Last night we went to our comedy show date night! I’ve been waiting for this moment since Christmas when Match presented me with tickets to see Jon Dore at Helium in Portland. Watching stand-up comedy was one of my favorite things to do in college. I used to go watch my aspiring comic friends perform at open mics, and I love seeing anything from big headliners like Dana Carvey, to the comic contests for up and coming comedians.
I love to laugh, and I have always wanted to share that with Match. He’s never really been interested in comedy, and didn’t think he’d like it. When he got us tickets, I knew we’d have a good time.
Not only did he spring for reserved seats, we managed to get front row!
We had such a great time! Jon Dore was hilarious. At one point he made a chicken butt joke, and we were dying. Match had joked about wearing the Guess What Chicken Butt shirt I got him for Christmas. Talk about a missed opportunity!
After the show, we were both starving. We walked down a block and ended up finding a corral of food trucks, with tents and picnic tables with fires. Food truck food is delicious, especially after a couple of adult beverages, late at night.
It was such a great date night. Match said he loved it, and he would definitely go again. I am so glad I can share my love of comedy with my guy. We need more nights like this, where we try new things together.
Do you like comedy shows? When’s the last time you tried something new for date night?
