My first open mic, I was the only one that did stand-up. 1/3 of the audience laughed (mostly black women. Black women LOVE me, son!) 1/3 were confused, and 1/3 were pissed off at the sheer audacity of someone trying to be funny in the near vicinity of poetry and music.

The guy hosting it was super excited when I told him I wanted to try it. "Oh, great! Make fun of these whiny poets and terrible singers!"

With as much as you've been getting bumped, your set should be tight as fuck. Wish I could be there when you finally take the mic.

Shitty week. Callback for two leads in a new netflix show. Didnt get it. Went to Producers for Shameless. Really wanted that. Didnt get it. Although that session was in front of John Wells so maybe I'll see something out of it in the future? Read for one of the 3 leads (two others have been cast) in Chaos Walking. Up for a lead in a Sag Ultra low to play twins. They loved one of my reads for one twin and wasn't feeling it for the other twin. So they did ask me to reread for that twin and to put something on tape. My parents did send me groceries so that was a win.

What Shameless in the US?
The UK series is brilliant (or was: only saw 2 seasons)

these next coming weeks is exciting for me.

1. shooting my biggest and most complex short film yet next week saturday, complex in the fact it is dialogue heavy and requires my artistic talent to make it different.. I have Gorillaonabike helping so I know I will have a good standing.

2. My normal job is going down the pan, I was promoted however I have decided to step down after only a short while because I realised it was taking me away from film, in contrast to this I have decided to take a shot at making showreels for actors, when I saw the costs I realised I could make a very decent living if I did this thing well.. so im gonna take a shot at it.

3. tomorrow I buy the costume for my short film, going for the late 80's early 90's look.. hope I can pull it off.

I did it!! I did open mic stand up.

I had no plans or expectations of it, I was just going up there to watch.
A couple of the comics I've seen around convinced me to sign up and I went on stage without any preparation or notes. I completely forgot to tell my two favorite jokes!!!

But the set was everything I could have hoped for. People laughed at every single joke i told. I killed it. And forgetting my favorite jokes + a few others leaves me with some really killer new material for monday when i try sidebar for my 3rd week in a row.
