Welcome To Miami

Greetings all from muggy South Florida. You will have to pardon me if there are some spelling mistakes in this blog, as I am using an old crappy laptop, and can’t see a lot of what I am writing, but did want to get you an update from the road, as Nash and I are on the road for the next month with lots of exciting things happening. We left on Wednesday and headed down to South Beach. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, so was always partial to Ft. Lauderdale, but that may be changing now, as we had a great time in South Beach. We took American Airlines down, and were lucky as no one was sitting next to us, so Nash had a ton of room to stretch out on the plane. As I mentioned before, Nash likes to stretch out while flying. We got into South Beach on time, and were picked up by a guy, and you’re not going to believe this, and yes I did ask him, and his birth name is Jor-El, yes Superman’s father. Nice guy, and I did apologize to Jor-El in advance, as I had to hit him at least once with a Neel before Zod, a little Superman reference for ya. We got to our hotel, a boutique hotel called the Angler’s Hotel and Resort, and wow what a surprise when we got to the room, as they had a bowl waiting for Nash. along with a treat bad, and a squeaky bone for him. Not sure if this was from the hotel or Ability Explosion, but it was a preview of the greatest hospitality Nash and I have ever had at a hotel. We rested for a bit and then went down to the bar to catch the Yankees game, and that is all I will say about the Yankees. Nash and I hung out at the bar and met a ton of nice people from Chicago who were in the city doing a photo shoot. Damn, no models. We were getting ready to head up to the room when a guy came over and introduced himself by the name of Lonnie Bruhn. Lonnie was in from Portland, Oregon, and was one of the other comic’s. Lonnie has cerebal palsy, not that that makes a difference to me, as he was a helluva a nice guy. We hung out until the bar closed and shot the shit talking about the differenct comedy scenes of New York City and Portland. We made plans to head out for lunch the next day, and the next day, Thursday around 11, Lonnie and I headed the two blocks to Ocean Drive and gave South Beach a little bit of a augh before we even hit the stage. Loniie rides around in a motorized scooter, so I imagine as people saw Lonnie in his cart crossing the street, with a guy being led by a guide dog behind him, they had to let out a little bit of a chuckle, as it is not something you see every day. Lonnie and I were even laughing about it. Go figure, the blind guy and the guy with cerebal palsy are politically incorrect. We found a nice outdoor cafe, and sat down for a nice lunch across the street from the ocean. Wow, what a gorgeous day, and how amazing as South Beach is really dog friendly. I think Nash could get used to this, as it wasn’t to terribly hot, and as usual, he was getting his usual dose of compliments on how gorgeous he is. After lunch, we took a storll down the board walk, then headed back to the hotel to rest up for the big comedy show for Ability Explosion. Along with the two of us, my buddy Tim Grill was in from Philly to perform on the show, and a comic I met for the first time, Kyle was in from New Jersey. The comedy show as at the legendary Colony Theater in South Beach. We were all doing twenty minute sets, and Nash and I were heading up fourth. There was one other comic for a total of five. I was pretty happy with our set, as Nash for the most part sat calmly by my side. We got a good response to a lot of our material, but I would have thought there would have been more people at the show, but it was a Thursady night, but then again, every night is party night in South Beach. I have got to get running, but wanted to get the first part up about South Beach, more to come tomorrow about our adventure in South Beach and then on to Boynoton Beach, as we got Jiggy With It
