“I love doing standup. It’s like walking on a tightrope-- over a pool of sharks... while people hack at the rope with machetes.” Me

After seeing me perform 3 times, Mitzi Shore made me a Paid Regular at The Comedy Store on The world famous Sunset Strip. I had been doing standup for a little over a year after. She thought I'd been doing it for 10 years (I have been told Mitzi gave me the nod in record time; beating out Jamie Foxx)

My standup "Gods" are many. Among them: Richard Pryor, George Carlin. Lenny Bruce. Robin Williams. Lewis Black. Chris Rock. Woody Allen (Shut it!) Steve Martin, Dave Chappelle and of course... David Hasselhoff
 

The clip below is early me. Jake, BC (Before {not} Caring {What the audience thinks}) About 8 months after I started doing standup I was invited to do this gig in a club in NYC (Shite. I forget the name of the club) I have this clip on here so when you come see me now you can see my vast improvement. Or lack there of :)

 

Okay I really have it on here to remind myself how far I've come... and how easy it can be to fall back
