Last night's Gershwin Hotel show was hopping... my octopus material, hatched over Korean BBQ went swimmingly. I would venture to say no comedian has ever done such brilliant octopus material after Korean BBQ -- ever. Man I adore Korean food. The kim chee brings me back to happy childhood memories of eating the insanely spicy pickled cabagge at my best friend Yuh Suhn's house. But wow, Korean joints have cornered the market on condiments of excitement! Plus, how can you not love asking about what a sidedish is and getting the response, "Like a snail."
I said, "Like a snail?"
The waiter said, "Yeah. Like a snail. But not snail. Like a snail. Seafood... Like a snail."
I ended up not trying the like a snail and I almost regret it.
But tonight is no time for lingering in the past over Korean-meals-gone-by! No! Tonight is the big shoe...
