Aug 28th, 2014

Another night at the once a month event at Freeman’s Little New York on Dutch Village Rd. The show tonight didn’t look like it was going to happen, but we ended up with a tidy little crowd and the show went well. Given there were more comedians than there were audience, but the fact we…

At Bearly’s, which is now becoming a once a month thing for me due to work schedules and other shows, and tonight was an example of what happens at Bearly’s. The last two times I have been here, I got a tremendous response, and it was what I expected tonight, but that’s why Bearly’s is…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 10

Day 10; The last day of the tour. I’m sad to see it go, but happy I got to be a part of it. We were out in Porter’s Lake for the last night, and I was sad to see such a small crowd of about 35, so I felt kind of let down….until they…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 9

Day 9 of the tour and we’re back in Halifax, and back at Brewsters. I’d like to say that this show was an improvement over the last time we were here, but for me it was but for the other comics not so much.   You see, I’m lucky that with me singing so loudly,…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 8

Day 8 of the tour, and the second (and last) show in New Brunswick. I’ve only been to Saint John twice before, and I really didn’t get to see much of it either time. This wasn’t any different, we spent most of the time in the Hotel, there was terrible rain coming down the whole…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 7

Day 7 and we travelled into Sussex NB for the first of two shows out of Nova Scotia. The place was nice and quiet, and there was a nice room waiting for me that I could take a nap in. But I couldn’t, as much as I wanted to. I was too excited for the…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 6

Day 6 of the tour, and of all the shows I can point to this one being the one that stands out as not being a good one. The people who were there to laugh, I salute you, you were great and thanks for being there and enjoying the show. The ones who didn’t show…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 5

We drove out to the Whitetail Pub & Grille, which as I mentioned before I think is a funny name for a pub that doesn’t serve food. So why is there a grille in the name? Sheesh. But there was a crowd to hear some comedy, and we had a job to do so we…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 4

Day 4 of the tour, we are at Brewsters and there isn’t much of a crowd…well, coming off two shows with 140 and 300 respectively, and then 30 on Saturday, about 60 isn’t a huge letdown but it isn’t a large crowd either. But we soldiered on performing for the people who did show up…

Mike MacDonald Tour 2014 Day 3

Day 3 of the tour, we travelled back from Sydney and returned to Halifax. Crimestoppers had asked Marc that I not perform, and despite the fact that I had written new material so that I could be added back on the roster, I decided to opt out instead. I figured there was enough comedians on…
