It's getting close to Halloween, which means an avalanche of candy, which brings up the subject of diabetes, which leads us to Stand Up for a Cure, an evening of standup comedy to benefit the Diabetes Research Institute. Did you see how we did that? We in the blurb biz call that the “old press catch-and-release.” You can learn all about it on my new how-to CD, Blurb Your Way to Fame and Awards, available at car washes citywide. Oops, forgot to mention, this fine event features Drew Carey and the Improv All-Stars.
