My uncle always told me, "You're only as good as your last envelope, Jimmy." I never knew what that meant until I started watching the Sopranos on HBO. The show was a tutorial on all things related to mafia life in New Jersey. (If you're wondering, my uncle gets out in 10 to 15)

If you loved the Sopranos like I did, you'll be happy to know one of the main characters will be in Cedar Rapids next month. Vincent "Big Pussy" Pastore will be appearing at Penguins Comedy Club on February 16th & 17th.

Pastore will be telling stories, cracking some jokes, and for all of you "wannabe" actors in the audience, you can volunteer to come on stage and act out a scene with Vincent from one of the Sopranos episodes.

It sounds awesome to me, I can't wait! Tickets for the show are available at this link.
