Two beer fear
Comedian Aaron Karo is back in New York for a couple of days and what does he do? Walk everywhere, pregame and go out drinking with his buddies. Now thats true recovering frat boy style!
Karo has made a name for himself with that tag line - pegged off his 50,000-subscriber strong e-mail column, Ruminations.
Karo started his column as a casual weekly e-mail to his pals during his freshman year at the University of Pennsylvanias Wharton School. He wrote about everything from girls to class in his unmistakably sarcastic, humorous voice. The column quickly escalated in popularity.
Two book deals even followed - Ruminations on College Life and Ruminations on Twentysomething Life.
Karos now back on a stand-up tour, hitting New Yorks Nokia Theatre on Sat., May 3 (tickets available through Ticketmaster).
And though Karo will have his signature two beers on stage with him, don't expect him to drink on stage.
"I did two shows at Ann Arbor. And I hadn't done two shows a night in a while. So I got my Goose on the rocks," Karo says. "And next thing I know, I'm kind of f----- up. My show's about getting f----- up, so it doesn't really affect my performance. But half-way through, I'm like, 'I have to urinate.'"
So Karo just walked off-stage, used the men's room and made a joke about it.
"That's why I can't drink on stage," he says. "It's not because I get drunk but because I have to break the seal."
