Last night I had the awesome pleasure of performing at The Down Under comedy club in Greeley. I gave em ten min of my best dick and fart jokes and they loved it. I went on third after a new guy crashed the vibe and buried the room. I came out swinging with my A list and hooked em quick. The small yet attentive crowd hung on my every word, and gave me all the love and laughs I so desperately seek. Its what I got into comedy for. This is a really great venue on the verge of closing down and that saddens me on multiple levels. Without venues like The Down Under, local comics wouldn’t have a place to practice and grow. Without local comics, there are no national comics. It works just like music. As a local comic, I feel a small part of something I love die every time a room closes. On the flip side, new mic’s are popping up every month as a result of a growing scene that demands it. Where it gets interesting is how different comics act like the mics they frequent are the ones that count. I am of the impression that any mic time is good , a switch up in mics is essential for both your comedy and networking. Get out and hit a new mic or return to an old fav you’ve neglected. Just get out and support the scene. It’s a big one and worth diving into.
Support local comedy.
