After finding himself front and center in the crowd with his fiancé and training partner to his right, reality set in, and depending on the mood Hunter was in, Perry was in for a long night.
Despite being a professional in the art of comedic jabs, Hunter broke up his normal set a couple times to simply test the waters with Perry.
“I’m friends with Alex Nicholson, Alex has been to shows before and he was there with Mike Perry, so when I saw that Mike was laughing I was like, ‘OK, we’re good,’” Hunter explained. “With Mike Perry in the front row you never really know what’s coming.”
Perry in the front row would have been any comedian’s best friend. It was too good to be true.
There was something extra enjoyable about the night when Hunter repeatedly found his way back to Perry and heard Perry laugh it all off. You’d have to pay close attention to know when it was Perry though, because the fact of the matter is that it seemed that was when everybody seemed to laugh the hardest.
“A lot of the Mike Perry jokes people really seemed to like and he handled it really well,” Hunter explained. “I was really happy about that. He was such a good sport, as well as his pregnant girlfriend. She was a good sport, as well.”
“The 16 and Pregnant jokes were pretty funny,” Perry added.
