Close Encounters of the Jon Kind
March 20, 2004
I went with my boyfriend
to see Jon at the Orpheum in Boston. We got our tickets the second they went
on sale and were so excited!! Once March 20th rolled around, we gleefully headed
to Boston. We hit some traffic (damn the Big Dig) but still got there wicked
early. We walked around for a while, then went into the theater at 7:00. Our
seats were really good-- just a few rows back and to the left a little bit.
It took forever for everyone to get seated, but the show finally started at
7:45 or so.
This weird guy came over
the system and said that whole speech about no smoking, drinking, yada yada
yada. Then, the moment we had all been waiting for.... Jon walked out and bowed
to the crowd several times. He started by saying "Trust me, it isn't that
good." He's so funny. I was actually more captivated by his insane manliness
(he's really hairy-but it's good). He's a lot more macho in person, but still
He made some political jokes
about John Kerry and Bush, but he could tell that the crowd was more into sex
jokes. He told us he was writing a poem for his wife, and just needed a word
that rhymes with "sweet pussy." We were all laughing so hard when
he started talking about his dog eating its own crap, and Jon was really good
with sound effects (did you know he can burp on cue? I didn't!). I had to restrain
myself from running up there and grabbing him!
The show ended with him
talking about religion and basically telling everyone to shut the fuck up. My
jaws were hurting I was laughing so hard and my boyfriend almost pissed himself.
I was so sad that it had to end!!
By the way, Jon was wearing
khakis and a blue sweater, and he looked hella good.
