Another open mike, more lessons of comedy. My pal Anthony emceed last night and there were a few newbs, so you never know what to expect. One guy, a white stonerish looking fellow, with a bleached blonde hair I can only describe as cotton-like walked up to take the stage for the first time ever. He turned towards Ant and said, “Let’s give it up for the Pillsbury Doughboy!” Oh no he didn’t!!!
What happened next was sweet justice. He bombed so hard, he actually quit early AND apologized to the crowd for not being funny. Then Anthony took the mike and dripping with venom, proceeded to fake laud his hilarious set. “Good thing he opened with that great joke! Too bad he forgot I’m up here 20 more times tonight!” It warmed my heart, or at least that hole where my heart should be. I hope the newbie tries that on me. I’ll probably say something snappy like “Go fly a kite, sir!” or “Take a long walk off a short pier, my good man!” BURN!
