The Not So Super 8 Of Appleton, WI

I’m on the road. Like most comedians, I love it, I hate it, I can’t live without it…

This is my last stretch of college shows for the 2010-2011 school season. I’m all over Wisconsin this week and it’s cold and rainy. Here’s the deal with my college shows: 99% of the time, the school chooses and pays for my hotel. I have been put up in everything from scary truck stop motels in rural Pennsylvania where I thought I was going to be raped and murdered to five star hotels with Egyptian cotton sheets and town car pick up at the airport. 

Last night, I was in Appleton. WI and the Fox Valley Technical College (where I had a fun show, btw) put me up in the local Super 8. I’ve stayed in more Super 8s than any human should have to endure in a lifetime and I can honestly say that there is no such thing as a great Super 8, but every once in a while, you can get a tolerable Super 8 if you are lucky enough to get one that is newly constructed. Other than that…forget it.

I thought I’d share a little bit more of my continued life of glamour on the road. Don’t be jealous…

OK, I’m not particularly proud of this moment on the road, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Ever drive so much that you feel ready to Thelma and Louise it off of the next cliff, but you can’t because you’re in central Iowa and there aren’t any cliffs? Just dead cornfields for miles and miles and miles. There’s not even a bridge or a hill? Just DEAD CORN and this is the 4th time in 5 days that you’ve had to drive back and forth for hours on the same freaking corn lined highway because that’s the stupid order you’re shows got booked in?! Ever been there? I have. Earlier today, as a matter of fact.

My deepest apologies to all George Michaels fans everywhere… especially those in Iowa

Comedian Amy Anderson On The Road Part III: Snow Storm!!
Greetings from Marshall, MN – the southwestern part of the state! A big chunk of the Midwest got hit with a snowstorm overnight and lucky me, it includes all the areas I’m currently in and supposed to be driving through today and tomorrow.

When I checked forecasts before leaving CA, it didn’t look like this kind of weather was going to happen, so I didn’t bring any gloves or a hat or even my regular winter jacket (smart, Anderson) but I’m a true Minnesotan at heart. I’ve had my cheap hotel waffle and a hot beverage and I’m ready to brush off that car and head to South Dakota! Nothing can stop my comedy. (Except maybe a Krispy Kreme donut.) (Or a little more snow.)
