Third Place

I did the competition tonight at Laughs Unlimited. I got third place. I think I deserved it for sure. The winners were exactly what I felt. One judge gave me a 4 for originality (all others gave 5 out of 5), so I guess you can never be truly original. Sure can try though. Anyway, third isn’t good enough. Been getting some quality feedback from people that I need lately. I’m too lazy. I guess maybe I’m talented enough that often enough I get away with not working that hard at this. Sure, I might drive around to a lot of open mics sometimes, but I never really try to work that hard on writing and polishing stuff up. I get away with it by doing well at an open mic, and then I think I’m doing enough. But I’m not. Not even close. And then I go and do shows for important people who are in charge of booking and what not, and they can see it. But then on the other hand, I don’t like watching comedians that really have it down. I don’t want to be impressed with how down they have it, I want to be impressed by how hard I laughed. So I expect the same thing from myself. I want to be seen as a fuck off who somehow happened to get on the bill, but in order to do that, I have to somehow meet the requirements to get on the bill. It’s the same idea I’ve used for writing papers in school. So boring right? Eventually I managed to get As and Bs on papers I could never imagine getting grades like that. It was almost like finding a loophole or something. I need to be the guy that shouldn’t be here, shouldn’t be funny, but somehow he’s both. I could be the worst comedian ever, but still be the funniest.

Three Mic Monday and The Pacifier

Whew! Finally managed to get three sets in again. First I hit up The Sac Comedy Spot Scramble. Got on this time (unlike the night before). I told some jokes but it wasn’t the jokes that got the biggest laugh. That came when I heckler threw in an impromptu punchline to a joke. I’ll be […]

So things were starting to look up this last week, and I figured I’d give hitting some open mics a shot. There’s three that you can do. Scramble at the Comedy Spot, On the Y, and Touch of Class. Well, I went to all three, but wasn’t able to get a single set. First off, […]

Monday Music Mic

I did an MMM tonight. I did it one time before and it was pretty wild. They always start late. I haven’t been on a stage in three weeks. I walked in, signed up and played it chill. Dude told me he’d put me up at midnight. It was 11pm. Sounded good to me. I […]

Bad ass show at 11am in the morning

Three weeks ago I got to do a show that was part of 48 hours of comedy at the Sac Comedy Spot. It was pretty cool because my friend Sammy Obeid is doing 1000 days of comedy, and so it was great to at least be part of 48 hours of comedy. I have to […]

Catch up post

The next show I did after that radio show was a special spot on the Laughs Unlimited open mic that turned out not to be that special. I got up and started doing my set. Didn’t feel like I was killing it, but didn’t seem bad either. Maybe just an average set. I see the […]
