I performed at Husson College. Husson sits right next to the Bangor airport, so I didn’t get to see a great deal of Bangor, but flying in, it was beautiful. I’d never seen so many pine trees! I hope I get to go back sometime and see a bit more of the area.
Bangor is the hometown of Stephen King. My host at Bangor kindly took me by the house!
He had a pretty cheesy yet slightly spooky gate.
My hotel was connected to the airport, which was kind of funny considering the hotel was larger than the airport! Here’s the view out of my window:
At Husson, the crowd was excellent! Huge turnout and very receptive, warm people. They laughed at all the right stuff and stayed with me on a couple new things!
Thanks to everyone in Maine for a great show. They were so hospitable there! I’m lucky I got back through all the nasty winter weather. Yesterday was a LONG travel day.
Coming up, I’ve got Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. My show there is dedicated to Banana Awareness Week. Then its off to perform for my great friends at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
I’m having a blast this spring performing and I think it really shows in my act. I hope so, anyway.
Peace, love and baggage claims,
