There Goes The Neighborhood

I did this aptly titled show tonight. It had Thai Rivera headlining, and I hadn’t been a huge fan in the past, but I loved his set tonight. He really seemed like a real person this time. I think it was the goatee. ┬áBut I enjoyed his material and performance a lot and thought it fit really well with the title of the show.

My set was fun, but it took the crowd a while to figure out what to do. First they wanted to hear me yodel. I don’t know how, so I did my best, but it sucked. That was actually intentional. No one could volunteer an example of what yodeling should sound like. Then this one lady wanted to see me strip. I figured I should try to get out of that one, so I doubled checked that they didn’t want to laugh, and then they said they did want to laugh. So, no stripping for you lady. Jokes mostly went great except for my cat and mouse joke that fell flat. I was hella bummed because that joke is so stupid. At the end of my set I said you guys have seen all of me, but they pointed out that they hadn’t since I didn’t strip. Damn, maybe they really did want to see me strip more than hear my jokes.

This was my first set having a girlfriend. She was there and it was nice. I think I would have gotten more nervous before my set since it had Thai Rivera and it was The Punchline, and I was doing 15 minutes. But, she calms me and I didn’t really feel nervous at all. Her name is Heather and she rocks.

My Girlfriend

I have a girlfriend now. We had been talking and spending time together when I did this set, and she came and watched. She also likes to perform standup, but she did not do a set on this night. The title of this post is “My Girlfriend.” She wasn’t actually my girlfriend at the time […]

My Memory is Scrambled

I’ve been sick recently. This blog post is about the last night I did comedy before getting sick. I kind was getting sick during that day, so when I got home I didn’t update my blog because I just wanted to get some rest. Anyway, that was nearly 3 weeks ago, and I really have […]

First SF Punchline set of 2014

I got on at the SF Punchline tonight. I did really good. I asked what they wanted to do. No response at first, just laughs. Then this one guy said he wanted to do jokes, but then he changed his mind. A few people tried telling me “it’s all you buddy” but I just asked […]

Apple Tree Redlight Greenlight

So we did The Apple Tree Comedy Competition again last night on The Sacramento Comedy Spot’s Test Kitchen show. It was the third time we did it, and the time when they decide whether or not to greenlight the show for regular rotation. Well, I messed up as usual at the beginning. I forgot to […]

First Sac Punchline of 2014

What a great way to get this year started off. I already got to do a set at the Punchline. And it was a blast just like last time. This time it was more challenging than before, because the crowd didn’t know what they wanted to do. They didn’t even know why they had come […]

First Luna’s Open Mic of 2014

I went to Luna’s last night. I was going to go to Laugh’s Unlimited, but it didn’t work out. I refuse to park around there, so I would have had to ride my bike, and I was running late anyway, so I just rode my bike to Luna’s. Later I was happy that I did […]

Marilyn’s on K

I went to Marilyn’s on K tonight for a new open mic. They had Marilyn Monroe pictures all over and I didn’t get it until just now. The crowd said they wanted to do crack, a fine woman, and let a cat loose in the place. Then they said they wanted to do comedy. Finally […]

First Set of 2014

For my first set of 2014 I went to the open mic at Blacktop comedy. There’s this gimp comic that shows up there sometimes with no arms and one and a half legs, but it’s the long half, like just some muscle missing. I think all the bones are there. Anyway, this dude is a […]

Last Set of 2013

For my last set of 2013 I did the Monday Scramble at The Comedy Spot. I had written two jokes based on conversations at work the previous Friday. I tried them both and they did real good. Then I told the pirate glass joke and no one laughed. What the hell. http://youtu.be/q3S91xagsQs
