I tried a new story-style set Wednesday night at Wiseguys Comedy Club. It came out pretty good, but I can see where it slows down and already have ideas to punch it up.
A while ago, when I was starting comedy, Marcus Hardy hosted the open mic one night and gave me the initial idea behind this story. My buddy Joe, who rides to school with me each day, helped me flesh out some of the backstory, you could call it.
I've been trying this idea of writing a little story for open mic each Wednesday when I'm in Salt Lake City. Two weeks ago, on Nov 2, I tried the first one of these. I heard my best reviews ever from other comics that night. I didn't get a recording, but I am planning to tell an expanded version of that story at Tellabration in Olympia on Nov 25.
