So I post on this blog infrequently at best, but I brought a disposable camera to the Sasquatch Music Festival and now have some sweet photos to share.
First up, I met Pete Holmes. Awesome, since he’s pretty much the best. As you can see I am wearing my “PIERCE!” shirt, which is basically just a transcript of one of my favourite jokes of his. I went to the tent his show was at early and actually got to talk to him (and a few other fans) for maybe 10 minutes before the show started. I felt like kind of a dummy with my beard-facepaint, but hey, it’s Sasquatch. Whatever man.
Next up, Nick Kroll. I talked to him for maybe 20 seconds, but I feel like I was able to make it clear to him that I feel he is hilarious.
The third photo, John Mulaney. What a swell human being. My friend Mac took the photo and was sure to emphasize to John that I was a funny guy that was an aspiring comedian, so that led to me talking to John for a bit about stand-up. He was nice about it, asked me where I was doing it, wished me luck, etc. I wish I had talked to Pete Holmes about doing stand-up, but there was 5-6 other fans there so I didn’t want to be dominating the conversation. In hindsight, I’m an idiot. Fuck those other people. If Pete wants to talk stand-up he’ll talk stand-up. Let him make the decision. I suppose being drunk by 11am has an impact on the way your mind processes things.
