Is Dane Cook going to be there? Because I would pay money not to see Dane Cook.

Bill said...

Dane Cook won't be there next week too. So you can pay twice since you'll have missed him both times.

Jamie uses the club for an awful lot of charitable works and by donating the admission fee to the WGF Industry Support Fund, we collected $760 -- which is an all industry fund and used for BTL'ers who are suffering as well.

Having been a friend of his for many years I offered to show up and collect the donations on behalf of the Fund -- with the help of Matt Goodman, another Guild member.

Jamie's going to do this every week for the continuation of the strike and as long as there is a need. So we expect not to see you next week as well, but you can send in your check.

So who was there? Which comics performed?

Bill said...

I didn't watch the whole thing -- but there was a comic Jordan something who was trying out a talk show like Spike Feresten. And the one guest that was really pretty funny and out there was the guy listed below.

It's going to be different people each week depending on who is available.
