I think it is more than fair to say that the Laughlin booking was a success. Of course I will truly judge how successful it was based upon how soon it takes for the agency that booked me to hire me again and how many subsequent gigs this appearance helps generate. For now I say it was a very goo thing indeed.
The casino manager saw the show four times, something she NEVER does (according to her). in fact, at the end of the run her exact words were, "I'm going to do everything in my power to bring you back here." Earlier that week she told me this was the first time she not only watched the whole show but enjoyed the whole thing. I look at all of this as a positive for me.
The head of entertainment for Tropicana (the folks who own the River palms) was also in attendance at the final show. he stressed to me how much he enjoyed the performance as well and that mad me very happy.
Now I must wait not only for the check to arrive, but for that positive reaction to my work to filter into the office of the agency that booked me. I'm hopeful to be out at Laughlin often, but these folks also book Vegas and elsewhere. NO REASON AT ALL for me not to work any of those places, right? I am also hopeful to get better time slots at the comedy venues, which will bring along better paychecks too.
A I said, for now this past week was a success. Until I see results elsewhere I am not sure just how successful it was for me.
