Longview Beef Jerky

September 20, 2004

Longview, Alberta, Canada.  The best beef jerky in the world!  You kids put on a good show.  Thank you goes to Holly Clarke and the Longview Fire Department for having Daryl Makk and I perform at the fire hall September 18th.  The food was great, the guests laughed HARD. longview_beef_jerky
Daryl and I went across the street to buy up some of the world famous Longview beef jerky only to find the shop was closed for the day.  Daryl half jokingly told our story of woe as a little anecdote during his act.  By the end of Daryl’s set we had some honey garlic, some teriaki, and buffalo(hot) we were told it is “da bomb”.  I claimed the honey garlic and it was finished before I made it into my house.  The next morning my jaw ached so much I thought it was dislocated. 1 full bag Longview beef jerky X jerky chew factor = 1 Freddy lockjaw.

September 17, 2004

better put on a sweater, it's lookin' chilly outIt’s unbelievable how absolutely wonderful the world can be in the face of adversity. Hurricanes ravaging the East Coast, bombings in Iraq, porn companies FORCED to have their talent wear condoms, and yet, amongst all this turmoil, I am blessed to have the fortune to have the family that I do.

phoenix at night, or during the day if there were no sunI went to Phoenix, AZ recently. As a sidenote to everyone, bring your birth certificate and/or passport as well as your drivers licence. Things will go smoother, and you don’t have to deal with a “second interview”. Also, if you are headed to a wedding say, bring your suit, don’t leave it in the car at the airport.

Handy info.

Arizona is truely one of the most amazing places I have ever been to in my life. I’ve had some people say, “People can’t grow lawns there.” And?!? Why do people want lawns in the first place? I guess without lawns we wouldn’t have little porcelain gnomes and wire legged flamingos, nor would we have anything to fertilize, water, mow, or weed. Oh how I would miss that.

 I had the opportunity to showcase at the Tempe Improv for Dan Mer and the Las Vegas Comedy Festival in their Laugh Across America competition. Things went great, the events that led to me setting foot on stage are a true testament that I have a great family with big hearts, and an empathy for ambition. I won’t get into details, those that know what I’m talking about, know what I’m talking aboutTempe ImprovAll in all I showed well and the event was entirely productive. Dan said some promising things, Joe Rogan seemed impressed, and I got go home with the prospect of getting my ace back down to Tempe to cut a few more Ha Ha Ha’s.freddyintempe
joe rogan, what did he just see?

Now I have to mow my f*cking lawn before it f*cking snows.
