It's been a crazy couple of weeks. But must admit I've been busy playing gigs.
In spite of the economy, I've been getting calls tp play. Hip-Hip-Hurray!
This past week I played out at Lake Las Vegas for about 350 people and
then on Saturday night I played at the spectacular Four Seasons Hotel on the strip.
Did you know this? I didn't even know this and I live in Las Vegas! This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas, but there
are more Catholic Churches than casino's. Not surprisingly, some worshippers at
Sunday service will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.
Since they get chips from from many different casino's, the churches have devised
a method to collect the offereings.
The church send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monostary for sorting
and then the chips are taken to the casino's of origin and cashed in. This is all done by
Chip Monks! Come on laugh, you didn't even see it coming!
In these unusual economic times, it's more important than ever to find things
to laugh at and just have fun. I got this short article from my friend Robert Teodosio
in Connecticut. Thank you Robert.

Have a Great Day,
My good friend, legendary Comic Jim Wiggins came to town this last week at
the " Comedy After Hours" Comedy Club in Las Vegas Nevada, inside the
Fitzgeralds Hotel and Casino down town Las Vegas.
Jim is also known as "The Last Hippie in America"... www.LastHippie.com
Yes, Jim Wiggins thinks pot should be legal! Jim magnificently weaves his
words through his masterful story telling and shares why pot should be legal.
Owner of the Club, Bob Burke gave me permission to film my good friend.
When you do come to Las Vegas, you gotta check out this comedy room.
It's Fantastic! www.ComedyAfterHours.com
Listen and watch to this comedy clip at your own risk.
Jim comes from a similar school of comedy that the late George Carlin came from.
There are curse words in this clip. It is pretty tame compared to what is
out there these days. If you are easily offended...
PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN or WATCH THIS VIDEO CLIP.
Sorry about the shakey camera work. My tripod broke just before the
show and so I hand held for 50 minutes...
When you are finished watching this clip, watch the 5 minute interview
I did with Jim about George Carlins Passing. It's touching...
And Please feel free to post a comment about this video clip...
