Last Night The Michaels: Showalter and Black Mend a Broken Heart With Music
posted by October 10 at 14:40 PMon
Last night when Michael Ian Black took the stage he noticed a frowning face in the crowd of smiles and applause. He asked the sad girl her name (Sara), and asked her what was wrong (she said her feet hurt). He gave her a dollar for her suffering and carried on with his routine that included making fun of friend and tour partner Michael Showalter, stories about fighting terrorism with blow jobs, and the infamous letter to the first girl he fingered when he was 13 (which he also read at Bumbershoot, if you caught him there).
Later in the show he noticed Sara (Sarah?) was still frowning despite his hour of hilarious material (his stand-up is getting better—I saw him a few years ago and he was a little unreliable).Unable to let it go, Black brought her up on stage and, well, just watch…
(Sorry that the quality isn’t that great, I was a ways back, but you can still hear everything okay and tell what’s going on.)
