Thank you, Long Beach! Last night was beautiful! The Terrace Theater where I performed was the location where Richard Pryor filmed his 1979 “Live In Concert” special. I went back and watched it again this morning and it was surreal because in the beginning of the film Richard pulls up to the same loading dock where I arrived last night and the camera follows him into the same dressing room that I used. When I was in high school my parents took me to see the movie “Richard Pryor Live On The Sunset Strip”. That movie changed my life because I had never really seen stand up comedy before that. I remember sitting in that movie theater as a 14 year old kid, crying laughing and being in awe that this man was doing all this by just talking. I remember thinking that I had seen funny movies before, but I had never seen anything even close to how funny this brilliant man was, and somehow he was doing it walking around with a microphone onstage by himself. It was easily one of the most influential moments of my childhood, and for me to now be able to play at some of the same venues that he performed in kinda freaks me out. I’m extremely grateful, and extremely thankful to everyone that came to the show!
