There is no do, there is only try.

We have really tried to get better about taking photographic evidence of our performing exploits. We so enjoy seeing all of our colleagues' rehearsal shots, backstage pictures and amazing performance videos. How is it that after this long we still walk out of every gig saying "Crap! We forgot to take a picture!"?

The other night at a gig, Mel remembered this just before we went on stage. The following are our attempts at taking said picture:

Mel & El know that "mouth open" equals "fun". Oy.

And then they tried to look "dramatic". Oy.

All of this with an image of a phone between our heads because we couldn't organize ourselves to ask one of the twenty people backstage to take it for us. We are a living, breathing example of that Far Side comic with the kid pushing the "Pull" door to the School for the Gifted.

We realize these aren't real problems. (It's not nearly as fun to blog about those!) But we just wanted to share.

We have high hopes that at Gotham Comedy Club on Wednesday we will take a respectable picture of ourselves that includes the marquee. We're setting goals, people. Yoda-style.
