Necessity is the mother of invention, and I had a necessity to track my comedic progress in a quantifiable way. The only way to get better at something is to have a consistent feedback loop of measurable information. This applies to nearly everything we do in life. I have created this online / IPad application that will help comics track their progress and see how they improve and are doing against the Pros.
I created the ability to tag the track time with the name of the bit you just delivered and developed a graphic representation of the laugh cycles with relation to your total set.
This will not make you funnier! But it is a tool to help shed some light on some areas of Improvement.
Have fun with this, and check out the scores from watching the pros on YouTube.
Last night I had a great set, I crushed my first Biker bar. Great crowd, easy going people who were there to laugh and have a good time.
At first, I was unsure how I would be received, but I just got down to business and did my thing…They loved it. It was a good feeling to kill in front of a different type of crowd.
All in all, It was a great time.
Working out some new material…
Bill Burr is my personal favorite comedian. He has Inspired me on many levels to be “real” and authentic as a comic.
This was a great experience hosting an outdoor comedy show for Dallas PARKing days in Deep Ellum.
That is where tons of businesses and vendors take over paid parking spots all over the city and make then into little Micro parks.
3 min, super clean, in and out! no body gets hurt!
Great crowd, very well run.
This Joke Bombed:
“I finally found something MORE boring that watching Baseball on Tv……
Watching little league baseball on TV!….”
Sounded funny in my head. : )
(My photographer was out. Imagine me up on stage this time.)
This was my first Hyenas experience. I stood in the Texas heat for 2 hours to get on the sign-up sheet early. Although this experience was less than desirable, it’s a part of paying your dues as a new comic on the scene. I went on 5th and had a pretty good set. I am much more comfortable on stage now as I have been practicing up to 2 hours a night. : )
Hyenas Comedy Club in Dallas is hosted by Patricia Sweeney. Patricia runs a tight ship and puts allot of effort into making sure show the goes smoothly. There are allot of moving parts that Patricia keeps pointed in the right direction as the night progresses. As many as 40 comics can go on in a single open Mic night, well into the A.M. hours.
Last night the graduating class performed their showcase at the Addison Improv. The show was sold out and packed to the rafters with a great audience.
- Tyson Faifer
- Celeste Seitz-Davis
- Bryan Rakestraw Yery
- Jeffrey Jay
- Michael O’Donnell
- Tom McDonough
- David Jessup
- Nick Mann
The graduating class did an outstanding job all round. I was a little nervous for some people when I heard there showcase sets the previous Sunday. This quickly faded as I witnessed the magic unfold. They all did a very very good job.
Paul Varghese was shooting his HBO special so we all were there to support him. He did an amazing solid 30+ minutes. Paul has a very relaxed style that soothes the audience into a comfortable place where takes them on his hilarious journey.
Last night I drove out to Ft, worth again to another great open Mic. This time I tried to slowed down and concentrated on my delivery. I also tried some new stuff and was much more relaxed on stage. The owners of “Percussions” were great hosts and the crowd was there to have fun. Overall it was a pretty decent 5 min.
Alison Egert was exceptional as she displayed what a seasoned veteran can do on the stage! She won the crowd pleaser prize! great work Alison.
