Premise, Punch, Moi

It’s nice being a guest on other people’s things. All I have to do is answer questions. No coming up with interesting angles, no research, no cursing my WordPress theme for not justifying images the way I want (stupid damn effing…).

Particularly nice was this offer from my friend Joel Buxton, who does a blog about standup called Premise, Punch, Tag. I responded to his call-out for accounts of that “first time” on stage, and it somehow grew into a q&a which you can find here.

Blog synergy? We have it!
