“Hi, yes, may I please spend $450 on an eleven minute ride while I sit in the back of a stranger’s Honda Civic as he talks my ear off about his candle making business?” By the way, one day I ordered an UberX, and a guy picked me up in a Tesla. A $75,000 car. I swear to God this is a true story. I got in, and before I could open my mouth to say hello, the driver says, “I have only one rule: don’t ask me about my Tesla.” The ride was completely silent after that because other than their pending divorce, the only interesting thing about people with Teslas is their Tesla.
3. More Bang for that Buck.
New Year’s Eve itself is always rife with over-priced cover charges and annoying crowds. Same goes for all the other major drinking holidays, St Patrick’s Day. 4th of July. Earth Day. Especially Earth Day. Want to wait in a massive line of 30 hippies to hug a tree on April 22? Didn’t think so. Turn that Weeping Willow’s frown upside down on April 21st like an intelligent adult.
2. No Ball Drops.
I’ve been banned from using most major search engines, but I’m fairly sure that thousands of people are killed in ball drop related incidents each year. Ever notice that it’s the two biggest, strongest players that partake in the ball drop at center court at the beginning of basketball games? That’s not strategy. It’s safety.
1. You Don’t Have to Dress Up.
No sparkly dresses. No ill-fitting blazers. Wear whatever you want. My show is literally occurring in a place called “The Tin Roof.” You could probably get away with not wearing shoes if tetanus wasn’t such a concern – wait...is that really how you spell tetanus? Also I’m totally kidding please don’t cancel the show The Tin Roof is the best, their drinks are great, their food is great, the two Charleston comedians opening are great, and I am extremely underrated. Please wear shoes.
