Charles: yo so i did the LES Murder Mystery show with then Tenement Museum yesterday and some guy runs up to me in the middle of it and starts yelling at me to get out of the neighborhood
so i stay in character and make a joke about him and the people laugh and hes like “I heard that! I heard you all laughing at me!”
what did you say??
Charles: i dont remeber
i have a line about how people go poo in the street
and i think i said he was one of the biggest pooers
and then he called me and asshole and wouldn’t leave till we moved down the street
and was yelling its 2009 until we left
me: was he just crazy person?
Charles: no he was a hipster
Charles: yeah, he was mad cuz “they’re always doing something on this street, shooting movies, its not a stage its where people live.”
but of course he would never say anything to the people shooting the movie, hell just interrupt the live theatre show being run by the Tenement Museum, those horrible people who are ruining the neighborhood…sorry for the rant
me: no its hilarious
its just out of hand
i mean great experience for you i guess
Charles: at the time i thought it was funny, but the more i think about the angrier i get at that guy…
p.s. he lives in my building, i saw him go in after he yelled at us
me: NO FING WAY
and you were like…see you later
Charles: no but i wonder if hell recognize me
I was in a full on 1870’s costume
me: but what are you going to do!
Charles: ill be cool, but if he says anything im going to tell him to man up and yell at the huge movie studios that shut down the streets and stop you from waling home instead of events run by the tenement museum whose sole purpose is to enrich the neighborhood and educate the people about how awesome it is
i regret using the word awesome
me: i think we should just dress up in full 1870 gear
and wait outside the door with lead pipes
and then sing an old irish drinking song to him
Charles: and then?
me: thats all
Charles: no hitting with the pipes?
me: well use the pipes as dancing batons
thats a bit!
write it down
me: thats not a bit
talking about bits is a bit
also its already technically “written down”
Charles: i know, but saying its a bit, is too inside of a bit
Charles: its an inside joke with comedians
to be like thats a bit
you wouldn’t understand
