If you're my Facebook friend you've already seen this, but I want to share it here as well so everyone gets to see what a total a-hole I am.
Last night at the G-Spot Comedy Show, my friend Lynn and I were not just the only white comics on the bill, but the only white people in whole the room. Lynn was the first comic up and she killed until she made a reference to The Bible, when everyone got silent. Gaynelle, the host of the show, jokingly called out, "Lynn, these are all black folk here--you can't be messing with The Bible!" Everyone had a laugh and Lynn continued to deliver a hilarious set.
I was up next. I took the stage and deadpanned, "Wow, I've never performed for a room full of black people. Um, let's see... OK," and then continued with, "Jesus, Malcolm X, and Sammy Davis, Jr. walk into a bar..."
Fortunately, everyone cracked up. Good thing, or I'd be posting this from my hospital room.
