Dude you sound super bitter. You and Rachel from the "We were punk before Summerville was" thread should meet up for coffee.
Charleston, we will stomp into your town and take whoever the hell we want and make them one of our own because WE CAN. WHAT.
This may be the worst attempt at PR I've ever witnessed.
They have written about me, you're missing the whole point, did you really read the post? Is this a knee jerk reaction without thinking about what I'm saying? Think before you post, look at the whole story. I could have sworn I mentioned several other comedians, let me look... ah yes, there they are, plain to see. What is it about truth that you don't like? KeepinItReal my ass!! Keepinitfalse more like it.
"I don't want to sound bitter...."
You totally sound bitter. Begging the City Paper to write about you isn't going to get them to write about you.
Is it weird that when I see CHARLESTONION I see Charles T. Onion? is it just me? Oh, wait. this article is about Dusty. I love him. I have a pan named after him. Dus T Pan..
Yes, you have to move, and like you said you are a staple to our scene here. So STAY!
Ahhhh Sh*T!! You mean I have to move to Nashville!!
Brian, the staff pick said "Best Comedian Nashville stole from us" or something like that so I assume all of the comics were local and have moved to Nashville to be considered for this award?
I do have a question Elizabeth. Do you ever watch any other comedians in the Low Country or just the one's downtown? Roland Jay Moore, Sean Jones, Dave Evans and myself started doing comedy (and we all live here BTW) here over 20 years ago. We all have performed here locally, everywhere from Mt. P., James Island, Downtown, Summerville, Goose Creek, West Ashley, North Charleston as well as all over The USA ( I performed for the troops in Japan last June) Jay is Princess Cruise Lines top comic, Sean has been seen in movies & TV, Dave not only performs but has had one of the biggest comedy competitions (Put your money where your mouth is) this area has ever seen. He had comics come from Fla., NC, Mrytle Beach, Ga. I just did a show at Ms. Rose's in November and they had to turn people away, I've got it on video!! I'm sorry, I don't want to sound bitter and I like Dusty, he has been a middle act for me several times (that means he opened up the show and I followed him) and I've judged several competitions he's been in and won, I voted for him. I just think it's lazy to just put his name out there again when guys such as the folks I mentioned have been making people laugh in the area for years get overlooked just because they're not in the right clique. I'll talk about this on my radio show and in my WEB series that shows what life is like being a road comic called "BTS On the Road" (24 episodes so far, shooting 25 later this month). How about we show support for ALL the great comedians in our area and not just the peninsula crowd or maybe they should distribute the City Paper only in the downtown area where they should be limited to getting they're sponsors from? As for me, I don't care, I live local, but I'm worldwide.
Ken Lam Appointed New CSO Music Director
The collection of lion pictures is because the restaurant opened in 1972 as the Hungry Lion Restaurant, owned by Paul Kemerle and Jack Sewell. Paul sold his interest to Jack in 1992 and Jack renamed it but kept the pictures and theme.
I'm sure it didn't make the record because Elise is not near the talent Darius is, and the song was probably weak. You're article is not fair to Mr. Rucker, and I'm sure the only reason he did it in the first place was to be a nice guy, and this is what you serve up. Get some class City Paper. + She's no hometown girl! Yank
I really think they need to add some categories for next year. I don't know if all the sponsors were covered with this years.
Looks like someone didn't get an invite.
Just so you know, the Readers' nominated the Best Of party and then voted for the Best Of party. The City Paper did not, and would not, select our own party. That would be lame. Like spending $100,000 to create a committee to search for a new college president only to pick the guy you were going to pick in the first place.
^ "for an event that is not even a party, it’s an award reception." Dali, that's the most asinine thing you could possibly say about the Best of party. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.
Blowing Smoke Up Your Own Ass
I was going through the seemingly endless categories in the Best Of issue and stopped in my tracks when I saw the winner for Best Party of 2013. You've got to be kidding, right? Not only did Charleston City Paper allow their own event (Best of Charleston Party) to be in the running but selected it as Best Party of 2013. This reeks of the nepotism and insider elitism that has permeated this town for centuries.
While any legitimate organization excludes family, employees and any affiliate having an interest in the contest from participating in contests that organization is conducting for impartiality, City Paper cavalierly tosses propriety aside to go through the pretense of competition only to award itself.
Now, if there was a category for SELF-AGGRANDIZING OPPORTUNITSTS; that would have been the appropriate place for City Paper to anoint themselves as Best Of.
There are so many great parties that organizers spend long months putting together who were dismissed and, for an event that is not even a party, it’s an award reception. All of the rightful nominees got shafted. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Disappointed but not surprised
Are you sure it was a xylophone? I usually see him with a glockenspiel...
Geoff has Devin on staff, who is an artist, along with being a superb cosmetologist. She needs to paint for you.
