Comedy Part 523: Hey Guys, I Did A Guest Set

Location:  Hey Guys Comedy
Emcee:  Greg McClintock
Feature:  Keith Cissell
Headliner:  Mark Sweeney

As it turned out, I attended all four weekend shows at Hey Guys Comedy in Fairview Heights...I was asked if I could do a guest set at the 8:00 show on Saturday.  I feel like I did a good job...I actually think I went under my time since I didn't see a one-minute cue.  Saturday featured two of the best-behaved bachelorette parties that I'd ever seen at comedy shows...generally those are really good for disrupting the proceedings.  At any rate, good times...going to the Colt Cabana/Marty DeRosa show at the Firebird tonight.  After that, open-mic at Hey Guys on Wednesday...woo.

Cruz connected with his third superkick of the match and covered Heath, but there was no referee to make the pin count. Big Daddy made an appearance at ringside, distracting Cruz and setting him up for a Double-R-J from Red River Jack...Hatton, unaware of the interference, revived and made the cover on Cruz as the referee recovered to make the three-count.
