Ride the Donkey

Another night chasing mics and only getting one set basically. Went to the Monday Scramble: too late, too full. Ate at Azul. Tried the Sol Collective. Never been before. Waste of time unless you want to hang around and see some pretty decent underground hip hop. So I went for it and rode the donkey.

The Boxing Donkey in Roseville that is. Got a glass of wine. They said they wanted to ride a rainbow. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to make them do that, and eventually they got tired of it. Then they wanted to find a pot of gold. I told them I was trying to help them find it, but I’m a comedian, not a pot of gold finder. Well, finally they said they wanted to laugh. So I start telling my Pirate Glass joke, but then we get a heckler. No one would own up to it. I stuck to it and said we can’t continue with the jokes until we find out who heckled. It worked out pretty good and finally the lady that did it admitted it. She said she wanted to heckle all night, but I said she was going to have to do it to the other comedians, because my time was up. Should be a fun set to watch. Let’s find out.

Looks like I still didn’t fix the focus on the camera.

Mic Run Sunday – 11/24/2013

Blegh. I’m all pumped up on my mic rip from the stand method. So I’m trying to go out and do as much stage time as I can. But man, it sure is a bummer sometimes. The first set I did that night wasn’t that bad. It was at the Sunday Scramble at the Comedy […]

Old Time Bar Ick

I went to this open mic/competition thing tonight at the old time bar. Someone has to go on last, but it always sucks when it has to be you. It was me. Going on last doesn’t equal headlining. Not only that, but the sound system sucked balls. Maybe that’s what was wrong with it: someone’s […]

Monday half…

I stayed a little later at work tonight than I had planned. No overtime, but I had planned to leave earlier. I wanted to finish up what I was working on. Then I texted to see if it would be worth it to head over to the Comedy Spot for the scramble. Not really. I […]

Laughs Unlimited Competition

I did the Laughs Unlimited Competition tonight. It was the third one I’ve done. I got the worst placement I’ve gotten so far. First time I got fourth place. Second time I got third. This time I got 6th place. But, I enjoyed my set a lot more this time than I did either of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Your future starts when you turn it on

Hi readers. In the coming weeks I plan to cut down on open mics, and instead focus on other things. Like a lawnmower, your future doesn’t start until you turn it on. Open mics aren’t the future. Nine years of open mics, open mics, open mics, open mics, and sometimes a showcase. Nine years of […]
