Louis C.K. is doing small venues this year to work out his new material, and he’s using a local comic from each city to open for him. So with three hours’ notice, I found myself on stage at the Orange Peel in front of a thousand people saying, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Louis C. K!” It was surreal. He said “good job,” and he meant it. Yes, I got to hang out with him and he is nice and he’s a lot like you would think he’d be. No, I haven’t gotten signed for any TV deals yet. But I did get this blurry photo with him.
Last week I had to fly to New York for one night to perform for Gotham Comedy Live, a comedy show which is filmed for AXS TV and will air in early 2017. It was the most glamorous thing I have ever done. (I’m still Grayson from the block, though, you guys. I definitely drove two and a half hours to Charlotte airport because it was cheaper, I flew to Newark and I slept on a couch in Bed-Stuy. No matter where I go I know where I came from.)
