Found a Snake

I went down to the San Francisco Punch Line Sunday Showcase last night. As I stepped out the door of my house, I saw a snake! A little gopher snake about a foot long. There’s a new lady doing comedy named Noel, and she went with me. I got the snake into a container and then let it go in a field.

At the Punch Line, they did Joke Parade at the end. Last time I did it, I did pretty well with a drawn out explanation for why the chicken crossed the road. You’re supposed to do a street joke, but whenever they do Joke Parade, I can never think of one, so I end up making up my own. This time I thought maybe I would use my small world joke. I went to Disneyland and went on the small world ride, but I didn’t see anyone that I knew. It bombed. It reminded me that I just don’t really have the delivery style to pull off jokes like that anymore, if I ever did. And I don’t care. I like doing stuff like I did with the chicken crossing the road. It just works for me. It’s against the rules, but who cares. No one enforces the rules. You don’t get banned because you didn’t use a street joke on Joke Parade. Besides, the hosts are so mean to you anyway, why should you follow the rules. Plus, when I did the chicken bit, the audience laughed so hard it drowned out the hosts’ mean comments. I think I’m just gonna use the chicken bit every time they do Joke Parade from now on. Or do a drunk act.

Anyway, then we left and when we got down to the street, we saw a coyote! Got some Thai food and went home on the Golden Gate. It was a wild night.

Found a Classmate

I dropped a guest set tonight on this show at this place called The Powerhouse in Folsom. Amber Whitford runs a fun show at a wild, wild place. When you go to a dive bar, you expect to see some people that look like they’ve hard, and probably done meth at least a 100 times. […]

Maryam vs Kelly

Tonight I went to the open mic at The Comedy Spot again. I mostly got my ear talked off by Kelly Browne. There was like a thing going on with names. She kept making jokes about her real name not being Kelly. I asked her what it was, and she said it was Kelly, it […]

Concord Grapes

Mead Dave said I could do this Concord show, so I put it on the calendar. It was last night. I carpooled down with four other comedians. Buddy Rahming, Ed Mena, Jacqui Pirl, Joey C, and me. Jacqui drove us down there in her 5-speed VW Jetta. I sat in the middle in the back, […]

Something In The Lawn

“There’s just something in the lawn. I don’t know if it’s the type of grass they used, or what.” This was my review of the venue that I performed at last night. It was in Tina’s backyard. She calls the show, The Dope Room. Who is Tina? She is a comedian here in the local […]

The Number 22

I went to The Comedy Spot again tonight for their Tuesday open mic. I got the same slot as last time: 22. So I went for a walk again. This time I called my friend Sheli and caught up with her for an hour or so while I walked. I didn’t see the Taco Tuesday […]

Bicycle Group on K

I went to The Comedy Spot tonight for their new Tuesday Open Mic. The first one was last week, but I forgot to go. This time I made it. I hung around and said hello to a few people and talked to some other old friends, like Robert Berry. He told me that he had […]

Last night I went to On The Y, and I bombed. But it was okay. I met a cool lady who liked my set, and I wrote a joke about On The Y. In the joke I claim that The Beastie Boys played at On The Y in the ’80s, and one of them left […]

Dance Video

I decided to try some other things besides standup for a while and see how I like it. One of them was this dance video that I made last weekend and through a little help from some friends and social media, we got it up to 728 views in one week. I was impressed by […]

Three mics

Last night I did three open mics in Sac. I did the comedy spot scramble. I’m dropping the what do you guys wanna do bit for short sets so I can focus on joke writing. So I did my reader character from back in the day. Gave me back that experience of getting an imediate […]
