Bellyfull of tomato sauce, the hard way

All weekend, they have been showing what they are calling All-American Comedy on Comedy Central. In accordance to what I have seen, All-American Comedy is anything dealing with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour members. I have to admit that from Jeff Foxworthy all the way down the line to Larry, the Cable Guy, those four guys each, independently or in combination with each other, are capable of evoking involuntary belly laughs from me on a regular occasion. I admire the work of a good stand-up comedian.

I have often wondered how well I would do in front of a large audience like that. From the reactions I get when I try to make people laugh, I seem to be successful more often than not. The audiences, however, do seem to be mostly comprised of one or two personal friends. I feel free in believing that I would make a major impression of one sort or another. I am likely to really really stink or have people rolling in the aisle laughing.

I am, however, unsure of my material. Night after night, in this very column, I have performed a monologue, of sort. I suppose, in a way, that makes me a bona fide sit-down comedian, doesn't it? You do know that if you find yourself sitting there laughing as you read my posts, you are free to shower me with LOLs. Adversely, if it really stinks, you can throw vegetables -- virtual ones, of course.

If you are lucky enough to personally watch me perform and believe that my performance merits such, feel free to select an appropriately soft rotten tomato and take very careful aim at my navel. That will provide you a big round well-padded target area. I am sure you wouldn't want to do any real harm, would you? End of report.*

*What? No footnotes?

Put it this way dude. If you don't make us laugh we get to burn you at the stake. Do we got a deal? ;-)
