Bring on the Vegas Good Times, Baby!
I am going to Vegas to see the man himself--that's right--you guessed it--DON RICKLES! Rickles has always been one of my favorite comics ever. One of my very first performances was an improv thing I did during some hazing activities that I had to go through as a Pledge at Theta Chi, the Animal House-like fraternity I joined in 1978 while attending San Jose State. We had to play a character, so I did Rickles and improvised big-time, just off the top of my head. It was a big hit and made me realize that I could probably one day make a living as a standup comic, which never really happened, but it's a nice story, isn't it? Anyway I am going to Vegas, baby--and taking advantage of some great deals on Las Vegas hotels
