Moving From Brooklyn To New Jersey Ain’t No Joke!
So I wanted get this out there before I forget. I have done a lot of standup routines in and around Brooklyn over the years and have made some amazing friends. A close friend of mine recently made a move from Williamsburg to Kearny New Jersey where she will continue doing standup on the weekends while attending nursing school during the week.
She hired a moving company to transport her furniture and belongings so we didn’t have to drive a U-Haul truck for 45 minutes through the Newark-New Jersey City Turnpike. Traveling from Brooklyn to New Jersey is stressful in itself, doing it in a moving truck is a nightmare!
We left a day early and took an alternate route north to hang out in Manhattan for the day. The comedy was non stop on that drive, we laughed and joked our way through the city, honking and flipping off every one that deserved a bird!
We stopped at the Gotham Comedy Club for one last standup routine before heading on over to Kearny. We laughed our tails off all night, it was such a great show!
The next morning we woke up early and continued our venture east, we had to get there before Bluebell Relocation got there with her furniture. We still had to unlock the doors of her new place and get it ready for the move in. When we got there the guys had arrived early and already started unloading the moving truck. They helped us get everything situated and even helped me fix the drawer I broke on her work desk.
It was a fun move, one I will remember for years to come. It felt like a scene from Thelma & Louise! We were two comedy bandits out on the open roads, we felt free, we had a laugh, and we got her moved into her new place safely.
I’ll miss that girl in Brooklyn, but now I have an excuse to visit Kearny! Moving is a serious business, and that move was No Joke ;^}
