"Insecurity and realism? Are you guys still here? Have you seen humility? C'mon, please come back."
I follow Rachel HBO on Twitter and for some reason yesterday I decided to reach out to her.
It's a really weird thing to tweet at someone, but happily she responded.
A little closure on an event that didn't even really need closure I guess. This also shows why I'm still hanging out in the middle of the comedy career stream by the way. I should have responded to her text 7 years ago when it happened and said "So weird this happened I just taped "Live at Gotham" and I was at the Comedy Central after party and I thought my night was getting better than it already was." Maybe an LOL even. Or a :) Pretty sure my flip phone didn't have Emoji's. Then she thinks, "Oh that guy I met at the HBO Comedy Festival a few years ago, just taped a Comedy Central thing, good for him" and then when she's producing something she thinks of my name and then...well probably nothing. But that's what you're supposed to do if you're a comedian or a human even. "I don't want to be a bother" isn't a very good career motto, but it's been barely working for me so far so I guess I'll stick with it. I wanted to ask her if she remembered who she was trying to text. I always wondered if it was Gabriel Iglesias. Maybe I'll ask her in 2023.
