Comedy is a tough sport, performing is the best part of it but everything else makes it horrible. Comics rarely if ever help out their fellow comedians. I think they feel that if you get a spot it somehow takes away from them getting an opportunity. I’ve always believed that we are only competing against our past selves. As an exercise and lesson in work ethic, I now write three jokes a day on social media. They aren’t always the best and they aren’t something I’d do onstage but since I rarely get booked it is all I can do. I may not be booked as much as other comedians but I can out write them. I think some people are starting to notice but it often feels like I’m spinning my wheels and getting no where. I guess it’s extra frustrating because I’ve always helped out my fellow comedians and they rarely do the same in kind. I’ve even gotten many of them paid when no one else would. It is weird to hear from audiences when I perform that I’m good over and over again but other comedians won’t put me up on their shows. Audience members ask me all the time why aren’t you on TV? I have no idea. All I can do is perform, it is the only thing I love doing.
I do the sound for this show and I’m very proud of the work my friend has been doing.
