Hopefully, you’ve followed me on twitter @GREGMORTONCOMIC because for the last 48 hours, running around Montreal at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Tonight was Gala night with the Muppets and it was in a word, EXTRAORDINARY! It made me wanna quit what I’m doing and join the muppets.
The energy in the theatre was pure bliss. I mean, c’mon! Who doesn’t love the Muppets? They bring back so many great memories. I won’t spoil it for anyone who watches the television show; either here in Canada or Australia, but you’re in for a treat! Hilarious muppet sketches, surprise appearances from all your favourite Muppets and a great line up of comedians.
*My favourite dressing room moment: Jim Breuer doing Richard Pryor on the Muppets gala show!
*Highlight of the show: DAMN NEAR EVERY-FREAKIN-THING!
*Highlight of my life: Meeting Kermit the Frog
*Oh, and BTW: I think I had a pretty good set.
