Tragedy & Comedy

At The NAACP Image Awards with a young Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon. Guess who stood out? It was surreal hangin’ with Cheech & Chong. At age 15 I could recite every word of Big Bambu & Los Cochinos We all look the same! Please always remember the night we shared (what the hell does that mean?)- Kevin James To Jerry, Thanks for Bringing me  to Alaska!    -  Louis CK

48 hours after

the tragic fire at

The Blue Loon,

the nomadic T.J.

Miller show tore

up the Theater

in Pioneer Park

last night. Sold

out and then

some (just ask

the dozens who

gladly sat in the

isles to be part of the special evening). A lot of laughs and

a lot of love. T.J. couldn’t have been funnier and nicer as

he donated a sizable amount of his hot sauce sales to

rebuilding the Blue Loon. Open Cash Levy crushed and

comedian Jamie Lissow was in town and hung. Thanks to

all who made the move of venues possible on such short

notice. Mayors Matherly and Ward, the Police Department,

Donnie and all at Pioneer Park, Rick Mensik and everybody

who helped cut

through the

massive red tape

in less than one

working day. To


Glenner (who

also rocked),

Jonathan at AUP,



all it’s sister

stations, Amanda

Hanson, Natalie

Nuebauer, Trish, The Blue Loon, Gary Black, Anna, Ryan

and Mason and ton more, thanks for making Fairbanks such

a cool place to live. And to the people that came out to

laugh and support, thanks.
