I’m practicing spot gratitude.
Today is the 12th anniversary of my first open mike. It was under the expert hosting of Kevin-Michael Moore at the Boiler Room in Portland, which is now a Starbucks.
Since then, I’ve been graciously given spots at lots of places by lots of people.
From backroom bars to club sets to road rooms, they’ve all given me the spots that shaped my inscrutable comic persona.
Several of these people are famous now. A few are dead. Some quit doing comedy. But I thank all of ’em.
