The in-state pretour gigs have begun, and the first one was a smashing success!
Thank you to every one of the about 70 people who came out to Camp Fair Haven on Saturday evening, November 3. Thank you also to some of the ladies at camp who voluntarily provided food and drinks. Thank you also to Doug Nye, who performed admirably to open up the show and who helped me prepare the sound equipment.
Listen. This is going well. I’m very pleased.
I got so many comments that people had a great time and laughed a lot. Usually, it’s hard to gauge the crowd response onstage, but I heard lots of laughter, and that was kind of the goal, so I’m pleased.
We are already working on arranging another show there, probably for sometime in January. I’ve learned a no shortage of people that wanted to come to this one, but couldn’t. I think we can fill this place up in January.
A special thank you goes out to my family. My wife, Heather; son, Jordan and daughter, Emma all helped out during the day prior to the show and dealt with me being stressed out all day.
I’ve finally taken people’s advice and agreed that the strength of my performances is the song parodies. I marched out some new ones, my favorite of which is the The Columbus Day Song, my favorite line of which is a tongue-twister, but I was able to pull off without spraining my tongue.
There’s much more to say, but I’ll save it for other posts. Thanks for checking in.
Oh, and this. Do you know of a church that would like some funny, clean entertainment? It’s this easy:
1. It will cost the church NOTHING.
2. Admission is FREE.
All I ask for is the opportunity to make you laugh for about one hour, present what Spokes and Jokes is all about, then to make an appeal for donations.
That’s it. Please email me at chris@chrisQuimby.com to book your engagement before it’s too late. We’re leaving the state on September 2, 2013.
