Made it out to Mountains & Molehills at the Free Times on Tuesday night. What a treat it is to have daylight after 5 pm 🙂 even better, still daylight when I left at 8. Host Dan Curtis Thompson put tighter another night of fun, funny and skilled performers.
The open stage is often as educational as it is entertaining. I learned never take your eyes of the road while cat-calling a babe’s hot ass; ‘I have a lot of trouble relating to kids my age because I am more racist.’ ‘In the world of Pokemon there are no chickens or other animals.’ (are they vegan)’My breath gets shallow like water nothing can swim in.’ Straight guys often get girlfriends just so their parents won’t think they are gay.
First feature was Daniel Williston with a classic story teller story set in Moose Jaw – ‘the land is so flat people can watch you run away for two days.’ He incorporated horror movie tropes: the scarecrow that appears then disappears, a thick rolling fog, a tinted-windshield car that follows you, mysterious messages from led read outs – into a tale of drunken growing up in a small town.
Next up what Camille Côté with more of a stand up set around a break up than story telling – no complaints from the audience though. The break up was like a very slow-mo car crash, so slow she could have got out and walked away with no trouble but stuck in any way. ‘No amount of 11 11 wishes will make a bad relationship better.’ Funny without relying on punchlines it was a strong set.

Last feature Kyle Lucey – must have enjoyed Camille’s cock size jokes as he had a bit of trouble ‘adjusting’ himself before he started. Another more stand-up, than a story telling, set, themed around growing up poor in Canada. ‘Has anyone here lived in a van?’ Loopy logic held the set together, for me, and again I like comics who don’t need punch lines to get laughs. ‘I need a woman in my life. Be my mom.’ Another strong set.
Dan’s pic of me on the open stage:
A Walk in the Park
I was walking though the park
eyes open for dog shit
I turn a corner and there is this couple
female splayed on a picnic table
a man on his knees between her legs
she moaning pushing his head deeper
his hairy ass bare in the sun
her eyes catch mine
I can’t tell if the expression
is pleasure invitation dare
or what the fuck are you looking at
he stands and half turns
cock flashing in crisp light
she licks her lips
I keep going that image in my mind
his jeans crumpled below his knees
her panties around one ankle
their faces gleaming beaming
what brought them to that place and time
were they walking along
so aroused they had to have each other
or a couple who needed an audience
to take them to another level of orgasm
or was she a working girl
and didn’t care where she made a buck
when I doubled back
all that remained
was a pair of panties
