I don't do long posts.
I just don't have it in me.
First of all, what am I going to talk about that's worth ten minutes of your time? A bunch of topics, sure, but one?
Also, the topics that go on for any length of time are already covered: religion, politics, the religion of politics... all done ad nauseam.
So the plan is to drop some thoughts and refer you to a comic or comedy writer's website if at all possible. Some of these people are (were) friends of mine, but I trust my comedy gut well enough to know that you'll like them, too.
They're people who influence my writing and my stand-up, but mostly, they're people doing comedy right. They're creative, talented, and unique, and the fact that they're not household names or millionaires is a mystery.
So there you go: short posts reflecting a thought or two, and then I drop a comic's name you should be watching or reading.
Well, you know.
Except for this time. This was just an intro.
I'm Nick. I've never been afraid of getting in over my head, and I've survived every resulting injury from doing so. Played college football in the SEC while running a 5.1 forty at 200lbs, got booed off stage in front of 1,000 people at a 'Latino Laff Nite (I'm not Latino),' rolled with BJJ Black Belts, and got TKO'd by a Golden Gloves boxing champion during a fundraiser for MDA. The closest I ever got to being a real man was when my mom cut me off on the way to the Marine Recruiter's office - in the parking lot.
