A Few Words
To the audience before a libertarian comedy show, on Sunday, June 12th, 2016:
...so, uh, this morning was horrible.
I assume that we've all heard the news, about what happened in Orlando last night? It's obviously devastating -- I have a number of colleagues on the Fringe circuit who hail from the area. And I'm sure we're all still reeling.
The wounds are still raw. I am not mentally or emotionally equipped right now to riff on what happened. And, frankly, I'm not qualified to analyze all of the implications of what went down last night.
I am, however, supremely qualified to stand on this stage, and tell you some stories, and tell you some jokes, about my life as a political outsider. If that's something that is somehow useful to you today, then for the next hour, I've got your back. Let's get started.
