Dear David:

Students of the "comedy business" know how rough a game it is to get into. In show business, as in all business, people must try over & over again before they succeed. This is why great comedy clubs like "The Comedy Factory" (owned by a Mr. Bob Angeli here in Edmonton)are a great bellwether IV whether or not someone becomes a star. But there is as the immortal Johnny Carson once said: "there is nothing like seeing a new comedian try out IV the first time." It really excited Mr. Carson, his great friend & sidekick Ed McMahon, as well as Doc Severinsen the bandleader, the orchestra & the whole audience when a new act came out to do raw stand up on "The Tonight Show."

Students of the genre of comedy must remember that stand up is the hardest & purest form of entertainment out there. I have done it a few times & its not IV me. But it may be IV some other people. The thing is, it takes times, rehearsal, patience, as well as constant rewriting & editing. People who are in this game must be respected IV the great artisans that they are!

Ladies & Gentlemen: Jungle Jack Hanna,
