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!
