Joke Joint Comedy Club - I got Freebies

I have a pile of free coupons to the Joke Joint I've been (figuratively) sitting on for several months.  Let's use them!  Tickets are good any day except Sat, so I somewhat arbitrarily picked Friday Feb. 10. 

We'll meet at Moose Country for drinks and dinner about 6:15 and then head over to Joke Joint around 7:30.  Show is at 8.  If you want to skip dinner and just see the show that's fine, meet us there.  I'll let the ticket person at Joke Joint know.

Here's the URL for Joke Joint.

Here's the URL for Moose Country.

Show is Brendon Walsh.  From the Joke Joint website:

Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Brendon Walsh established himself in comedy in Austin, TX. In 2004 he won the “Funniest Person In Austin” contest and that same year also appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as his original character, “Scary Monster” (a terrible monster stand up comedian). In 2005 and 2006 he was voted “Best Stand-Up Comedian” in the Austin Chronicle’s “Readers Poll”. In 2006 he appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and on season 4 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” 

In 2007 he won the $10,000 grand prize on the comedy stage in an internet contest at Famecast.com, beating out hundreds or maybe even thousands of other people for the prize money and title of “Famecast Comedy Fenom”. He was featured in the “New Faces” Showcase at the 2008 Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal where he was recognized as one of the breakout performances and returned to the festival in 2010 to tape a special for HBO called “Funny As Hell”. On Thanksgiving of 2010, he appeared on CONAN on TBS.

In 2009, Brendon sold a scripted comedy, “Crowded Apartment” to Spike.

You can also see Brendon regularly on "The World's Dumbest" on TruTV

    Good food and great company. But the comedy was not that great. But Gary had no control over the comedy. So, he still deserves credit for organizing this event and scoring the free tickets. Thanks Gary.

    Here's a reminder to update your status if it changes. A minimum 12 hour notice would be great. A 6:14 update saying you won't be there at 6:15 is kinda useless. Not totally, but really close.
    For those on the waiting list, I expect there will be some cancellations by the end of the week. No special psychic abilities, it just always happens. Even if you don't clear the waitlist, you may still want to come. Despite my cajoling, there are always no shows, though I can't say how many.

    We have reservations for 30 at Joke Joint. Doors open at 7. We have a section to ourselves. If you are skipping dinner just head over to JJ and tell them you're with TC Comedy and Wine. If you're going to dinner, we can all walk over to JJ together. Oh, when you get to Moose Country, tell them you're with TC Comedy and Wine. They'll point out where to go. I have reservations at Moose Country for 20.

    I cannot believe we have 30 people. When Ken gave me another 14 free spots, I figured that was more than enough. And then it filled up the same day! This is a TC Comedy and Wine record. I think the most we've had before was about a dozen for Brave New Workshop. Speaking of BNW - they just gave me a 1/2 price deal. Will book something in March. Stay tuned.

    I didn't think it would come to this, but I should let people know that I only have 16 free tickets. I'll set up a limit and a waiting list. People are always welcome to come, but freebies go to the first 16.

    Wow! 10 signups within 5 minutes of listing. And I don't even know who'll be on stage. Never underestimate the power of free.
