early 80’s

We used to go to the open mic nights in 82 and 83. My girlfriend Christine and I and whoever we could drag along. Always sitting in the front row, we would watch Evan Davis, Paula, Jeremy and Pearl all do their thing. I remember Chris Titus just starting out. One night Robin Williams came in to do a drop in and asked Christine what she wanted to do. She said, “act”. Robin brought her onstage and he went to the back and played a casting director. One night Evan Davis pulled out a gun from a purse. Remember the car that drove through the front door?

    I remember the car that drove through the door. I was the doorman that night, and was sitting right there! I can even give you details of the guy that did it (though I don’t know why). His name was Bob Bascom and he drove a dark green Honda Civic with Oregon plates. I think Rick Reynolds was emceeing that night. Miraculously, all the shattered glass went flying down the walkway/aisle inside the club, and no one was hurt.
