Taking notes in public can yield unexpected treasures. I was minding my own business at the Comedians of Comedy show at the Roxy last night, trying to jot down jokes between gales of laughter, when a guy came up and handed me a flier for Anderson Comedy's "Halloween Spooktacular" at the Middle East Corner on Tuesday night. "Since you're taking notes, I thought I'd give you this," he said. Whoever he was, he's a natural PR man. It looks like it'll be a funny show: A raft of local comedians are performing tribute sets as Larry the Cable Guy, Carlos Mencia, Jerry Seinfeld, Yakov Smirnoff (!), and more. Best of all, it's free. And that's no joke.
Just don't drink too much or you'll wind up like this guy.
