I'm surprised they had enough letters!

Last Saturday night I performed in Boston opening up for George Carlin, and much to my surprise my name was on the marquee! It's even spelled correctly using all the same size letters! Usually they end up having to use a sideways 'Z' or a zero as an 'O' or something.

And yes, the name of the venue is the Wang Theater, and I'm proud to say I refrained from any juvenile "wang" jokes during my set.

Afterwards, however, was a different story: "The Wang was a lot bigger than I expected" or "tonight I had great success at the Wang," and so forth.

Jokes aside, it was an awesome show. The place holds 3,600 people and it was packed. I've never performed for a crowd that big before, and Boston was generally buzzing being the weekend before St. Patrick's Day. It was the highlight of an already great weekend opening for Carlin in Bridgeport, Foxwoods Casino, and Kingston, NY. More dates with him are coming in, including Salt Lake City, Anaheim, Reno, and others. I'll post when all the details come in.

Thanks to all that have stopped by the site and my myspace page after seeing the shows, especially to those who enjoyed my Wang performance (he he).

I saw you in Kingston, and my girlfriend saw you at Siena last year. We both agree that you kick ass. Do a show at Ithaca College after the Carlin tour is done!

Totally enjoyed your show! Was pleasantly surprised and laughed so much that we thought, "Where did this guy come from. He's great!" And we listen to comedy on both XM and Sirius so we have to request you so that the whole world can learn about you!

Thanks for being so funny and so willing to share it! And for giving us a great night out - can't wait until you come back to Boston!

Hi Rob,

I'm from Spain (though I was born in Argentina) and I saw the "Pachelbel Rant" because of a partner who sent it to me some days ago. I love music and I think it's incredible but really true.

I also laughed a lot with your video.

You're a really good musician and, of course, humorist, too.

I wish you good luck in your career... but you won't need it, I know you'll have it.

Only that.

Bye!

Rob,
I am a New Hampshire native now stuck in Miami. I see you're touring my old haunts, St. Anselm (St A's if you're local) in Manchester (hometown of myself *and* Adam Sandler, stop by his mom, Judy's house on the North end if you get a chance) and now the Wang in Boston.

I need to ask/beg/grovel, please do a show in Maimi, I have been subscribed to the damned mailing list for almost 2 years now and I have never seen a Miami show on it!

best of luck touring with Carlin, i've seen him a couple times and always leaves me in tears!
