Comedian Danny Bevins has a hard time following current events, at least on cable news. “When I get my news, I’ve got to read it,” he explains. “That’s the only way I can retain it. I can’t watch the news because there’s too much stuff going on. They’ve got the dude talking, and then the crawl and some other stuff going on, and I can’t do all that. If I try I’m totally screwed.
People will be like ‘Dan, did you see the news?’ And I’ll be like ‘Yeah. Saddam Hussein apparently said that he bet on baseball?’” Still, stand-up beats working for a living.
Bevins thinks having a job is the worst. “You gotta know your job,” he says. “You gotta know everything about your job. And you have to know everybody else’s job around you. Not so you can be a better employee, but so you can say, ‘Hey, that’s not my fucking job! I don’t do that. That’s Bill’s job.’” Bevins performs at Go Bananas Thursday-Sunday. $8-$12.
