STAND UP COMEDY ~OWN IT OR LET IT GO

Posted on July 12, 2014 at 11:13 AM Comments comments ()
 
standup comedy is not just about things.
It's your story.
It should fit YOU.
Everything you talk about should be tied to you in some way.
Emotionally.

Standup comedy is this weird animal of an art form where one person along with their twisted thoughts and feelings get
one shot at meeting their audience.
One shot!

All we ask is some staging, sound, lights and somebody to talk to.
An Audience.

However too many shows we are faced with bad sound, little to no staging and even sometimes no lighting as well.
And they even ask us to bring the audience.
Annnd they limit and control our time, as
well as the bartender grades us!!
LOL enjoy the absurdity.

that's why you got to love it to do it. If you don't please step down and allow the talents that are obsessed for whatever reason to put themselves through this. We do it because we must. That's the only way it means anything.
