Last night wasn’t a great triumph, but it was a nice night of comedy here. It was Memorial Day, so I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to get up once. But I headed over to 'The Creek and the Cave,’ which has daily open-mics at 6 pm, and ended up getting up and doing 5 minutes, even though it was just in front of seven other comics. Then I hopped on the train and headed to Manhattan, where I did an 8 pm open-mic at Eastville Comedy Club. There were 5 audience members and 5 other comics, but the show was actually a lot of fun, and I was really happy with the set I had.
After that show ended, another comic and I hopped back on the subway and headed back to Brooklyn, where we arrived just before a 9 pm open-mic was starting (at 9:35) at a bar called Stone Tavern. The “crowd” was once again just fellow comics, this time about ten, but I had a really good time talking out my thoughts on this clip I saw, and had a really good time with the set.
Then I walked around with my buddy Eli for a little while, killed time for 15 minutes or so, and then called it a night, getting home around 12:30.
So there was really nothing spectacular about last night. But it felt good to get three sets in on a Monday night and to feel like I’m hustling again. I’ve also made the decision that I’ll go ahead and focus on being funny sometimes, which I think may help accelerate any respect that I manage to gain from other comics up here. But that’s a blog for another day. This one was just to say that last night was a good night, and that I hope I have a few more like it.
