BUMMER [stand up comedy BLOGRMAGE: DAY 28]

This is the second week in a row I did not make the stand up comedy list. The frustrating thing is that there is no system or communication in place to inform me on what the problem is. Did I not perform well enough? Is their a process to earn a second spot? Did I do something wrong? These are the kind of questions I am asking. The manager, from what people have told me, is not friendly with comedians so that puts a stop to aggressively gaining a timeslot.

Oh well. This just means I should focus on other comedy spots. There is an open mike everyday of the week in Minnesota. Not all of them are ideal venues like the one I've been weekly attending, but I can't be pick when it comes to experience. The simple act of practicing, performing and writing material will grow me into a better comedian. Simply waiting for the best opportunities will deny me of the exponential growth of regular practice.

A copy of what my set would have been is posted above.
