Tonight I went to the Blacktop open mic. It’s starts at 9:30. I didn’t want to get off work at 7:30, drive home to Sac, and then drive back to Roseville. So I didn’t. I went to Fry’s and made a return. I also bought a laser mouse. As if I wasn’t good enough at Quake 3 already. It’s just I noticed how good the tracking was on my Apple Magic Mouse, but you can’t left and right click at the same time to jump and shoot. So I got the Logitech LS1.

Anyway, then I went to the Blacktop. It was in an industrial park with a hot rod shop across the street. The kind of place where they would film Pimp My Ride. I waited around to get on stage. I was hungry, but there was no food. I’m not complaining, but I was hungry thats all. I also had the urge to pick my teeth, but they didn’t have any toothpicks. The place was a lot like the old Comedy Spot on broadway but they didn’t have a crazy amount of seasonings for the popcorn. There was a gimped out guy there and he did a set. He only had one arm and most of his jokes were about only having one arm. At frys I had seen a guy who works there and his head was an odd shape. Interesting night to see so much disfiguration.

I did my set. They said they wanted to listen to me. They wanted to listen to my inner thoughts. I just started doing it. Telling them the thoughts. Sometimes there were parts where I didn’t talk, because I wasn’t thinking about anything, but those were brief moments. Then at the end I had a minute and they said they wanted to hear a joke. I told the one about the colors of the toilet.

This morning I posted on the facebook comedy group how I emailed some bookers telling them my dream. It felt good. Also there is another Reject show in the works.

Just Dance

I went to the Scramble again tonight. They do it two nights a week. Sunday and Monday. I did a repeat of last night by walking in after 9. And the same amount of people remained in the crowd. I asked what they wanted to do as usual. Jessica Wellington is the one in charge […]

The Rejects of Standup In The Black

Last night we did The Rejects of Standup again at The Dark Room Theater in SF. We got 29 people so we were pretty stoked. It was a special show for Johnny Squires’ 45th birthday, so it was also successful in that he managed to turn 45 during the show. Johnny emceed. Then we had […]

Can’t hang with the big dogs

Remember last night how I said I wasn’t going to that one place until the guy that ran it figured out that it was me texting him for a spot? Well he figured it out, so I went and did a spot. Mostly just comics hanging out, but a few people off the street. I […]

Unicorns and Jokes

I did a couple of open mics tonight. First I did Luna’s Cafe. They have a Wednesday showcase there too so don’t get confused. I haven’t done that one in a while because the guy who runs it lost my number, so he doesn’t know it’s me texting to get a spot. I’ve decided I […]

Pine Cone

Tonight I did a set at this place called the Pine Cove. Hosted by Helarme. I messed up because I thought the show started at 9, but it was at 8. Anyway, I still did a set. I asked what they wanted to do, and tried out a new idea I had to make things […]

Can I do it?

A couple of my comedy friends blog just about every day and get all their shows in. So far I’ve just gone in spurts where maybe I’ll do a post for every day one week, but then it might be a couple of months before I do it again. I’m wondering if I can do […]
