Hi fans of comedy. I usually don’t write on Wednesdays but we had a hole in our schedule and what the heck I’ve got something I can write about. Tonight (Nov. 12) I’ll be performing in the Boston Comedy Festival at 9pm.
So I guess I would just like to talk here about some of the things going through my head as the hour approaches. First of all, money. I’m spending a lot of time thinking about the prize money and how much that would help me get by on just comedy. Then I think about the credit. If a person wins the Boston Comedy Festival a lot of other doors open for them. Then I think about the competition. The preliminary round starts with 96 performers from all over the country and hundreds more that submit to it don’t get into the Festival. And their are some really great comics that don’t get in. So I know I’m up against some tough competition. Of the 96 comics only 24 move on to the semi final round and of those 24 only 8 move on to the finals AND OF THOSE 8 only 1 comedian wins the cash prize of $10,000. Soooo I have got my work cut out for me.
Here’s an interview with myself:
