Doorman Wants to Hear From You

Greetings Fine Readers!

Things have been going fanstically at the New York Television Festival. Both of our screenings were full and we got some wonderful feedback. I'll be sure to post more about it this week, so please stay tuned!

What I'd love for now, is to hear some feedback regarding the Doorman television series. Aside from the pilot that we shot, we've written five half-hour episodes based on several of the 100 stories that I've posted on here. With the blog coming to a close, I'm curious to see which stories, characters, and themes you'd like to see in a potential Doorman episode.

You can email me anything at doormanshow@gmail.com.

Seriously, email me. I'll respond. Tell me what you'd like to see and why and we'll have a conversation about it. I can't promise I'll get back to you immediately, but I'll get back to you. This blog doesn't survive without the readers and the wonderful feedback I've gotten, and without the blog, there's no series. Plain and simple.

I look forward to hearing from you!

A Doorman vs Taxi Driver Quickie

It's 5pm and it's pouring. A family of ten rednecks want three taxis to go to a steakhouse located exact four blocks from the hotel. A taxi, with their light shining available, pulls up: 

Taxi Driver - "Where they going?" 

I try to open the door. He's locked it shut. 

Doorman - "Your on-duty light is on." 

Taxi Driver - "Where they going?" 

Doorman - "Local." 

Taxi Driver - "WHERE?!?"

Doorman "I don't know where, just take the fucking fare!" 

As expected, he peels out. Unfortunately for him, he gets stuck at the light. 

I'd say "genius strikes", but that's a little extreme. Let's go with "immaturity strikes". 

I give it about ten seconds, then sprint to his car. My black overcoat soars in the wind. 

I get to the car and bang on the window. 

Doorman - "BUDDY! BUDDY!!! You want an airport fare?" 

His eyes light up like a child on a suprise visit to the ice cream shop. His open-mouthed smile stretches the winkles in his weathered face. 

Taxi Driver - "YES! Please! Thank you, sir!" 

Pause. 

Doorman - "Go fuck yourself!" 

His face sinks as my hilarious imagination plays The Price is Right loser horn. 

I walk away. The light turns green. He waits at the light for another sixty seconds till he finally gets the hint. 

I eventually get the taxis for the rednecks. The first two stiff me, the last one gives me a five. 

Had I gotten stiffed by all, the taxi driver may have had a shot. But this was an easy one to score: 

Doorman - 3 
Taxi Driver - 1
