It was our first outdoor performance but it worked great largely because the events staff at Sac State are so on top of things. Lights, sound, even the snacks back stage, everything was great. And a good crowd of students and even some townies showed up to cheer us on. It was probably one of the more diverse crowds we've had with every religion represented on our stage also well represented in the audience.
We didn't get photos but we did get some great video and I'll put some clips up soon. Until then, I'll leave you with this "White Power Yoga." I figure that should have us turning up in some interesting Google searches.
We had a GREAT time at Harbin Hot Springs. We performed in their temple, usually off limits to comedians but we qualified for an exception given the religious nature of our tour (very funny for me as an atheist.) Unfortunately Tissa wasn't able to join us as she hadn't made it back from her appearance "The View" on Thursday. I explained to the audience what The View was since a-lot of them do not watch TV at all. I explained what TV was too.
We got there early, had dinner and did an awesome show in the temple. We performed in our socks and the audience were seated on pillows, in fact of half the audience was lying down. Pretty unusual setting for stand up.
Afterwards I indulged in the amazing hot bath (pictured) followed by the uber cold bath and back to the hot, repeated several times. At first, I really didn't think I could get in the hot bath. It was so hot on my feet but once I'd gone back and forth a few times I got to really enjoy it. I enjoyed Harbin over all. Beautiful place, wonderful people and I hope we get to perform there again soon. Oh, and the dinner and breakfast we had were delicious. Harbin.org
Sac State certainly seems stoked to see us coming as evidenced by the huge posters of us EVERYWHERE on campus. Very cool. Looking forward to the show, which is by the way Thursday May 8th, at 7:30pm and it's FREE!!!
You're right, we don't do many free shows. This is the first, so don't miss your opportunity.
