The story...

Well, here it is.

I went to see stuttering John, Nick DiPaolo and the touch tone terrorist (Actually Terrorizing Telemarketers Jim Florentine) guy (''I've got mail!'') at the Punchline in San Francisco. John wasn't all that funny, but Nick was hilarious.

After the show, I waited for awhile so that I could meet John. It was quite a sad site because everyone was swarming stuttering John, and Nick DiPaolo was all by himself in the corner. He looked desperate for someone to come and talk to him. So I spent a few minutes telling Nick how great his act was. As the crowd started to thin out, I walked over and met stuttering John. He was in rare form. He had probably drank about 15 Amstel Lights, and had a cigarette dangling from his lip. A woman came over to meet him, and his eyes just lit up. She was pretty hot. I heard John say: ''Oh my god, you are so fucking beautiful! Give me a hug!'' The woman's husband was standing right behind her, but the husband just started laughing as his wife hugged John. Then it was my turn: I shook his hand and told him what a big fan I was of the show (how original). I told him that I'd been to Scores the week prior, and he replied: ''Isn't it fucking great?'' I then took a couple of pictures with him. He was really cool. He autographed everything people gave him. He also stayed until the last fan left.
