It was an open mic night where first a load of pro comedians perform, then they do like a bucket lottery of names of all the amateurs. So names just keep getting picked out of the bucket until there are no more left / everyone goes home / both.
We were there all night.
I got to perform a bit drunk which actually doesn't help. 1-2 glasses of wine = good. 3-4 drinks = bad.
That was actually a really helpful lesson to learn.
Also I tried out a couple of new jokes (thnx 3-4 glasses) and they went OK.
I ran the stats, and although technically 2/6 people laughed at my jokes, one of them was my friend and therefore likely sympathy laughed. So that leaves 1/5 people laughing at my jokes.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS? YES. 20%%%%%%%% of people find my jokes funny!!! Awesome stats. Almost a quarter of the population LOL at my funnies, true story.
Including my new joke which is super lame about my blue 'spring water' scented shower gel being like a bread sandwich.
I also tried out my Honest Ed's chat up lines but I think I was actually the only one laughing.
Anyway, check out PrOpen @ The Comedy Bar, starts at 9pm on a Tuesday night.
Stole this cool pic from @pies.skye's instagram (Courtney Alysse Skye is one Funny Lady see her awesome blog here).
It runs super late so you kind of need to be on vacation / unemployed to stay long enough to perform, but the actual show is fun and finishes by like 11pm
(ps. it's a total BroFEST so ladies get over there and do your thing!!)
