Voice Over job and Stand up gigs keep coming in.

Yesterday had some nice work for my first political voice over job..2 spots one each for TV and radio..and its an issue I'm FOR..keeping same day voter registration in Maine [i.e. you can register then vote on the same day]... Job made possible by high tech sound board, emailed script and 3 way phone patch..ahh I remember using razor blades and tape on my college radio shows!  the NOT so good old days!..great to work with my friend and sound guru Rick Watson [aka producer of my C.L.Thomas CD]..Thanks Rick!
Speaking of thanks ...Brian Martin at the Cliff House gave me a nice review of our summer shows there [see testimonal page] I'm very lucky to work with such high level professionals!
Stand up work keeps rolling in.  Tonight I hit Portland's Gold Room also news of New Years Eve about to be confirmed..watch the upcoming gigs page..and next week C.L. and I hit the Boston Stand up Scene again..Comedy Studio in Havard Square watch out!!
There ya go buddy!

Stand up shows so much fun even C.L. is doing it!

Last night found C.L.Thomas doing his first 8 min set at Boston's Beantown Comedy Vault. It was my idea to see how the material would be recieved in that kind of atmosphere and in C.L.'s words "it wern't too bad"!  It was a "showcase" night, with 6-8 comics doing their short sets. The crowd was real small and not very giving. Most of the comics came off stage with wounded egos as we can be a tad fragile in that department. Interestingly one comic told me "sure you had fun, you got to hide behind your character!" As if my commitment to the materal and of risk of failure wasn't as high as my fellow performers.  But he was right... I did have fun!  Maybe thats why I call C.L. my "alter ego."
Stay tuned for the next roll of the dice when C.L. appears at The Comedy Studio in Nov. See "Upcoming Gigs" page for time and location.
There ya go Buddy!

C.L. Thomas to hit the Boston Stand up Clubs!!

Its gonna be fun...and an experince to transition my alter ego Maine Character "C.L. Thomas" from character one man show to a 7 min stand up showcase. It's happening at 2 of the best stand up clubs in Beantown. First showcase will be at Dick's Beantown Comedy Vault in Remingtons Restaurant on Boylston St Oct 20th at my friend Chris Zito's Comedy Sandbox Show 8pm start FMI http://www.dickdoherty.com/ ..Then next month Nov 3rd at The Comedy Studio at the Hong Kong Restaurant in Harvard Sq. Cambridge Ma. FMI http://www.thecomedystudio.com/ .  This is where owner and long time bud Rick Jenkins runs the only true "Industry" room in the Boston area [i.e. NY and LA producers come to see whats new ALL the time!]
Rick has challenged me to bring my A game for this short quick set and to see how Boston comedy fans receive C.L....I'm feeling the love already!
This really is exciting. So if you have the time I'd love to see a supportive crowd at both venues.
Oh and I've come up with an official title for my guy...C.L.Thomas "The Ambassador from Maine"!!!!
There ya go Buddy
