SO PLEASE WITH THAT!!! Cuz in interviews, on the dvds, seinfeld sounded much more mature and talk with a deeper voice, so I though he was going to be delivering his material a different way. But on stage, he is exactly like in was on his first performance on The tonigh show or I'm Telling You For the Lastime.

I was at the second show, and they gave a standing O. I think you said last time that you were going to the first show.

Anyway, i agree his joke about Raisin Bran killed and so did his Cinnabon. I've actually had Cinnabon so i know what he's talking about. His bit about the cell phone running out of power was pretty funny, how he starts dying with the phone. Or even his bit about the orange juice tasting even more like freshly squeezed oranges. If it's that close, just SQUEEZE IT!!! (in his high-pitched voice).

It's amazing how the time flew by though, it felt like it lasted only a second. Then i looked at my watch and it was ten past eleven.

I definetely felt out of place a bit, because most of the people there were in there late 30's, wearing khakis and buttoned shirts. And in i come with jeans and a t-shirt. But whatever. I thoroughly enjoyed his show.

By the way, DRS, when he ended the show, did he say thank you, goodnight and then quickly run off the stage? He didn't give us a chance to really give him the kind of ovation that we're used to in Montreal. A standing ovation in montreal usually lasts a good 8 to 10 minutes. Just ask Saku Koivu or The Rocket (RIP).

Yeah i was at the 1rst, 1rst show people suck then! lol but people laugh, real nice ambiance. At one point people laughed and a women laugh after everybody and Jerry said: please follow with the group. That was a killer!

Well he went off fast, but came back made the classic joke about the standing o. "or we doing this now?" He ask us to ask him questions. I tried 3 times to ask: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT FRIENDS. But he didn't hear me, that's the ONLY low point to that show.

What's cinnabon? The joke was funny but i didn't know what it was though

Cinnabon is a glorified mall kiosk dedicated to helping spread diabetes blinding heart attacks via cinnamon rolls and pastries. Remember that Simpson's episode with that pulsating donut filled with butter and poison? That's Cinnabon.
On a grumpier note, why on earth do my hall of fame threads keep getting shut down?
I think I'm being blacklisted.

Ah, so he took Q & A for the 1st show. What kind of questions did he ask, drs?

I've only eaten one cinnabon, which I had on my way to San Francisco. We stopped at Chicago airport, and I bought a cinnabon. I could feel my arteries filling up with each bite. And my sweat had just a hint of grease in it. Tastes good though, just thank goodness it's not in Canada. Because I think only Americans can handle that stuff.

Well, Jackie, i guess i meant thank goodness there is only one in Quebec. As you know we are a "distinct society" and anyway, we have enough on our plate, what with poutine and all. But i like how you pointed out my inappropriate assumption. Makes me look stupid, and when you look stupid, you don't think, and when you don't think, that indifference to your surroundings -- it makes you attractive.
