    Saw Steve Harvey right before he became a huge star. It was worth every penny! After his set, he came over and talked to us because he said "You all were laughing!!" I had tears coming out of my eyes, more times than not! My love of laughter came in real handy that night.

    I think it's interesting.....we were watching HIM and he was watching US.

    What I like about comedians is that they can work with whatever is given to them. Someone in the audience shouts something out, and the guy on stage doesn't even have to think about what to do with it. He works with it naturally.

    I also shook hands with one of them on the way out. His name is Adam Ray. Apparently he was in a Sandra Bullock movie but looking it up, he's not listed in the credits.
    It sounds like improv ... Second City stuff. I have a family member who was part of the Second City cast.

    People in the audience come up with topics, themes, shout outs and they(the cast) pick it up and build on it. It is actually fun to do that with friends/family and you end up with your own SNL.

    Yep. It was kind of like improv, I guess. Except nobody was asked to shout anything out

    Like, the comedian started making fun of Nickelback and started singing one of their songs, but one of the guys I went with corrected him and shouted out that the song he was using was Creed, not Nickelback. Then that made the guy on stage change the subject to karaoke for a while.

    I'd go back. I'd take my mom for the experience but she's not into stand-up.

    Sometimes suggestions/requests are written down in advance. I think they all have their own way to do things. It still sounds like it was fun.

    Convince your Mom that it will be a new and good experience with you as her date.

    I can't believe I did what I did today! I'm happy I did it but still can't believe it.
    I was out with my son and his girlfriend today. They took me to get supplies from the pet store.
    I didn't know until we went inside the store that it was adoption day.

    Well...there were these 2 cats. They are sisters and were found as starving strays. They had been at the pound for a while. One was adopted and howled until she was returned to the shelter and her sister. They had to be adopted together. That's hard. Most people only want one at a time and they want kittens.

    Long story short. There are 2 scrawny orange sisters approximately 5 years old hiding in the spot under my stairs.
    I couldn't resist. I have the time and they needed me. I put what they needed in the spot and will leave them be.

    I'm calling them Peanut and Butter for now. I used to have orange cats named Cheddar and,Cheese.

    I'll post more in the animal thread.

    I'm crazy!

    When my daughter and her boyfriend (husband now) were living in a tiny studio apartment with 2 cats, my daughter went to the pet store to buy food. This was about 3 years ago. It was adoption day, and late in the day, and there was one cat left who hadn't been adopted. My daughter felt sorry for it and took it home. Just last week her brothers were teasing her about it, and she told them "Miko was the best impulse purchase I ever made."

    My SIL also has a soft spot for cats. He had a sweet old cat named Misty (she just died last year). He named her Misty because he got her on a misty Halloween night. He was 12 and out trick or treating. At one house, a guy opened the door. There was a cat inside and the guy kicked it (literally kicked it) out the door. My SIL told him he shouldn't treat animals like that, and the guy said, "Well, you take care of the damn cat then," so my SIL took the cat home with him.

    Take your mom. You didn't know you were into stand-up either. Maybe she'll like it too - if not, I'm sure she'll enjoy seeing you enjoy it. Moms love to see their kid laughing and having a good time, and getting to see their kid's sense of humor.

    I love it when my sons take me out. Usually it's to a baseball game, theatre, or dinner, but in January one of my sons took me paddleboarding. He had to talk me into it. I wanted to try it but was also terrified. It turned out I was really good at it and had a great time. I'd love to do it again.
