A guy driving a truck is about to turn into the bike lane. ADAB stops to avoid getting hit.
ADAB: (Yelling.) “Hey, I’m right here in front of you!”
Guy: (Looks left and right, doesn’t see me.)
ADAB: (Slaps hood hard; yells louder.) “I’m right fucking here, asshole!”
Guy: (Surprised. Says nothing.)
ADAB: (Leaves in disgust, hoping he doesn’t follow, veer into him or shoot.)
O'er the river,
through the wood. I would bike, but
missed the fucking turn.
Full beer glass in hand,
delicious golden nectar.
Bike drivers ed class!
I got to see, hear and touch (just a handshake, mind you), professional funnyman and human being Jake Johannsen after participating in, well, just attending, his first show of a four-night stint 8/14-17 at at Capitol City Comedy Club. A couple of friends and I were fortunate enough to see his show again. I wrote about his hilarious stand-up comedy act last year. Some of his material was the same (but just as funny!), and quite a lot was new. Many jokes were laugh til you almost cry funny. One woman even slapped her leg while laughing, and he commented on that, comicly, of course. And then we got to meet and chat after. Very cool. More after the More bar… which I’m told you don’t really see. Never mind.
Former cyclist Saurabh (“Do you even bike, bro?” No.) and I hit Cap City Comedy Club for a sweet Wednesday night delicious yuk-fest. (Do you see what I did there?) The opening act from Austin, who just moved to Atlanta, was named Austin. The second act was from St. Louis and drats if I can’t find his name. Both are funny gentlemen. But the headliner was a familiar face, a comedy stalwart (who has no actual warts) and was on the Late Show with David Letterman a whopping 46 times, has HBO and other TV specials, podcaster and nice guy who had us laughing uncontrollably. He’s also a sex robot and rides a bicycle… in LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA! Here’s a little post about Jake Johannsen. You might also enjoy… Jake Johanssen*. You can’t win them all, but I felt like a winner tonight! (*The title of one of his comedy specials.) Continue reading
