Comedy View: December (reprinted from ModestoView.com)
Hello, hello, hello. It’s December already. I can’t be the only one trying to figure out where the year went. It seems like summer just ended and threw us into winter. Did we even have fall? Who’s the fat guy in red? We couldn’t possibly be ready for holidays yet, right? Ick! Should I be shopping or something? And a resolution…Quick! I need an un-attainable goal so I can hate myself more than usual. I resolve to not wait to write stuff until the last minute…
Join me in saying hello to new Sacramento Friends. This column is now also being posted on the website SacComedyScene.com that serves the Sacramento area. Comics from the 209 have been a part of the Sacramento scene and vice versa so I am happy to make one more connection. I will also periodically create new material for SacComedyScene.com that relates to my experiences in the Sacramento area. Howdy, Sacramento! Hope to see you at a 209 show soon.
