Great News

Someone other than Buck Morton or Jerry Goff (excuse me … DOCTOR Jerry Goff) will be emceeing at some of the NQC this year. Brian Lester is, it seems, slated to thread sets together on Monday and Tuesday night. This is a fantastic development - emphasis on the “fan” of Monday and Tuesday night who will benefit immeasurably from having someone as genuinely funny and as capable on stage as Brian Lester. It’s baffling that the NQC board has taken this long to rethink its logic of using emcees who tell tired, unfunny jokes; refer on stage ostentatiously to their Mercedes Benz; and generally grate on one’s nerves after an hour or so. Perhaps this experiment will expand in years to come so that by, say, 2007 the full-house crowds on Friday and Saturday night can enjoy Brian Lester’s first-rate showmanship and stagecraft as an emcee.
