The lingering is how they get ya.

Back at the ranch, Partners-

Hey gang! I can’t tell you how it great it is to be home for more than 3 days. It feels like it has been months. I’ve been doing some work around the house and outside. I actually went to IKEA the other day and only bought things I needed. I had to do it quickly. The lingering is how they get ya.

I thought is would be fun to do a weekend down in Irvine at the Improv. I figured its nearby, go do some shows, make a few bucks and see a few WTFers. Man, was I wrong. I had some good shows but it was not fun. The only fun thing about it was seeing some of you guys down there and playing to you--pockets of WTFers amongst a sea of free ticket holders at a a shopping mall in a corporate club in Orange County. WTF was I thinking? We did okay. If you came down I urge you to come see me again in a club that has a soul.

But, again, thanks for coming out and thanks for bringing cookies, candy and stuff. Thanks to whoever had flowers (ProFlowers at that) sent to me as a Mother’s Day gift from Monkey, Boomer and LaFonda. Very clever.

I am very excited about the show this week. As some of you know I went up to Santa Barbara and spent an hour or so with Jonathan Winters at his home. I was quite nervous and a bit in awe of the comedic genius that is Winters. He is 85 but is still firing on all cylinders. I hope you dig the talk. Also this week, in honor of George Carlin’s birthday, I talk to Sally Wade. Sally was George’s partner, significant other, girlfriend, however you want to say it, she was with him for the last decade or so of his life and has put out a very touching and fun book about their relationship, The George Carlin Letters: The Permanent Courtship of Sally Wade. These are shows in honor of true comedy legends.

I will be in San Antonio at LOL Comedy Club this weekend May 13th, 14th and 15th. Come down if you are around.

New website is coming (it’s actually here but it is a ‘soft launch’). You will be able to listen and download from the site. It is beautiful, fun and will have everything WTF/Maron related. Check it out.
