It's the bloody travel! I'm old enough to remember when travel, especially air travel was an exhilarating adventure, not a tedious chore at best. At worst, it's just hideous.

pre-show Meet and Greet and Q&A
Basic driving rule: if you're not going at least 10mph over the speed limit, stay the hell out of the passing lane! There: I said it and I feel better....
Okay. Back to Nashville!
After a busy but refreshing time in Chicago and Ottawa, Illinois, I was braced and ready for the next leg of the Wild and Willey Comedy Tour 2011. Nashville is a town for which I've felt an affinity for a long time. Too often I'm in a town for too short a time to really enjoy it. This was the case in Nashville.
In past trips, I've seen the Grand Ol' Opry, Ernest Tubbs' store, heard the kick-ass music spilling out of the bars (only to find myself inside a few of them, lured by the music, don'tcha know?), but this trip I had other things on my mind: namely, the shoot in Jackson, TN that was looming in the very near future. It was to be the first DVD I've done of my comedy act since Hector was a pup (and he's a big dog now!) and I wanted everything right. I worried about content and the audience response, about working with a crew I don't know. I wrote and refined new material. I was content to just hang out in my room.

Anyway, I looked out the window of my room and nashville beckoned. I've had some good food in N'ville, so headed out to put on the feedbag. I didn't have far to go...
|Yum! This was good!|
It pays to wander out into the night, it seems.
The next night brought the show at Zanies. The turn out for the meet and greet prior to the show was a small, but very dedicated bunch of fans. These Q&As are so much fun for me and with AMC's cancellation and the Prospect Park issue a-broiling, folks had lots of questions. I added some behind the scenes stories, talked about my family, let these folks know how deeply their devotion is felt by myself and all of the Daytime family.

These images are taken off video, by the way...
That's why they look the way they do.

Thanks so much for coming out...I love you all!
Next up: "Jackson" in Jackson!
