I’m included in this great piece by Jon Potter over at the Brattleboro Reformer about the big storytelling show we’re doing this 4/20 at the famous Latchis Theater in Brattleboro, Vermont! I’m so excited to be doing this show.
Wade was working for comedian and former Saturday Night Live star Colin Quinn as a production assistant, which is a fancy title for go-fer. One day, Wade was sent to pick up Quinn’s dry cleaning, missing the one time the great Jerry Seinfeld came to have lunch with the cast and crew. Realizing Wade had missed the fun, Quinn took pity on him and agreed to watch a videotape of Wade’s open mike act.
Quinn didn’t think much of Wade’s songs, but he liked the stories Wade told in between them. “The stories in between the songs, that’s your gold,” Wade recalls Quinn telling him. “My biggest break was missing Seinfeld.”
