Carousing with John Roy, Visiting with Dan Kaufman

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
The Bastion found itself out drinking too late and enjoying some heavy shop talk with comedian John Roy night before last at Ricochet's in the lovely Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. John is home for an extended visit and tour, and had many, many things to say about the business of comedy, the state of comedy in Chicago, and why some very talented comedians need to take certain logistical steps to maintain their career momentum. It was really interesting, and the Bastion was promised a full brain pickin' in the very near future.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingYesterday afternoon we caught up with Dan Kaufman, somewhere in this crazy world-of-its-own known as Caesar's Palace, in Las Vega$, NV. He's out here for six weeks, and we're seriously wondering if he's left the poker table even once. We make this comment by way of complimenting his astonishing talents at the table: Dan was recently featured on Ultimate Poker Challenge.

We've also spotted The Second City outpost here in LV NV, and might just take a break from bachelorette festivities long enough to explore that club and others on the Strip. (Yes, the Bastion reported from two cities in the same night...we're a global phenomenon!)
