Fresno, Here I Come

An event called the Heretic’s BBQ sounds like it was made just for me, doesn’t it? I won’t be cooking at this event in Fresno, CA, but I will be speaking at it on Oct. 27. If you’re in the area, please come out. You can get tickets at the link above.

About Ed Brayton

After spending several years touring the country as a stand up comedian, Ed Brayton tired of explaining his jokes to small groups of dazed illiterates and turned to writing as the most common outlet for the voices in his head. He has appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show and the Thom Hartmann Show, and is almost certain that he is the only person ever to make fun of Chuck Norris on C-SPAN.

    Thinking about attending. Fresno’s actually a step UP for me…

    “Heretics’ BBQ” actually sounds like an old, old tradition amongst KKKristians.

    FRESNO?! I am so, so sorry. California’s Central Valley is a very conservative, extraordinarily religious part of the west coast; and Fresno and Bakersfield are its bookends.

    Are you going to be able to keep up on the news while you travel? It would be a pity if you missed gems like this:

    Quitter Palin calls GOP “gutless” for not standing against Obamacare

  • cojjy

    Hmmmm. Looks like I might have to trek up from good ol’ Bakersfield. :)

  • Randomfactor

    Cojjy, if the acronym ASK doesn’t already mean something to you, I may need to talk to you. I’m at hotmail under the same nym.

    And Gregory in Seattle, things here in Bakersfield is bad, but they’s gettin’ better slowly…

    Ed – don’t take a wrong turn at Albuquerque, you might end up in Tasmania! *

    :) Dingo


    * Tasmania, Fresno – it’s difficult to tell the two apart based on the human population (by the sounds of it).

    My tip – If there’s Sarcophilus harrisii, it’s Tassie.

    I’ll be terribly disappointed if they don’t serve baby.

  • Gregory in Seattle

    @Randomfactor #6 – I lived for several years in Visalia. I was even confirmed into the Episcopal Church John-David Schofield, the bishop who bolted when Gene Robinson was consecrated and tried to abscond with millions in church property.

    One of the big reasons why I’m an atheist today.

    Ed, if you come through LA and have any free time, I could arrange an interesting side trip.
