B.J. Novak The Office

I went to BJ’s show at George Washington University last night, and it was so great! The audience was really excited, even starting a chant of “We want BJ!” while we waited.

When he walked on stage, I realized how nice it was to see a familiar face after this long Office withdrawal. He gave us an awesome show, but I won’t spoil anything by telling you my favorite jokes. (Pandas, anyone?)

However, I do hope a Tallyhead got a photo of him with “Shy Puppet” because BJ specifically requested that we post that photo on the web so everyone would think his act was really a puppet show. I couldn’t get my camera out in time to get a shot of it, but it was a really cute moment.

Anyway, let’s skip ahead to the most important part — meeting BJ! If I had known I’d get a chance to meet him after the show, I would have put a little more effort into covering up the zit on my chin.

As I waited in line, I wondered how I could make him be my best friend in 30 seconds. Should I make him laugh? Should I flatter him? Should I club him over the head and take him hostage?

I decided I’d just tell him that I loved the show. I loved that his jokes were not only funny, but also really smart. You can tell he’s got the mind of a writer, and that he trusts his audience is intelligent. I have a lot of respect for that.

When it was finally my turn to meet him, I condensed all that into “Hi, it’s so nice to meet you!” But I think he got the gist.

I did manage to stop swooning long enough to ask if he would be getting back to The Office soon. He was optimistic, and said they should be able to finish 4 more episodes this season if all goes as planned. Fingers crossed!

In all seriousness, he was really gracious and friendly, and it was such a fun night. Highly recommended.
