Don’t think I bombed

Tonight I did the open mic at Liaison. It’s a lounge. I hung out for an hour and the show still didn’t start, so I said I’d just go up and start it off. Didn’t get a lot of laughs, but there was hardly anyone there, and they seemed to be enjoying my set at least, unlike the night before. Had a cool idea. Sometimes you do bad on a set and the jokes worked great 10 other times, but on this night they’re just not. That’s what happened last night. Sometimes when that happens, comics try to claim that the jokes killed all the other times so they must be good and the crowd just sucks. They tell the audience this. Well, that may be true, but you’re not going to convince that crowd unless you can actually make the joke funny to them. So my idea was, to stop claiming the jokes are funny. Instead of saying “Last nights crowd loved that joke, so it’s funny” say, “Last nights crowd loved that joke, but that doesn’t mean it’s funny. Not really sure what it means…” or something like that.

Whats next for me? I need to build out my websites more. will be my comedy website, I’m going to buy some what do you guys wanna do shirts, and I want to start my own open mic / showcase called Stand Up Freakshow or something like that.

I just bombed

Went to the Sac Punchline tonight, and bombed. Sparse crowd, not really together. I hate to blame them, so I always try to find a way to blame myself instead. The whole thing just felt wrong to me, and instead of pausing to evaluate which is what I would have liked to do after thinking […]

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, […]

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 […]

April 15, 2013


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 […]

Day 1: KDVS Campus Radio

Last night I did a radio show on KDVS 90.3 called the Standup Show, hosted by my friend, Michael Cella. I had fun doing it. First they did an interview with me and asked me a bunch of questions about my act. I don’t know if I gave the answers they wanted but they were […]

Open Mic Fantasy

Though I haven’t done any open mics in almost 2 weeks now (I have performed at a couple of shows), I’ve been writing jokes and stuff, and fantasizing about performing them. It’s pretty cool because I never bomb, so it reinforces weirder ideas. That could be bad, but it could be good too because it […]
