in Open Mic, Standup

Open Mic #1 – Imperial Pub, Toronto

Did my first open mic in a long time thanks to the support of two good buddies and fellow comedians. Showed up an hour early to get on the list and ended up second last performing.

The set didn’t go too well but I wouldn’t consider it a bomb. I started off spritzing well with the audience until I threw out a Lil’ B reference no one got. People immediately started to listen and care when I told them I am crazy and rarely leave the house (possible bit.)

After that I started to do some hackney bullshit I thought up on the train there which failed because I wasn’t committed to it.

What I learned: figure out the stage persona I want to present and stick to that one voice cause shit was not working.

That whole set had to be less than 2 minutes.
