OBSRVTNS: June 20th, 2016
Greetings Syrenauts! I'm off the ball. I just got back from NYC where I did a bunch of shows and managed to get up at The Stand which is one of my favorite comedy clubs in New York. Shit was fun. Then I went down to North Carolina and got to visit the site of the Lost Colony, which as a history buff was an amazing experience. Some place just have a powerful feeling when you're in them, they carry a kind of energy and you carry your own energy to them.
I landed in LA and had to immediately go to host Cobra Juice the variety show I do monthly out of the Steve Allen Theater. The show went amazing and Kyle Kinane read my email for a bit. If you're in the L.A. area you should definitely come check out the shows. The next one is July 23rd. Guy Branum is headlining and Louis Virtel is reading my fanmail.
I also headlined in the Belly Room at the comedy store. It was my first time doing a 20 minute set and it went really well. I was competing with a sports game on the television and Father's Day, so the place was empty, but I was able to really work out the set. I was happy.
I was going to take a moment off and get to the other business that needs to be gotten to....Richard Avery is retiring and I'm finding a new home for my site. The podcast is going to be recorded out of the Comedy Store in the future and it's going to be just me flying solo with my guests, but every bird has to leave the nest eventually.
This week's guest on OBSERVATIONS with Sovereign Syre is Louis Virtel. Louis is a writer and pop culture commentator all over the web. I met him when I was doing the live storytelling show RISK! this last Saturday. He told an amazing story about a gay orgy and I just had to have him on.
