cuuunt, how did your set go?

 

Havent done it yet.

 

I was set up for late November but due to some bullshit it didnt pull through.

To be honest its been on my mind and ive been working on my routine.

 

It will happen, and hopefully there will be audio, maby even video.

 

Thanks for re-vamping my interest in this, definatly something I dont want to let go.

That's awesome man hope you pull thru with it.

 

 

Just found a lil bar that does open mic night on sundays. I'm trying to setup my material with a good intro, small joke, story joke and out...

 

 

 

Are any of you practicing your jokes with other people? Like I'll randomly throw in my bits with coworkers without them realizing I'm testing my material out. Small crowds are a different story but I can manage speaking to a good amount of people while teling a story at a party.

My bar does it every Monday. It's gotten to the point where the bar is packed.

 

Stand-up is going through a resurgence in Chicago. Some people that suck have no focus,

 

or direction, just a bunch of non-conected rants with lame punchlines.

 

The storytellers do the best. If you can manage to keep everything somehow tied together,

 

or part of the flow, they seem to do the best.

 

This past Monday this Jewish dood (who was called to go up), came in late, in a suit, sweating

 

profusely(coke) and smoked through 10 minutes of material in barely 3 minutes. He then

 

grabbed his jacket and stormed out the door, just like he came in. It was so strange that

 

it was pretty funny.

try it out br0?

 

tonight was my second time, same venue

 

told a joke, followed by a related story... definitely got some laughs, but i think i would be better understood at a place that is not full of vegan tpwfs, feminist types, & middle-aged bluegrass enthusiasts; my joke about burn victims & satan did not go over as well as i had thought

 

next time

I HIGHLY recommend watching "Talking Funny" on HBO, I'm sure it's online if you don't have the channel.

 

Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais and Chris Rock sit around talk comedy.

 

Completely interesting, 'inspiring' as far as comedic careers and that fields go. They even mention their first jokes and standup early years..

Last night it went down fellas.

 

First gig, hole in the wall but still atleast 30 people came out.

Only 5 people did a gig, I was up about 10 minutes.

It was amazing, not me but the experience.

Alot of homies/girlies came out to support me and I had people dap me up

after my routine, and they actually ask me to do and encore, so I did about

another 5minutes.

 

Im stoked, hopefully I can make it a weekly thing

That's awesome man! You were good enough to be asked for an encore. Were you prepped for that or you just winged the extra 5 min? And I heard 5-10min actually lasts alot longer than it sounds.

 

 

 

 

I just emailed to be put down for an open mic this sunday, still waiting on a reply.

Yeah man it was quite the experience. I was prepped for my first 10 with shit ive been writing down all week, the 5min encore was a few things I forgot in my first set and then I pulled 3 or 4 jokes and a quick story out of my ass.

 

Thats awsome dude, exactly how I got my gig. Get your fella/ladies to come out, drink but not too much before and it should be a good ass time.

 

Good luck big homie, im sure youll bring the heat

word the fuck up cunt, congrats! the first experience itself was like lifting weight off your chest, was it not br0?

 

i did my third one on tuesday, at a place with less dreads (they werenice, though) - same jokes as the week before. they were understood a little more to say at the least at this place. the people were generally cool to me, so i will hopefully try to go back next week

 

there is no way i can say "good luck" on this page again without sounding like a total fagg0t, but good luck also, words

 

if either of you ever stop by toronto, i am totally down to go eat shit on some random open mic with yall

I how some girls up in montreal area ive been meaning to visit.

If im out that way which is quite possible this summer well try to link up and do a set itd be fun as shit if nothing else.

 

Congrats to everyone doing this, im already looking for my second place to go but the first lace I went was almost begging me to come back next week so I might make that my training camp till I get my routine polished.

 

How do you guys rehearse/write your stuff?

I just have a piece of paper I carry on me and when I get an idea I write it down then on some side time(shower/driving) whatever i try to say it out loud or think how I can tie it in.

Stories are the best though, even shit that youre use to in life can be lolz to other people.
