The Get Steve Ferris A Week At Laughs Unlimited Campaign

Hey everybody!

What do you guys wanna do? What do I want to do? I want to get a week at Laughs Unlimited, because I’ve been doing comedy in Sacramento now for over six years, and have never worked there. I would say it’s about time. I’ve been told by people over the years that they would start giving me work many times, but it’s rarely happened. I guess that’s just how it goes, but really, I think it’s time now to stop relying on other people and get this done myself. So that’s why for the past two weeks now I’ve been contacting the owners, trying to get guest sets, soliciting recommendations from other comics that work there, and trying to find and tape better sets. I’m not surprised to find that these efforts have so far been thwarted by a “friend” who continually refuses to put me up at their open mic nights that only he runs while recommending they book other “new” comics, a no guest-set policy in place for the next several weeks, and a failure to find venues at which to perform and tape clip worthy sets. But that’s not going to stop me from trying!

If you’d like to help, please call Laughs Unlimited (916) 446-8128 Tuesday through Friday between 11am and 4pm and say you’ll come out if they book me. Thanks, and expect more updates in the coming weeks/days.
