What's It Like Doing Open-Mic Stand-Up Comedy for the First Time?

Ramona knows:

People are afraid to do open-mic standup comedy, and it’s probably because it’s just about the most pretentious thing you could possibly do besides run for president or murder someone.

I’m going to get up on this barely elevated stage, and I am going to try to make you laugh. I’m not going to definitely make you laugh, because some things I’m going to say aren’t funny, and some of you can be stupid, but probably not in the same way that I can be stupid, and also some of you laugh mainly on the inside and should really stop coming to open-mics.

Last Wednesday I tried my hand at a comedy open mic.

See how it went. Seriously, it’s a great read. Waaay better than Funny People.

    You’ve perfected the look. And all else, of course. Jeanne thinks you are going to be famous. I think that’s possible but wonder whether you’ll be able to buy health insurance even so. Moms.xxx

  3. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect
    against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
