Tallyhead Ian’s craiglist report
Ian sent this report to me from his iPhone at around 4am. What Tallyheads will do to get the story!
I had drinks with “Michelle” from B.J’s Saturday night 10:30 show.
For those of you who weren’t there, B.J. incorporated a Craigslist ad into his Saturday night 10:30 act in San Francisco.
Novak takes a look at “Michelle’s” craigslist before the show and wants to know what she means by the fact that she will “owe you big time” if you provide her tickets to Sunday’s show.
So Novak calls her early in the show and waits for her to call back. She doesn’t, but he decides to call her back near the end of the show. This time she answers. She’s a bit of a freak and makes jokes about how she likes the double entrendre with his name.
Anyways, with any comedy act, you wonder if it’s real.
We leave the show (which was hilarious) and I type “B.J. Novak” on the San Francisco edition of Craigslist on my iPhone. Sure enough, Michelle’s ad comes up. We give her a call (at the same number Novak calls) and invite her to drinks at a bar less than a block from Cobb’s Comedy Club (where B.J. performed).
We expected a 400 pound hairy monster to show up, or, at the very least, a transvestite. Actually, we didn’t expect anyone to show up. But about 45 minutes after the show ended, “Michelle” shows up looking exactly like her Craigslist ad and acting just as much freak as her phone call with Novak.
Overall, a fun night. Weird … but fun.
