The Greater Boston Comedy Relay
Our very own pen-pal Kevin Hall wrote us an uncharacteristically genuine email yesterday asking us to plug this event fighting cancer with comedy on April 11th. We've obliged for two reasons: 1. Kevin Hall will more likely than not be in the news one day (for good or bad, we still don't really know what he's all about) and I don't want to be sitting at home knowing that our email relationship in college went awry before we let him know how much we all appreciated his hatred. His alliance might be needed later on in life. Kevin might be a mild version of Steve Buscemi in Billy Madison for all we know (that's a joke Kev, we don't actually think you're violent). He's a mystery in our eyes and goddamn it we love it. 2. Most importantly, all kidding aside, we're plugging this because Kevin's got a good point: cancer sucks, and this seems like a unique way to raise money to support the cause. The event's gonna be a good time, and while we're not gonna sit here and encourage everyone to go and heckle Kevin, we're certainly not gonna sit here and discourage it either (Kev, we make joke again). Kevin and this blog have had an up-and-down relationship: he hates us as people and we love him as a hater. But despite our differences (and the fact that we've never met), we feel compelled to grant Kevin his wish and publicize this. Because if there is one thing that arch-enemies can agree on, it's that cancer sucks. I also gotta respect his resilience. Not many people love their grind as much as this guy does. He's the closest thing I've ever known to a chafeophile (lover of chafe). I literally know nothing about the event other than the information in this link, but that's what the internet is for. If anyone has interest, stopping by to help the cause would be a respectable thing, and it'd be greatly appreciated by everyone whose lives have been affected by cancer.
