Comedy, Last Night

We went out last night to Fanueil Hall, to the Comedy Connection with friends to see Gary Gulman, (below) a really talented stand-up comedian. He does a lot of comedy about being Jewish in a Christian world, and he really gets it right. He also talks about cookies, about how the sugar cookie is the lowest on the cookie totem pole, being the only cookie that can only offer you a shape as its attractive quality. He says, “Guess what, Sugar Cookie? All cookies are sugar cookies. Without sugar, you’ve just got a cracker.” Yeah, it loses a lot in the translation.

He is also extremely sexy, and 6′ 6″. Like a Jewish Matthew McConaughey. He was happy to take a picture with us; I asked him how old he was, feeling a bit like a yenta, but he told me, “36.” Me, too!


I’m glad you had fun!

(We’ve had a bad few days here. On the bright side, I’ve discovered that the nearest outlet mall is a good place to take my oldest, it’s enclosed but still outdoorsy, and he can just look in the windows and not have to deal with being inside stores that might be sensory overloads, and the road noise from the highway is muted.)

Didn’t he go on tour with a bunch of comedians including Dane Cook? Tourgasm, I believe, on HBO? He looks familiar to me, but maybe I’ve just seen him on Comedy Central a few months ago.
