Indy fuckin rocks pt 3: Memphis invades mortys comedy club

Bob &Tom show rocked my world, so after a nap the other reason I was in Indy was the Memphis comedy throw down. Dj Dangler an Indy comic puts together a monthly show where comics from other cities come in and basically showcase and or just have an excuse to drink. Once again thanks to Stan Chen Memphis was chosen for this month. Memphis has a lot of talented and potentially funny people which is amazing since there are no full time clubs in Memphis. The closet would be the funnybone in tunica ms at harrahs casino and that is really a casino gig with a club facade, it’s fun but it has it’s own vibe that a free standing club wouldn’t have by trying to fill a room from the casino junkets Tuesday thru Thursday. Anyway Memphis has a lot of talented people Richard Jones, Jane Haze, Brandon Sams, recent Transplant Amanda Barnes, Stan Chen, Katrina Murell, Kate Lucas, Louis Keller, the Kline brothers Mike and Steven and of course T.r Degraw and Kerry White. Both of the latter are former full time pros. Former Memphians Mary Jordan and Andy Fleming were also part of the showcase cause they are Memphis comics no matter where they might live now. We came we saw we kicked ass. Fellow headliner and the man who started me drinking tequila oh so many years ago Todd Yohn was also in the house just hangin. He didn’t do any time but was actually impressed at some of the newbies. He actually almost spit tequila while both Brandon and Mary were onstage. I was thought everyone did a great job. I closed the show and did what I normally do, which is verbally slap the shit out of those who need and and afterward had a nice talk with one of the owners about working there in the future which I great cause the other owner who actually books the club doesnt think I can headline. I told that to Todd and was given the best white boy red headed nigga please look ever. Hopefully I’ll eventually headline morty’s comedy club if not there is always the sinking ship. There still one more say of Indy left to blog about. I’ll do it later cause I just got home from doing 15 shows in 11 days. It’s cold and I need to sleep in my own bed tonight. More info to come soon.
