So today marked a historical event for me. And by “me” I mean “my mom.” I filmed Law and Order: Criminal Intent today. This fulfills one of my mothers greatest dreams for me which was to be on her favortie show on TV. And by “favorite” I mean “we watched a Law and Order: Criminal Intent marathon on New Years Eve as a means of counting down.” When I told that to Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe, they looked at me much like the photo to the left. They were confused and maybe a little afraid. I guess its the equivalent of someone saying to me “Hey I watched a video or your stand up and stared at a picture of you for 4 hours until it was midnight and then I celebarted by making noise and setting off miniature explosives! YAY!”
I kept thinking to myself the whole time I was was there that it would be HILARIOUS if there was a real murder on the set of Law and Order. Why would that be funny you ask? I’m tell you. Cuz no one would be able to tell who the real cops are and aren’t. The costumes are very authentic. Its disorienting. It’d be a jumble of actors and real cops and what a Mad Cap Romp ‘twould be! I don’t want anyone to die, but if it resulted in tale of mistaken identity to rvial that of the Bard’s Twelfth Night, PLAY ON!
The highlight of the night though was standing on a pier of Long Island City made to look like an outdoor bar/party in the rain. Outdoors. In the drizzle and wind that got worse as the night went on. And we had to look like we were having fun and not wet and cold. Very nice indeed.
BUT EVEN TO OUTDO THAT, was the wonderful experience of waiting in the rain after I’d been wrapped. I stood with a broken umbrella while 3 cabs looked right at me and passed me by refusing to take me somewhere that is only 10 minute drive away (i had no clue how to get back). I stood and walked around for 45 minutes until a clueless driver picked me up. I mean was what I thinking? Why would I expect them to pick me up? Its not February!
All in all it was a fun experience and I met some good people. I was angry I had to cancel 3 spots tonight including the premiere of my own show (http://comedyisforhumans NULL.com), but Law and Order happens. I’m wet. I’m cold. I’m tired. I just spilled water in my own bed. Great.
