My reaction to the Village Voice article is just about entirely positive. If you haven't checked it out already then you could easily remedy that by going to:
I could go on about all the things that I am happy about. My experience with the writer, the photographer, the editor, and the art director were all great. They made me look and sound wonderful and all of them are invited to my birthday party.
The only problem I really have is that I HATE to have my standup material written out. You really cant enjoy a song by just reading the lyrics, so how can you expect to get the complete experience from the printed word when something is usually performed? Others have told me that it comes off nicely, but I stand by the idea that performance is the best way to see those pieces.
