Watch My AXS TV Gotham Comedy Live Audition Audition!

So, here was my full stand-up comedy set from Gotham Comedy Club on Wednesday, August 27th. As I mentioned in my post promoting this event, the booker told me he’d pick 1 person from this show to audition for AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live. I’m 99% sure he didn’t pick me.

Anyway, I told jokes about the CEO of Cold-Eeze, my severe sweating problem, and other super serious stuff. Despite timing my set to come in at around 6 – 6:30 minutes, I went almost 7:30. There’s always one hiccup that causes me to lose my place; this time it was mentioning that I love my girlfriend. I hope to get to a point where crowd reactions don’t throw my concentration off; but rather I can respond to them in a humorous way then continue on my way.

This was a later show (9:30pm start) going into a long holiday weekend, so maybe the audience was too full from dinner or too focused on their weekend plans to fart out some hardy-hars. Some people thought maybe I went on too early – I was on second after Billy Prinsell – an emerging talent whose comedy is a little more abstract than mine, which is saying a lot since the majority of my jokes leave people looking like they’re on a tarmac.

Maybe I was a little too robotic / rehearsed. I know I need to be more natural on the stage, interact more with the audience / ask more questions? Whatever the case is, every time I’m hanging out with friends, they make suggestions about what I should put in my act. And I guarantee if I took their suggestions, I’d bomb so hard, wiggas wouldn’t be able to find me. That sheet crayon. Love you guys, but some things are better off ‘in the moment’. If I had a nickelodeon for every time someone said, “You should put that in your act” over the past month, I’d have the planet covered in green slime.
