Had my first show I headlined. (By myself. In the past, I've co-headlined with Norm MacDonald). It was at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California. Jokoy opened for me. He was hilarious. Then it was my turn. Had them laughing for about forty minutes. Then, nothing. For about fifteen minutes, I did jokes that always get a laugh and they just stared at me. What's going on, I thought. I started to sweat. Keep going, I thought. I'm getting paid, I better finish the rest of my act. Suddenly, it occured to me the air conditioning was off. It felt like it was about 90 degrees up on stage. "Are you guys really hot?" I asked. "Yeah", came the answer, slow and dreary like. So, I went into the music portion of my show. And slowly, I got the audience back. Well, most of them, anyway. Afterward, one woman came backstage. I said, "I don't know why the audience stopped laughing". And said to me, "Well, you had the unfortunate experience of following someone who was hilarious". Hmmm.... Well, I guess the show wasn't a total loss. Thank God for Jokoy!!!
