RE: Be a stand up comedian
Round 2

I completely bombed.

I went 18th tonight out of roughly 25, so I had a lot more time to overthink what I was going to say and have an extra vodka soda. After much debate, I decided to add an opening line at the last moment that was somewhat, almost funny. It fucked up my entire rhythm and I drew a blank about 15 seconds into the set. I completely forgot how to do my horny spanish girl impression, which was supposed to be my crowd pleaser. I performed a hackjob of the 2nd half of my act, threw in some self deprecating humor, and ran the fuck off the stage.

Pros:
-I kept my cool even while completely fucking up. My friend who taped me said my relaxed demeanor makes the audience feel at ease.
-I remember to move the mic stand out of the way.

Cons:
-I was too confident after my first show. I thought everything I was going to say was gold.
-I memorized my whole performance nearly word for word. It sounded canned, which it was. I did not allow my personality to shine through at all, which helped me in my first attempt.
-Had too much to drink. Just like when I'm talking to girls, 2 drinks is the sweet spot for my humor, 4 drinks and my brain starts to crap out a bit.
-Going 18th sucked for a multitude of reasons. It's best to go early if possible.
-Trying to be funny instead of being funny. Hard to explain in detail, but it was easy to see in many other comedians tonight, including myself.

Although I had a terrible outing, I still want to keep going. I'll post toinght's fail once my friend uploads it.
