Kevin Pollack Addison Improv 8/23/13

Kevin Pollack became a big blip on my radar during the 2012 World Series of Poker.  A lot of celebrities play in the big event but most are knocked out on day 1 or 2.  In fact, most pro players are knocked out on day 1 or 2. Kevin lasted 5 days and cashed; a very impressive event.

When I saw that he was coming to the Addison Improv, I quickly got tickets and hoped to get an autograph.  This appearance was scheduled after the World Series of Poker and I really wanted to ask him how he did.

The show was great.  He was funny and his impersonations were spot on.  After the show he did a ‘meet and greet’ with anyone that cared to line up. He sold books (at a discount and he signed them) and he posed for photos. He was constantly chatting and engaging the fans.

I bought a book and he signed my photo.  I left with a smile on my face. The wife and I were walking back to the car and I realized I never asked how he did in the poker tourney. Ugh! That would have been a great conversation opener.

Even though I didn’t get a memorable quote, I had a great time adding to my collection.



  1. So wonderful when they are painless experiences, sounds like you just had a minor brain fart ;-)

  2. Daniel – you are absolutely right – a brain fart!
