Pipe Threader

Tonight after work I bought some 1/2 galvanized pipe for a home project. I bought a 10 foot section, but had it cut to be one 9 foot section, and one 1 foot section. Well, actually what we did just to be sure was measure the size I needed by connecting a 5 foot section and a 4 foot section together, because I’m going to replace a 5 foot and 4 foot piece that are coupled, and I was worried that might not work out to exactly 9 feet, but the home improvement store guy said it was pretty damn close. Then he threaded the cut ends of the 9 foot piece and the leftover 1 foot piece. It was pretty cool to watch, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone to see at least once in your life. It’s like sex but with pipe not being a metaphor. Like, Leslie Pipes would actually be a pipe.

After that I swung by The Comedy Spot open mic, and got a burrito at Azul. I checked the list for the open mic, but it was really full. What I do now if I show up late, is I just appear. If the host sees me and gets excited about putting me on, then I’ll let them put me on. Otherwise, if I ask if there’s room, it just puts tons of pressure on them and they resent me for it, even though that’s never my intention. It’s just what happens. Plus it’s just more fun to perform on shows where you know the host loves you and wants to expose the crowd to you, and if they ask you instead of you asking them, it really means a lot and feels really good. I think it’s a win – win for everyone.

Anyway, then I left and went to Starlight. I hung out for a while and listened to a David Bowie cover, and then I bombed for a few minutes. I didn’t really care though. I felt like I was able to acknowledge that I was bombing without saying it. Then at the end I over explained what was going to happen when my set was over, and that got some good laughs.

Luna’s Ride

I rode my bike to Luna’s Cafe tonight. It takes about 30 minutes. Nice ride too. Been thinking of putting together a little 7 minute set, freezing it, and then just keeping it for a year, maybe even two. Put one together tonight that could be a candidate. This one guy there had some nachos […]

Been Down

I did an open mic tonight called Vince’s. They make it a competition, and if you win you get your name written on a trophy with a Sharpie. I could care less about that, so I took advantage of the fact that people were avoiding going first, and signed up first even though ten people […]

Starlight 7-29-2015

Randomly walked into The Starlight tonight and did a set. First I got a “Not your father’s root beer.” It was good. They said they wanted to laugh, so I worked on my rapped by a turd joke a little bit more. There weren’t any other comics there that I knew. The crowd enjoyed it. […]

Scramble 12-8-2014

Tonight I went to the Scramble open mic at the comedy spot. I asked what they wanted to do, and they took their time. Eventually one guy said party but almost immediately, before he could finish, another guy said laugh. So then I said they had to pick between the two, but they wouldn’t do […]

Beach Boys at the Starlight

Some guy had “The Beach Boys” do his birthday party somewhere downtown on Saturday night. I couldn’t go because I was doing my Luna’s show, but thats okay because it was just the Mike Love, Bruce Johnston Beach Boys, with John Stamos pretending to be Dennis Wilson again. Anyway, I went to the Starlight open […]

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 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 […]
