More of of mixed bag these weekend as one show was kind of a dud, one was not as great I had hoped it would be, and the two variety shows were terrific, but at less than a hour and a half each, felt short. They were immaculately produced so I can't really complain.
Friday night's shows allowed me to see Bobcat Goldtwhait perform twice, which was a real treat as he's mainly a film director these days. Check out World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams if you haven't seen it.
And I got to see one of my favorite comics Paul F. Tompkins at three different events, climaxing with his variety show at Yoshi's.
Again, I've been posting reviews of the shows over on the A Special Thing forums here.
