The Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour in Pictures

I had a very good time on the Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour with Grady Ray. Well, as good of a time as I could have missing the hell out of my son Sam. Something has happened to me over the course of his growing form an infant to a toddler to a little boy I can have conversations with. I have become dependent on him for my happiness. Now, I know this may sound typical of being a loving parent, but it has made me put a lot of things in perspective. It has helped me grow as a person and certainly helped me appreciate what I have more.  I do not think I will be taking off again for this type of tour with he and my wife in tow.  Even then it would have to be limited to less than a few weeks at a time.

I have a lot of thanks to give, if you are pictured in this gallery you deserve the ultimate thanks. I won’t bother to list individuals because I have more effectively already done this on facebook.

The other take away for me on the Quit Your Day Job Comedy Tour is about me on stage. I learned more about what makes me funny on stage. I stopped using a set list and just let stuff come out. Much of my sets toward the end of the tour were improvised. In fact, at my show in Huntsville at least 75% of my material was based on a segment where I had the audience ask me questions. This is nothing groundbreaking as a stand-up concept, but it definitely let me draw from a lot of different parts of my life to be funny.  I can’t wait to do this more!

    I had a great time hosting you guys on this tour! I was really impressed with your comedy and feel proud to have worked with you. If you’re ever in Houston again you can crash on our couch and headline another show at that Midtown Bar and Grill place. We’ve moved our shows to Friday nights and we’ve started an open mic on Wednesdays. The open mic is a struggle but the shows are doing fairly well. That is all. Thank you. Love, Bob Morrissey.

      Love you Bob! Thanks so much for the great crash pad. I LOVE your neighborhood. Still one of my highlights of tour was walking around Montrose.
