Kansas: Food & Comedy

This phase of my visit here is devoted to rest and relaxation. And food! Boy, can you get beautiful barbecue here. If you’re on a paleontologist diet Kansas is the place for you.

The other thing we did was attend an Open Mike night at the Comedy Club of Kansas City. I have never done this before, but fellow writer John Ordover has shifted over to the performance arts, and the place is only 8 minutes away. So, clearly, I had to go! It turns out that my concentration fades after a martini paired with a couple hours of rapi-fire gags, but it was great to see a vintage style of stand-up. Hold your own, John!
