"So i did stand up comedy for the first time :)"


          

a friend in Brooklyn throws a Monday night event in his backyard called "The Bomb Shelter"..a safe space for comics, seasoned and new, to try out jokes and bomb lol

it was hella fun..i had been writing a few jokes for a while..tweaking them, etc...i thought i had 5 min, but they only lasted about 3 and a half minutes cuz i was talking too fast and didn't wait longer between jokes like i'd planned

i didn't bomb tho, which is awesome...got a few laughs and a few guffaws... i memorized my set and had decent transitions..just gotta work on my delivery and write a little more material...looking forward to doing it again

I'm always down to hear some comedy, I've always been in to those television stand up comedy shows.

Cool, I'm gonna watch this, I'll give feedback later.

In response to Reply # 18


  

          

I thought you did great, not sure how much time they let people have but I wished you went on a little more (maybe that's all the material you had for your first time, I guess you didn't want to wear out your welcome on your first go around if it wasn't going as planned).

Anyway I liked it, loved the Chappelle joke, even if the audience didn't, lol; keep writing, you got the skills.

On a side note, what is the deal with this spot "Bomb Shelter", is it always outside, the outside noise was kind of annoying.

that's all i had LOL but i'm writing a little more about dating married men...i wanna go deeper into that...and more into the experience of being 50, while avoiding cliches about aging as much as I can

thanks and I agree its a good joke, but i gotta work the punchline better. the host of the show let out a late gaffaw, which I REALLY loved cuz he's a comic himself

yeah its always in his backyard. if it were indoors, i don't think i would go, quite honestly LOL

I laughed at a lot of your material. The joke about the married woman asking you to spend more time with you was really good and original.

I always wondered if I could be a comedian. I used to rock stages so I’m not shy once the mic is on hand but with no music and it being all on you.. I’m sure its much harder than it looks.

you could do it...especially if you're already used to being on stage...especially if you lean into the awkwardness of being new to it in your jokes maybe

and had people doubled over with laughter. It’s always impromptu shit, though. I do NOT think I could deliver like that when people come with the expectation of laughing. That’s a whole different thing. Sounds like you have “it”. Good stuff.

She's naturally hilarious, the funniest person I've ever met, and I think she'd kill it on stage. She'd be more in the Robin Williams style of comedy, off the cuff, tangents, etc.

A buddy of mine has been doing smalltime standup for a couple years now. He recently moved to NYC and has done open mics in Brooklyn. I'll have to ask him if he's ever been to the Bomb Shelter. It'd be great if you ran into him haha. Inbox me if you want his name to see if you come across him !

The Bomb Shelter just started a couple weeks ago...run by Harlem River Yacht Club / Ohene Cornelius so if he's plugged in there he would know about it...
