Missing a Gig

Last night while checking my e-mail I realized I was scheduled to do Vince Averill's and Jesse Pop's Beauty Bar show a week ago. I failed to put it in my calendar, and so I completely missed it. That's a horrible feeling for a comedian. Not only does it make you look unprofessional but it is a missed opportunity to get better. Every minute of stage time is crucial to growth as a comic. Remember how Kris-Kross felt when they missed the bus? It's like that.

On the bright side, I did fold some socks that night.

I almost missed an interview a few months ago.. Luckily I had it in my phone calendar, and it bleeped at me 20 minutes before it began, so I quickly hopped in a cab and made it just in time.

If I had turned my phone's ringer off, I would've completely not been there... I only started using a calendar recently.. Not sure how I handled appointments before then.

Was this story supposed to make me feel better? Because it did NOT.
