| Three Show Day Penn - 1/28/01
We had our first 3 show
Saturday in years. One, Five, and Nine. Krasher figured we
couldn't sell a show on Superbowl night, but we could do
very well the day before. That was the plan, and it worked,
all three shows were sold out. But that meant a day of over
45 minutes in the Barrel. Very odd. But, man, I did
everything right, I slept really well and I even had room
service breakfast. Between shows I sat with my legs
straight out and my feet up. I did everything I could.
It was bad. Robbie got really loopy after the first show,
and did the first part of the second show as Don Corlioni.
It's odd to be handed props by a man with cheeks full of
tissue paper. I was also a little loopy. There's a secret
part of the show where I forgot to do something fairly
important. Robbie was off stage signaling to me. He was
flashing a flashlight, pointing, and gesturing. I was
thinking, "I don't know what joke Robbie's doing, but we
have to talk about this. Because what if he were really
trying to tell me something, I would think it was just a
joke, like this. I wonder what joke he's doing. But, this
could be a boy who cried wolf situation. Hmmm, we'll have
to talk about this." I did that for the whole bit and never
figured out that I was dropping the ball. But, we already
know I'm the stupidest sober Atheist on the planet.
So, we were at the theater 12 hours (the crew longer), and
just did shows. I didn't see outside for a second. The
last Rubber Boy was tough, but I did fine. I got back to
the room, propped my feet up and just rested. Now, it's
just one show on SuperBowl Sunday.
