My Senior Prom Was 40 Years Ago Today


At Terrace on the Park in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens.

For the record the one and only time I ever did stand up comedy was that night.  It didn’t go that well because well-meaning people thought that heckling helped.  It doesn’t.  The trauma of it probably kept me from ever doing it again.  From that point on I was an ensemble performer, most likely subconsciously.  It was years later I recalled that up until that experience I was preparing to do stand up, but never did it again.

Kinda pivotal turn in my life, and like many others, I was consciously oblivious to it for a long time.

Humans is weird.  I know I am.
