For those of you that saw the awesome story about Drew Jarvis, the boy with Down Syndrom in Akron Ohio who just loves my show/dvd, here is the happy follow up story to that. If you have not seen the first video please watch it now here .
Isnt that awesome!??! . Well I kept in touch with Drew's Mom Shannon and when I got out to Ohio I made plans to meet Drew!! So I had Shannon bring Drew to the Comedy Club one day while I was setting up, along with his little brither Alex. Drew and Alex spent some time with me meeting my birds and seeing all my magic stuff, we also rehearsed what would be Drew's big Stage Magic Debut. see the video at the end of this blog. I then took the boys to McDonald's for lunch and it was so cool Drew is used to watching me on his tv every day so, me being there he kept reaching over and running his hand down my arm or hugging me, it was so cool. He must have asked me at least 50 times! "You the Eggman?" LOL, "Yeah Drew I'm the EGGMAN" that's his favorite routine of mine!! (mine too BTW).
SO i performed every night at the Funny Stop comedy club and then came Saturday , time for the family show i do there in the afternoon so people who have seen me all week can bring their kids. IT WAS PACKED!! I had done radio shows telling the story about Drew etc, and then the time came for the floating table and for Drew to help me!! the crowd went wild! The family sent me this video via text message so its poor quility. I was waiting on a disc in the mail but there has been a delay due to some personal family issues and i wanted to get this out so now go watch the REAL magic of Drew Jarvis RIGHT HERE talk about doing selfless acts that make ya feel good about what ya do!!! MAN!!!! Awesome!!!
I left the FLorida Keys about a month ago and began working my way to Cape Cod. I spent two weekends in NC and had a bunch of great shows, I also booked a couple more there for my way home in Sept. My second stop was Akron Ohio where I headlined The Funny Stop Comedy Club for a week. I like this gig, it starts out slow: One show Tuesday-Thurs night , then two on Friday night and three shows on Saturday including a family friendly show in the afternoon. For those of you wondering , yes I got to meet Drew , The boy from my Michael Trixx Impersonator video. It was great and I will be doing a special blog just about that when I get the video footage I am awaiting in the mail...
