But What I Really Want to Do Is Direct
Interesting piece on Bobcat Goldthwait. He is directing and writing some interesting movie projects, and his standup now is just to finance his movies. Indeed, he seems to be reluctant to do standup. Which is too bad, as he absolutely killed at the Just for Laughs festival. We saw him at the "All-Star Gala" where only Louis CK came close, and he blew away John Cleese, Paul Rodriguez, Louie Anderson, Caroline Rhea, etc. He combined material with some great reactions to the evening's events. Just a great performance--best of the fest, including the other shows we saw.
