Upon his return, he reported in:
"There were four acts the day I was there. One was an opera of certain letters from Karl Marx to Frederick Engles asking for money, a German torch singer singing about wealth, a monologue from a guy who used to work at Deutche Bank and tried to work out a deal for the Lebanese Airport after it was bombed, and, of course, Laffer.
The big end of the evening was that my name was drawn from a hat as the artist to participate in a 'patronage auction.' Seriously. So the audience bid on the right to pay for an hour of my 'artist' time. It ended up being a crowd funded $116... So know I have to figure out the hour I will take my patronage for and then produce a report on what I did. Intense."
Intense indeed, Dave. But you're worth every penny. Congrats!
