...don't have no mercy.


I did my second gig at the Comedy Zone. It was a bit@h!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I doubled my emailing of the poster, as you guys might have noticed, and the CZ hit the street a bit harder, though I’m not convinced they couldn’t have done more.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anyway several folks from church showed and the little girl that attempted to sing has some folks show up and that was about it. It was like prying teeth to get a good laugh. I pulled a guy on stage that happened to be the signer’s dad and he was an ass. He does a stupid prat fall walking on stage and I knew we was going to be a jerk the whole time. I was right and let my vengeance be the fact that his daughter is a terrible singer.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The rest of the show was decent but the audience was still dead for the whole thing. Josh and I had a good bit at the end with the dueling banjo’s and a few improved things but it was tough.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Work update…
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I decided that it is again time to actively pursue what Scripps calls a “conflict of interest.” In placing my job on the line I recently met with another production house in town that’s doing some really good work and showed them some “writing samples.” I also took them a “sample” of a project for someone like NBC. Everything over two meetings has been received pretty well.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I was walking into work this morning gazing into a brilliant blue sky framed with trees I was praying for guidance and inspiration with my work and as I reached my desk a phone call was waiting on me
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I reached my desk today I had a message from the VP of Development of the same production house. They were curious about how far I’d taken the samples because he wanted to take my ideas into a development meeting and see what they could do with them.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If something works and a show goes into development I’ll get a handsome check based on a percentage of the licensing fee and I’ll have created myself a job at a new production house. At that moment the doors will swing wide.

Another one just went up. I really hope this works out. You should not be banned just because someone has hard felling about you. I can't wait to see the show...cause I know it's gonna see the light.

Mullins... worst thing you can do right now is let your company know you are working. Keep it secret. I have seen SO many people get fired on the spot for being honest with thier employers... stick it to them... keep the upper hand

The worst is to let them know I AM working, how do you figure?
