An Evening at SAK Comedy Lab at CityArts Factory, Downtown Orlando



By: Rob Reilly 08/29/2010



I didn't know exactly what to expect as I ascended the stairs to the second floor Eola Capital Loft at CityArts factory, that is the SAK Comedy Lab. My wife and I entered the tiny box office area through an ordinary-looking door on the northeast corner of the intersection of Pine Street and Orange Avenue. The lady behind the ticket-counter checked my reservation and happily directed us up the…

Why Do I Perfer Ponds To Lakes

Why do think I perfer a pond to a lake? Is it the sound the word Pond makes as I utter it? Perhaps it is the onomatopoeia of the word itself. To say the word "POND" I see shallow waters and cattails. I see weeping willows or butterflies; I see ripples crashing against lilly pads. The sound of the word creates images that look as peacful as the air feels exhaling my lungs. My chest goes concave and I relax at the thought of being before a pond. Ahhh. Then again, perhaps it…

We lived a couple of houses down on Fish Ave. from Steve Jordan who…

The Truth about Being Native American

No no no I do not get money for being native american. There is no pot of gold out there for being a red skin. Everytime someone asks me about all the cash I must be getting for my race I want to punch them in the face. Another thing why are so many sports teams named after native americans? Raiders, redskins, what the $%#@&*! Could you imagine a team called the Atlanta asians or the Chicago caucasions!? Seriously I'm not about political correctness but we get no damn respect in this… Continue
