Bridgetown Whoo!

Just returned from the Bridgetown comedy festival. Damn, some fun! Even more than last year. The only part that sucks is being overwhelmed, and I was that way the whole time. But in a good way. Thanks to everyone involved for making it happen.

Tried to find David Yow, wound up at P.F. Changs...

SXSW was absolutely amazing. Music squirting out of every crack and corner of Austin. And lots of new and familiar comedy faces making me laugh. I'm still overwhelmed. Big thanks to Scott and Charlie and Suzi and Noah and Michelle and Drew.

I think this sums everything up:

That's right Paul Ford, its not's fucking hilarious.
