      I've heard this expression before, but I spent more time than I'd like to admit trying to figure out what it would mean in this context.. lol.

    2. I following thread could have some suggestions for you:

      1. I guess this Sammy guy shows up the same time same venue every year?

          He's been doing this non-stop since last year (at least). It's an insane run of sellout shows; I don't think I've ever seen this happen before.

          1. re: artstate

            They are two separate shows. The first one was bilingual, this second one is all in French. And you missed Yvon Deschamps and Broue (among others) do the same thing here in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

            1. re: EaterBob

              Separate shows but with plenty of material overlap (+ some improv). Also, I arrived in Canada in 1997, so I don't know about any of that other stuff. Still impressive though. Let's end this here? Food!!

            2. re: artstate

              Actually, he sold out a run of shows at Theatre Maisonneuve at PdA this winter, so I'm not sure why he's back at Olympia.

              But good for him, it couldn't be happening for a nicer guy.
