On Lockdown

Tonight I went to special Friday open mic at the Lockdown. I got a sandwich and a glass of wine. The Lockdown is a brewery bar, so when I asked what they wanted to do, I wasn’t surprised to find out that they wanted to get drunk. Then someone said they wanted to hear a joke. So I told one. Then I asked what they wanted to do now (they said joke not jokes). Then they said they wanted to laugh. So I told more jokes. It seemed like it went well. I had fun. There was eye candy there for people of all orientations too. Lots of it.

After the show, some comic friends invited me to go do some hardcore drugs under a bridge. I said no. There are lots of reasons for me saying no, but the most important one is that I don’t need to do drugs to be funny.
