I hope you're still planning to get "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire played like I suggested.
Thanks!

September is on the playlist

Some things will take even more time. I sometimes react like that too. It's been 12 years. I still fidget with my ring.

Chris D’Elia is not a good standup comic. He’s a funny dude but it doesn’t translate.

That's probably the biggest problem with comedy today. People think Funny=Funny, and a sitcom writer, a standup comic, and a John Oliver type aren't the same thing. There was no standup set worse than that Ilana Glazer special. It was like an AI Bot wrote a standup set after reviewing 5 million tweets.

Yuck, I didn't know she had a special. Not surprised to see it's with Amazon. You got guys like Andrew Schulz and Mark Normand self-releasing on youtube and meanwhile the comedy-adjacent get contracts for specials without ever having done an open mic. Smh man have some god damn respect for the game.

I mean, I'm saying the obvious but it's all "which person has a big enough following to get our money back plus some."

The era of "building your personal brand" is one of the worst timelines.
