Well, I suppose I will begin with my admission, which is obviously the thing
that lured you into reading this post. Well, I won’t keep it from you any
longer, so here it is: I have no idea how many people read this blog. My
website tells me thousands have “subscribed”, but I believe a majority of
to be bots. Usually upon posting an update, I will simply receive a single
email from my Dad, letting me know he got it. So, hello father.
Second, hello to anyone else who is reading this, including my bots and
spam-heads, and most likely my mother. It is September 2020, and I’m
in New York City. I think the emails are done now from corporations letting
us know they have our back for this pandemic, which is why I’ve decided to
reach out at this time finally, to say that yes, I too have our back. I am
keeping things very save and clean here at Joe Zimmerman, and you can
rest assured, I’m looking out for you.
Thirdly, to my surprise, lately there’s been a steady increase in
companies reaching out to me for private Zoom gigs (in the 10-30 minute
performance range) for virtual comedy events. It seems that many people
are looking for ways to spice up their Zoom meetings: be it a quarterly
event, or a cocktail hour, or a meet up with potential clients, and it turns
out a “comedian” is a solid Zoom draw and ice breaker… (also I’m told goats
are popular for this). I’ve had some fun Zoom gigs lately for two tech
companies, a large law-firm and a small law-firm, a financial advisor, a
home-building company, a non-profit, and even a bunch of nannies. I’ve set
up a brick background in my home complete with a tiny stool and fake
microphone. So if you own a company, or run a company, or work at a
company (and especially if you are the CEO of Zoom, Eric Yuan) and you’d
like me in your home, talking to you from my home (with comedy) feel free
to have your people reach out to my people!
In conclusion, that is the end of this blog update!
