Sweatin’ Bullets


It’s real. 

Wednesday evening, I will have my first attempt at stand-up comedy @ the Ha Ha Cafe in Los Angeles.  In recent weeks, I have reached out to SNL’s Fred Armisen and Opie & Anthony’s (and Lucky Louie’s) Jim Norton for advice.  Jim said “You’re gonna bomb, but just fucking do it.”  Fred said “Do whatever you think would make your friends laugh.”  With those pennies from heaven in tow, I will be cracking the mic this Wednesday evening.

In a perfect world, I would prefer the room to be composed of complete strangers in an effort to get an accurate read of the material.  But recently I’ve realized that several of you will be coming anyway… so fuck it.  Come one, come all.  I’m sure there will be plenty more opportunities for me to bomb in front of strangers in the future.

It’s a little earlier than I would like, but I’m posting the times so those of you who would like to come can plan accordingly.  The Open Mic starts at 6:00 and goes ’till about 8-8:30.  The order of the participants is drawn at random, so I could go on at any time.  Nick T will be hosting the rest of the way from 9pm on. 

Hope to see you there.

I Love IFS

    oh, and if you prefer smooth, intelligent hip hop to self-involved rap, you can’t ignore Common, Chicago born and bred.

    though he was born in “hot-lanna” the bulk of kanye west’s childhood took place in a little city… a windy city… known as Chicago, Illinois.

    It’s true Frank did sing a song about Chicago. However the symbol of a city’s cred is the rappers that come out of it. NY= Jay-Z. Who the hell has ever come out of Chicago? Should we book our tickets to the Big Apple now?

    I forget how this thing works, I haven’t posted in a while. CB. But I’m still a way better member than Shmimmy. Anyways, for all you suckas that didn’t come to the HAHA for a HAHA, despite how sweaty Bernie might have been on the inside under that hoodie, it didn’t show on the outside like it does in the picture above. In other words, Bernie killed it and I wish he could have performed for longer. I felt bad for the guys that said that they tried out for the Last Comic Standing and royally sucked, but when Bernie was done, I felt like a proud father.

    Just imagine everyone in the audience is a clown, and none of them are laughing, just staring.
