I spotted comedian Jimmy Tingle amongst the throngs of reporters at the Denver Host Committee’s media party last night. The day before my trip out West, I had noticed a poster for his new one man show, Jimmy TIngle for President, at the Hyde Park Public Library. Tingle will be performing at the Riverside Theater in Hyde Park on September 7.
I haven’t seen TIngle since I bested him on NECN NewsNight’s News Quiz almost two years ago. He walked by me, saw a Red Sox cap and stopped to chat. I asked him which candidate he is backing. He reminded me of his candidacy and then added a few words.
“If I’m not nominated, I will have to throw my support behind Barack Obama,” Tingle quipped.
