RE: Be a stand up comedian
I have tried 2 open mics at home(Ireland) short 5 mins sets very nerve wracking but you are on a real high afterwards especially if you get a few laughs. I was encouraged by a friend to do it which was helpful as I probably wouldn't have done it on my own even though I wanted to for a long time. The Nuances that make you a good comedian are the same as being good at picking up chicks, confidence, timing, humor, Dealing with obstacles(hecklers/bitchy women) and being able to think on your feet when your routine goes downhill.

The best way to start is open Mics, dont tell any one your doing it incase you bail, or they show up and make you nervous/heckle u. Write out a simple 5 minute set, make sure each joke/part has a punch line, so people know to laugh. Could be 5 short stories, 1 min long each with a really good punch line at the end of eac and a few small ones thrown in along the way. write about something you know, online dating experience, friend getting drunk doing something stupid, as it will be easier to write about and talk about when your on stage.

Best of Luck
