Joe Currie’s Apology to Davin (Davin’s Den)

I apologize to Davin. This statement alone makes me cringe and want to jump in a wood chipper but it has to be done. A month ago or so I wrote a blog how Davin was getting sucked in with the internet scammers we have been screwing around with, where for a moment you slip…

Popcorn Brain – Pip Helix (Davin’s Den)

I am one of the movie-impaired. It’s a small, but practically never spoken of sub-group of differently-abled persons, the chief symptom being that I just cannot enjoy a movie like a normal person. I assume that normal people watch movies and let themselves be passively carried away by the story, enjoying the plot twists and…

The Dilemma of the Drunk Patron

At this point in the evolution of standup comedy in most venues comedy is looked at as more of a way to boost food and beverage sales than an art form.  To be honest, it would be very hard for a comedy club to stay open without liquor sales.  Especially, when more and more venues…

These SOB’s are going to roll me!

So as many of you know I poke a stick in the eye of a very specific type of criminal element.  I torment the romance scammers from Africa who steal thousands of dollars from lonely folks looking for love.  One day I will write the book I have in me and give my secrets away. …

Road Rage by Pip Helix (Davin’s Den)

I support all kinds of animal causes.  I would throw myself in harm’s way to protect a child, and I am generally a good wife, friend and neighbor.  However, when alone in my car, I can become a seething, frothing animal. Even though I am lucky enough to have a short commute to my day…

Davin’s Den Comedy Tour Recap (The End)

So it is our last full day of the tour.  When you are on the road it is very easy to lose track of the days.  It is like stepping outside your life for awhile and leading some other type of life.  You work on a different schedule, you eat different foods, and you do…

Davin’s Den Comedy Tour Recap (Day 5)

The blogs are taking longer and longer to write.  Either more stuff is happening or I am getting more philosophical as the tour goes on.  I don’t know.  I’ll let the historians figure it out.  As I type this my head is spinning with thoughts.  I am finding it hard to focus.  I’m tired and…

Davin’s Den Comedy Tour Recap (Day 4)

On the road again to the final hotel of the tour.  I have stayed there before.  I arranged for the club to get the hotel at a special rate years ago.  It was an upgrade from the previous hotel the comics stayed at.  This hotel blows.  We walk in and the giant gum ball machine…
