Viva Laughlin

No, I'm not talking about the TV program. I missed the debut. I was intrigued, but I don't mind missing it too much. I don't quite understand why Laughlin, a town best known for appealing to people who like the Vegas feeling without all the crowds, crime, and other stuff. "Look, folks! People get killed and sin their asses off in LAUGHLIN too!"

Anyway, this is actually a gig announcement. See below (C
lick the pic for a larger image).

That's right! Andy Martello is playing the passive aggressive gambling capital of the world, Laughlin, Nevada! If you live anywhere near Laughlin or are planning on going out there between November 5th and November 10th you can see ME at the Comedy Shop, located inside the beautiful River Palms Resort & Casino.

Yeah, I know I'm only the opener, but it will still be lots of fun AND it represents another booking I can pimp out to the agencies and so on. If I show them I'm personable, professional, and most importantly - BOOKABLE it may help grease the wheels a bit.

This was actually the first gig I had when i got to town. It just took FOREVER to get the details worked out. Long story. I was originally slated to be the headliner (seriously...I'm not trying to pad this or anything), but I think since I'm so new around here it was decided to put me in as host and see how the crowd & casino reacts. No biggie. The pay is way better than most (ALL) non-casino comedy clubs and I can shuttle back and forth to make cash at my day job during that week as well.

I've set my goals to try and snag at least ONE gig a month. More would be better, but I need that ONE gig to not only maintain my sanity and hope for a better future, but to help offset some of the costs and ease the financial pain of not exactly having a great-paying day job. I actually picked up something locally for December as well so this strategy may work out.

Truthfully if I could get to work this casino in Laughlin once a month I'd be a happy guy. We'll see.

Rumor has it Julie may be able to attend this show. Perhaps I can get other area bloggers out there for some fun. I'll keep you posted.

You can't do badly in a town that has the word "laugh" in its name, right?

Take out the "l" and you've got Laugh In. What does the "host" do? Do you get to perform or what? Sounds like a good gig.
