Had to go see Michael Showalter in Chapel Hill last night myself, but the ticket karma thing panned out. Had two tickets and didn't want to waste the other, so I just stood outside the venue offering the other ticket to those who hadn't bought one already. Gave this girl my other ticket and her and her friend sympathized with my plight and let me hang out with them.
Saw him after the show and he told me of how awful the old comedy set-up was at Sasquatch and the horror that was trying to do a stand-up act while Mars Volta was playing right next to the building. Sweet guy.
