Stuffing our faces
From time to time a comedian, who works anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour a night four nights a week, needs a break from it all. So, that is what I did. Michael Kosta, stand up comedian, joined his extremely dysfunctional family this past Thanksgiving in beautiful Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Away from his family, Michael is a comedic mega-star, staying in the finest hotels (La Quinta), performing in some of the biggest theaters in America (old bowling alleys), and sleeping with the finest women (baby hippos). With his family, Michael is nothing but the runt youngest sibling that the older siblings tease until he cries himself to sleep every night, while sucking his thumb in his Batman pajamas. It's a one piece.
Things move a little slower in the south, and the bellies are a little bigger. I was frustrated to learn that you can't buy alcohol in the state of South Carolina after 12:00pm SATURDAY. Which explains why everyone goes to church on Sunday, just to drink the wine. Amen.
Some exciting news! Recent bookings/updates that all should be aware of:
- Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago, May 15-20, 2007. This is a great club, downtown Chi-town. I expect to see a lot of Kosta fans out there (no, not you Mom).
- Maine Center for Arts, University of Maine. Feb. 13, 2007. I've never been to Maine. I'm excited. Hopefully they speak english there.
- HBO/Aspen Comedy Festival has invited me to the "Executive Callbacks" in New York City. Once I get the details, I will make sure to post them.
Below are some photos from the trip. Enjoy:
Nothing like a hot chick in a tennis skirt. Advantage Kosta!
A family bike ride minus half the family. Seconds later Kristy crashed into us both.
The four biggest losers on earth.
I've got a corporate gig this weekend and then it's back to the clubs next week. Updates have been made on the "Bio" section and soon I'll be selling t-shirts and stickers so keep coming back.
Now go in peace.
