What did you learn today?

At the Chilly Gonzales show at Joes’ Pub tonight, I learned 4 things.

  1. I am so glad I didn’t miss this show because it was the single best live performance I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen Slayer live, mind you!). He is a passionate monster whose potential for evil is as yet, thankfully unrealized.
  2. In the words of Gonzales (slightly mangled by my memory), an entertainer is someone who “takes their worst qualities and renders them useful.”  Yes!
  3. He also said that the purpose of being on stage is to feed your ego so it doesn’t do strange things while you are out with it during the day.  This must be why I do improv (next show, tomorrow — Friday — Sparks Cafe 8 p.m.!!!) !
  4. The arugula salad at Joe’s Pub could use some hazelnuts.  If it just had hazelnuts, it would be really good.

I have video if anyone is interested, but for some reason WordPress won’t recognize a .mov  file.  Weird, right?
