MICHAEL SHOWALTER/MICHAEL IAN BLACK TOUR
Michael Ian Black backstage playing internet poker.
This is one of my many photographs of Eugene setting up the projector and screen before the show.
This is a funny picture of Eugene, Michael and I at the hotel. I think we look like three husbands on a camping trip with three women who are childhood friends and we’re just a bunch of dudes who don’t know each other and are trying to be good sports about letting them take a picture. Though Black and Eug holding hands kind of gives that away.
Hilarious shot of Black pumping gas and giving thumbs up.
BLACK/SHOWALTER TOUR DAY FIVE/SIX
(Sho) After the show we hung out a bit in the bar downstairs. For the most part, everyone is really friendly. For instance this one drunk girl came up to me at the bar and I’d like to relay that conversation to you. First she comes up to and stands at least half-an-armslength too close to me causing me to step backwards causing her to step forwards causing me to step backwards again causing her to step forwards and before you know we’re doing the TANGO! I don’t like “close talkers.” I’m very persnickety about my personal space. Anyway here’s the convo as best as I can recall. I don’t know if she was gay or straight but she looked like a butch lesbian.
Girl: So, I hear you’re a comedian, huh?
Girl: Are you funny?
Girl: I heard you did a show upstairs.
Girl: I heard it went all right.
Girl: You seem depressed.
Me: I’m not.
Girl: That’s too bad.
Me: No, it’s not. It’s good that I’m not depressed.
Girl: I’m Sarah.
Me: Hi. Sarah.
Girl: And you are?
Girl: My friends and I are gonna do some blow and explore D.C. Wanna come?
She walks away annoyed. Just another night in our nation’s capitol.
(Black) I did some blow with this chick Sarah and fell asleep around dawn.
anybody else going to the show in atlanta?
