Grateful! Regardless of the innumerable technical challenges with the new Zoom interface, presenting to Only Me on the Facebook, thrice, despite being posted Public, the absence of notifications, the ridiculous beginning when we did finally just go for it anyway, this was one of my favorite shows in 4 yrs. Comedian, Ritch Shydner is affable, warm, hysterically funny, evolved, intelligent, and downright entertaining as (I'll take Seinfeld's advice and not go blue) all get out (ugh). Ritch exceeded all expectations, and, knowing him, mine were high. BAM! He took the stresses of the day and washed them the f**k away. Ooops.
We talked love and marriage, third time's the charm, addiction alcoholism, sugar blues, using the funny to cope, sitting down to law school, standing up, for the life he loves. Art Carney, Red Skelton. Robert Klein, George Carlin,.Richard Pryor, Carson, Leno, beforementioned Seinfeld, came up a deserving lot, Larry David Larry Miller. Bill Maher, Carol Liefer, Kathleen Wilhoite, Paul Reiser, Jeff Foxworthy, Roseanne, Don Rickles, Rodney Dangerfield, Sam Kinison, Bob Nelson, The Ramones, Married With Children, The Idolmaker, I Killed, Kicking the Ashes (or Holes if you’re a lame host), and Artemus Ward, the first standup comic, and his wife, the first American sex symbol. Fun, all!
I can think of no better cure for the pandemic blues… hours later I’m still high, and I’m sober. Ritch is happy sauce, no sugar, no guilt, no booze.
All of my thumbs WAY up.
