In the world of entertainment there are some breaks. A few brands that just were in the right place at the right time and caught onto something big. For the rest of them, there is a lot of hard work and effort put forth in making success happen. Sometimes the two worlds collide. Top of the Bottom Pile has received the opportunity to audition for one of the most prominent clubs in New York City Comedy, The Comic Strip Live.
This is, with no explanation needed, a great honor. The likes of Eddie Murphy, Jerry Seinfeld and Louis C.K. have passed through those hallowed doors on 2nd Ave in the Upper East Side of Manhattan and pretty soon you will be able to add us to that list. To say we are nervous might be an understatement, but then again, no matter how long you’ve been doing what you love to do if you don’t feel a little bit of nervousness in that pit of your stomach right before, perhaps you are in the wrong business.
Aside from the obvious benefits we can reap from this audition, we are looking forward to the experience and the relationship we will make with this club along the way. Just hanging out there has become a favorite pastime of ours, and we are looking forward to the business and personal aspects of this relationship as it flourishes. What started as a seed planted will soon become as symbiotic as two brands can be. Wish us luck, and as always…
