Just a quick question

Jerry's doing 2 shows in Montreal. Probably a stupid question, but will he do a question-answer for both shows? Or is that just a late-show bonus? And i doubt i'll even have a chance to ask one, but if i can, are there any suggestions as to what i should ask him?

I've noticed that if you post immediately after you put up a thread, it appears a lot quicker on the thread page. Smile

Is it just Jimmy, or does this site seem to be moving very quickly lately. Jimmy just upgraded to OS X Tiger, and is now using the Safari browser... so maybe that's part of it. or maybe Stan did something, or maybe Jimmy's imagining it all.

Sorry Jeffrey. Have no idea about Jerry's shows.

Well, I went to his earlier show, and he did a Q&A. I don't know if he did one afterwards, but i'd assume he does it after every show.

Would you believe that I have the option of going to either show? I already told you i was going to the early show. But my friend also has tickets to the late show. My dilemma is that the early show has better seats.
I think i'll end up taking the better seats, because I just have trouble believing that the late show can be so much better that it's worth taking worse seats.

CJ, my experience with comedy shows (oh, yes the comedy - he's a veddy funny man), is that the later shows are preferable because the comc is usually "looser" the second time or has detected material that doesn't "fly" at a particular locale. Sound quality should be the same and there is really not that much to SEE, where seating would make a difference (unless you're seeing a flared-nostrilled prop comic). After a long run of performances, it probably makes little difference, either, with the jokes having been previously tested and all. And, since Jerry, to my knowledge, is not a big drinker (but can still hold his own with any bastards), there is not the fear he'll be sloshed by the end of the night. Bet you could go either way and be happy. I saw him awhile back and it was a fun time for all.

If you get a chance, I'd like to know if he's ever viewed this site.

OK, for what it's worth (nothing), I saw Jerry in Cedar Rapids, Iowa awhile back. There was just the one show there (imagine!), but he took questions for about 20 minutes. Maybe six Q's. A couple he went into some material as a result of the Q.

In Cedar Rapids, there is a Quaker Oats plant where they make "Life" cereal (among other healthy items like "Cap'n Crunch"). Jerry mused about how the name "Life" came about. Paraphrasing - "We need a name for our new cereal. Ooo, this is such an important cereal, we have to come up with a name that does it justice. Wheatios? No. Toasted Crunchies? No. Life? Yes, that's it. The name "Life" is just the kind of name this cereal deserves."

Oy! I did a poor job of paraphrasing because there was nothing funny about that. It was at the time, though.... Wink

Don't be knocking Cap'n Crunch. Jimmy's horse, Dusty, loves the stuff.

He has Jackie. Remember awhile ago in the actual blog, there was that huge yellow thing. Some guy met him at a smaller comedy club, he was just sitting in the back, and the guy went up to him. he asked him if he had even been here, and Jerry said yes. Then when the guy was leaving, Jerry said "Say hi to Stan for me."


I have impeccable memory.

Edit----

It's still there, go to the main site, and scroll just about to the bottom. It's there, and it's still yellow.

VL, I remember that, too, but chalked it up to the assumption that the guy went to the George Costanza School of Fable Telling.

I've seen Jerry perform live 4 times, and this month I saw twice, once at the first show of the night and once at the last show.

He did a Q&A for all 4 shows. Sometimes it's super funny, depending on the crowd and what they shout out at him. Other times it's ruined by a fan that rushes the stage and demands a signature (this happened at the last show I saw).

But the best for me was that someone asked him to do "Hello...Newman," and he set it up really nicely and busted it out. Hysterical!

Thanks for the input.

This is not a Metallica concert, it's a comedy act, alright? A little dignity... a little class...

Haha, I know, right?! Jerry made fun of her, and the whole crowd was booing, but she wouldn't let it go. So he finally signed her business card for her or whatever, and that ended the Q&A.

He was like, "I hope you realize your selfishness just ruined this for everyone else."

Originally it went like this:
Jerry: "You can just meet me after the show. I'm a little busy right now."
Rude Lady: "I won't see you after."
Jerry: "That's right, you WON'T."
(people laughing)

I was even going to ask him for 20 bucks. I guess i won't though.

"What is Larry David's problem?" how about that?

Well, this type of thing is very common when you're in show business...

They've asked him about Larry, and his responses were "we're friends" and "I DID appear on his show." (Such cop-out answers!)

What's the story with those two, anyway?

If it were me, I'd go to the later show. Why? Because after the second show, there are no more shows. If I went to the first show, it'd be great and what not, but then afterward, I'd be like, damn, I wish I had opted for the second show, because if I had, I'd get to see Jerry right now. Delay gratification. I wouldn't be able to live with myself, during the drive home, knowing that Jerry was onstage and I could be watching him perform.

Then again, I'm sick.
