and i thought my day sucked

Last night on Last Comic Standing Ralphie May went up on the new last comic standing series. Up to his performance I’d been thinking he looked completely conceited and arrogant, not smiling at anything, not clapping for anyone, and generally looking as if he had much better things to do.

As Ralphie May walked on stage, he had his head down and he took his time to get to the mike even though his two minute window was slipping away, as if he knew a sniper was waiting for him to just reach the microphone. When he finally got to the mike, he announced, “My Father’s name was Winston May, and yesterday he died of Cancer.” He followed that with two of his father’s favorite jokes and walked off to a standing ovation.

Mad props to Ralphie for even showing up.
