I think I’ve had a pretty good March; met up with some friends to watch a movie, baked a cake, posted a video on youtube and performed my first stand-up of the year (hooray for productivity).
Let me set the scene, prosthetic limbed strippers dangling from the ceiling, a coked out magician on stage about to do his act. There was a distinct musk of piss in the air only being overshadowed by the occasional fart by an overweight single father of one.
Now you can choose to believe that or not but that’s the mind frame I like to put myself in when I gig. You have to psyche yourself up for anything because you don’t know what’s going to happen.
Fortunately it was actually a really nice night. It all took place at St. Christopher inn at London Bridge. It was part of the Golden Jester comedy competition. A really nice venue found downstairs of the pub. If I was going to review it on yelp or tripavidsor it would get a really favourable score. It was relatively small but I refrained from complaining. I didn’t make it through the next round but I got a good reception from the crowd. Improvements have been made and I look forward to continually getting better.
The night ended with a performance from the comedian Shazia Mirza. One thing an up-and-coming comic must never do is compare them to an established act. Don’t be disheartened if they come of funnier than you, that’s to be expected. Now do I follow his advice, hell no I don’t.
Overall I’ll give the whole experience my thanks and gratitude.
