If you are in NYC on Sunday, you should go see Ugarte's biggest gig of his life. Here are the details.
Charles Star (aka Ugarte) is a former attorney who quit his corporate gig and decided to pursue his life long dream of being in Michael Flatley's Riverdance. Despite all his valiant efforts to line-jig dance, he simply wasn't Irish enough to make the cast. Dejected, he turned to heroin and robbing check cashing places in Brownsville. After a short tint in rehab and a lost weekend hanging out with Scientologists, Charles Star discovered stand up comedy. Now he's living the dream. So stop by and support a fellow poker blogger in his quest to make people laugh. And yeah, Ugarte was the guy who got me invited to the Blue Parrot for the first time. He's a part of NYC poker blogging lore.
