Today marks my 1-year anniversary of being a stand-up comedian. Not that I needed it, but Facebook even helped remind me by posting an “On This Day In 2010” status for me. It was in Worcester at the now defunct Orlando’s Comedy Jam. I was there to record Ryan Staples‘ set so he could submit it to the Boston Comedy Festival. I had been working on some jokes, there weren’t that many comics and the night was running short, so I asked the host if I could try it out and he let me go up. The crowd was very supportive and obviously I was hooked.
To celebrate the anniversary, in keeping with a year long (involuntary) tradition, I have no Friday bookings so you won’t be able to catch my anniversary performance. I do, however, have this fun picture of the first time I performed stand-up:
Same mannerisms then as I have now, except I try not to wear graphic T’s anymore. Maybe someday I’ll throw something up on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
