Dispatches from the Head

The Ugly Angry Lady.



What’s up, people-

Again with the dates? Yes. I will be at The Punchline in San Francisco Nov. 2nd through 5th and at The Neptune Theater in Seattle Nov. 25th. Also, if you are in the Chicago area, a screening of Jodi Lennon’s short documentary featuring me, ‘A Voice of Something’, will be screening at The Annoyance Theater Nov. 8th and 9th.

Writing on a plane right now. I’m tired and a little aggravated. I got to the airport very early and I had something to eat at an upscale airport restaurant. Meaning you could sit down and someone would take your order. When I sat down there was a women at the table beside me angrily and verbally waiting for her change. The dialogue I gleaned was something along these lines:

Ugly Angry Lady: (to server) Where is my waitress with my change? It doesn’t take that long to get change.

Not Her Server Guy: We don’t have a lot change this early. She’s going to find some.

Ugly Angry Lady: Well, I have a flight to catch. This is ridiculous.

Not Her Server Guy: I’ll see if I can find her.

Her server shows up with her change.

Her Server: Sorry about the wait. Thank you.

Ugly Angry Lady: Well, the eggs were cold and I asked for my bacon well done and it wasn’t.

Her Server: Sorry.

I had neither of those problems. My breakfast was good. Ugly Angry Lady chose to shit on her server’s day. It upset me. I have been guilty of the same, but I apologize and am trying to be a better person.

I went to the American Airlines lounge to sit down and the Ugly Angry Lady was there. She wasn’t in a hurry. As it turns out she’s on my flight. I was trying to figure out a way to shit on her day because she’s awful. There is some mild scheming going on right now but I haven’t figured anything out yet. Just employed a bit of the old maximum stinkeye filled with judgment. I think she got it. Maybe I’ll write on her face while she is sleeping, ‘Mean Cunt.' Just an idea.

New York, New York, it’s a helluva town. I’m glad I don’t live there anymore. I love it in small doses now. It was fucking snowing and cold. When did the time difference between NYC and LA become a month ahead? I had great sets at The Comedy Cellar and got to spend some time with old friends like Dave Attell, Jim Norton, Keith Robinson, Colin Quinn, Amy Schumer, Ted Alexandro and Neal Brennan, with whom I got into a loud argument which ended in a peaceful resolution and possibly a WTF episode idea. Turns out it wasn’t me he was really mad at, it was his dad… and me.

Great shows this week. Thursday we have a Live from The Bell House episode with Seth Meyers, Scott Adsit, Julian McCullough, Gabe Leidman, Rachel Feinstein and Jody Lennon. It was a hilarious show. On Thursday you can spend an hour or so with Chris Rock. We had a great talk about comedy with some serious esoteric name-dropping.

Enjoy.


Love,
Maron
