Watch: Don’t You Hate Going To The Airport
I love comedy. I really admire the talent of great stand-up comics. I think what they do is incredible. On the radio, I do what I do in a closed-door studio. I never see the audience. Stand-up comedians have to make people laugh while they are looking at them right in the eye. It’s do or die. It takes guts, and great comedic chops.
So, I thought I’d share some great stand-up comedy with you every Monday. Why? Because it’s Monday!! Everyone could use a good laugh on Monday. So, here we go with our next installment.
I don’t know about you, but I really dread traveling from airports nowadays. The entire process is mind-numbing. From long lines at the check-in counter, then going through security, then waiting for your always late flight, waiting on the runway for your turn to take-off, the cramped seats, the way everyone jumps up at the same time after arrival to try and be the first one off the plane, then waiting for your luggage to arrive, and finally finding a ride to your destination. Just one long, boring line after another.
And lately, with all of the canceled flights due to inclement weather, or not having enough pilots or crew members to staff the jets, it is even worse. After the ordeal of getting to the airport and finding a place to park, it seems like its a crap-shoot as to whether or not your flight will actually leave.
Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco has a funny routine about the check-in process and then going through security. Hey, if we have to travel nowadays, at least we can laugh at what we put ourselves through. Enjoy!
