I'll give you props for that.

What have you identified as your comedy shtick?

Hello Paul. I have not yet discovered what my " Angle " is, so to speak. I don't want to seem contrived on stage, or TOO weird and creepy, because off stage I'm a very normal and quiet boring person. I know one thing, I have a very dark sense of humor, but I didn't do any of that material. I also have quite a few bits on appearance-wearing glasses, being skinny and out of shape, etc etc.

I can't really put into words how hard it is to write material, and say it in a way that makes people laugh. Anytime I get a laugh, I'm a little surprised, because that one little laugh-I probably put 20 plus hours into perfecting it.


I know my delivery needs work, people can sense when you're uneasy, the very best comedians don't have that aura about them. I could listen to Louis CK all day, because all of his material is very natural sounding. And the reason I uploaded my performance, is I KNEW some people wouldn't like it-if I can't take criticism, I need to get out of the field now. But I can, because the act of doing is superior to the act of being a critic.

Awkward isn't funny, it makes the audience uncomfortable which usually doesn't lead to laughter.

Self deprecating humor is as well as observational humor.

It's hard to get a laugh when you start a joke with "I saw my mother pleasuring herself....."

"I'm bald, weigh 90 pounds wet and am unemployed. To put all the rumors to rest, yes I'm still single."

You should have stopped your act right there, that was funny.
The rest is garbage. You should be embarrassed of yourself.

I think the angle part is key - you get something that separates you out from other comics, writing becomes easier, and you become comfortable with the material.

Good luck.

i have to assume you were very nervous.

comedy is not easy. you have to be able to connect with your audience.

that being said, i give you credit for trying, but, that was rather vanilla. you seemed a little too monotone, and the material was kinda plain.

not trying to sound like a creep, just how i saw it.

Ok... I finally believe you are a real person.

Don't you have some material from the dates you've been on recently? You seem to post some funny experiences here.
