So this year the holiday weeks couldn’t have fallen on much worse dates. Xmas Eve on Saturday, means 2 or 3 shows are cancelled for those weeks for comics. With NYE on Saturday, no chance for double dipping that week.
2012 calendar shows that NYE will be on a Monday, meaning there is a chance of playing a comedy club the week before and still getting the biggest night (paycheck) of the year 2 days later. This is a job and that is the way you begin to think when you’ve been in the biz for awhile. So the calendar is doing a favor in 2012. Rejoice and Happy Holidays.
