USCAF - Day Three

Today was a super-long day. Luckily, I’ve been sleeping pretty well. The consensus from the rest of the comics was the exact opposite. Nerves maybe. Nine o’clock call time for the rehearsal. Another run-through off-stage to get the timing set for the show. Lots of tech set-up going on all day. The roadies for “Bowling for Soup”, the band for the show, were there setting up and doing a sound-check. The band ended up not even making it for dress rehearsal. It was still too windy in Aspen for planes to land, so they were sent back to Denver and had to take a bus. After lunch, one last tech run-through to make sure everything was going to run smoothly for the show. We went back to the hotel to get showered and changed, then back for make-up call at 8:00. The show went really well… from what we could tell. We didn’t have a monitor in the green room, but got updates from each of the comics as they came back. HBO hosted the after-party, which was a blast. How could it not be, though, when HBO is picking up the tab.
