december 13, 1980


Here’s a warts-and-all snippet from December 13, 1980 at d.w. eye.  This is the seventh show I ever did.  I had just turned 17 exactly one month earlier.  This act comes immediately after I returned from my NY trip with my father.  (Chapter 20 – Home)  The eye was recording an album that night which was never released, but I understand the tapes are still floating out there somewhere…

The material here is pretty bad, but it’s amazing how responsive the audience is – laughing and applauding – considering such mediocre material.  No wonder I was so obsessed with it all.  The one thing I think you do hear is the absolute camaraderie the comics had for one another.  You can clearly hear Rico and Mike laughing generously and loudly throughout the act.  Even Roger’s intro is warm and friendly.  Wow.

More mp3s in the next few weeks…
