I’m off from the desk job today because The Nite Show is going on a road trip! Today, Danny is taking our ragtag troupe of late night rebels to southern Maine for a taping in Westbrook.
I’ve lived in Maine thirteen years, and I’ve never been down to the Portland area, so I’m very excited.
I’ll be riding down with Joy, Danny’s right hand woman, and Steve, one of my fellow writers. The mere fact that I don’t have to do the driving already makes this an excellent road trip.
It’s snowing a little right now, but the weather shouldn’t be an issue. Of course, we won’t be able to travel with the top down like in the photo, but in my mind, we will be going full convertible.
This trip comes at the perfect time because it’s been a stressful week with Luna being sick. She did have a successful dental procedure yesterday, so the vet hopes that will clear up the sinus issue. Fingers crossed that all is well.
Last year, The Nite Show road trip was to Houlton, which is in northern Maine. We were so close to the Canadian border that I could smell the Canadian bacon and had an overwhelming urge to be incredibly polite.
Just like in Houlton, I will be taking on an additional role today in Westbrook. Not only have I already written a ton of very funny monologue jokes, but I will also be up on stage tonight (just out of camera range if I’m doing it correctly!) in the role of Cue Card Guy.
Luckily, Katie will be working as Floor Manager tonight, just as she did at the Houlton taping. This means, I just follow her around everywhere, and I will always be exactly where Danny needs me to be.
Sure, it makes the taping a little less relaxing when I have to work rather than just sit back and enjoy the show, but it’s also quite a rush to be a part of the production.
Then again, I’ll be able to provide some shots from a whole new perspective.
Hope you all have a great Friday. I know I will have a blast on my road trip!
Follow me on my blog and on Pinterest, and maybe I’ll let you tag along on the next Nite Show Road Trip!
