Not that'd matter if we did know.

The beauty of a small crowd for a storyteller is it feels like dinner conversation, rather than a raucous party. I love feeling walls of laughter from hundreds of people, but it's not personal.

The only thing I can picture in my head when I think of "edgy Jesuit" is a priest in cassock wearing high top sneakers shooting hoops with the kids and reciting lyrics from Will Smith songs.

Jim Hamilton's Poems About the Ocean

Tony Bartolone | Posted 08.09.2012 | Comedy
Tony Bartolone

Hamilton is incredibly proficient at concealing the formula while drawing the audience in. Then when you are just completely hypnotized, laughter hits. Tension is employed through the suspense of his deliberately paced delivery. Where is he going? What comes next?

Instead of these run-of-the-mill-seen-them-a-thousand-times-and-I'm-bored-to-tears events, perhaps the 2016 Olympics, held in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro, can feature several events never before seen in an Olympic arena.

It's quite easy to assume that anyone who does a comedy show about God is going to be derogatory towards religious people. That it will bully the poor figure and poke holes in sundry paper-thin arguments based on naught but faith and old books.

Just a few years ago loved those deals so much that we bought hundreds or even dozens of them, from Groupon or one of the Groupon-alikes that leaped into the market, then we forgot that we had bought them until they expired.

The problem is this: you have chosen as your outdoor concert space the area immediately below my bedroom window. Therefore I have been awoken for the past several days by bagpipes, commencing with militaristic regularity at 9:00 am.
