I went on a run today, to pick up something for the Big Awesome Show I work for.
I went to the will-call window, and the guy’s eyes lit up. “You’re a PA on Big Awesome Show? How did you land that job?”
I couldn’t really say. It was just a combination of experience, networking, and luck, the same combination that led me to Big Dumb Gameshow and Shitty Scripted Show That Got Canceled After Five Episodes.
It’s sobering to realize that, despite being the low man on the totem pole, there’s someone who actually wants my job.
On the other hand, I accidentally hung up on the Big Awesome Star of the Big Awesome Show, so there may be an opening sooner than expected.
