The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Dave 1I woke up in a panic this morning, Modern Philosophers!

I snatched the alarm clock off my nightstand, saw the time, and freaked out because I had overslept and was going to be late for work.

That was when I realized that today is Writer’s Day, the Holiday I’ve created to bask in the glow of the previous evening’s taping of The Nite Show, while also getting some writing done.

That was a close one!

One of the things I love about being a writer on The Nite Show is getting to meet so many interesting and cool people.

David Forbes Brown is one such person.  Dave, as he allows us to call him when he doesn’t want to sound like a serial killer, is a fellow blogger and Nite Show writer.

The night well captured! My novel is available on Amazon here:

200 cameraIt was another thrilling night at The Gracie Theatre, Modern Philosophers, as The Nite Show With Danny Cashman returned for a new season.

Maine’s favorite late night talk show also hit the 200 episode mark.  To commemorate this special milestone, I thought I’d pull back the curtain and give you a behind the scenes peek at the making of the show.

I took so many photos tonight, Modern Philosophers, that I’ll probably write several posts over the next couple of days to make use of them.

For now, though, let’s check out some of the thing that the television audience usually never gets to see…

200 GracieThe Gracie Theatre is on the campus of Husson University in Bangor.  The Nite Show’s crew is made up of students from NESCOM, the New England School of Communications, which is on the Husson campus.

Let me say, once again, that the NESCOM students are…
