The Resurrection and Stand Up Comedy


There are plenty of Christian comics out there and the material they perform is often times, squeaky clean and non-controversial and there are other Christian comics out there whose material isn’t quite as clean. Although I don’t use curse words in my act, some of my material can be interpreted as less than Christian-like. WhenContinue reading “The Resurrection and Stand Up Comedy”

Top 10 Reasons Why I Hate Doing Stand Up Comedy


HERE WE GO: 10. Inviting friends and family to my shows knowing full well they’ve heard my jokes over 100 times. 9. I look fat on stage. 8.

Things That Make You Go, “Ugh!”


I will never claim to be funnier than any other stand up comedian. I truly believe that comedy is subjective. That is to say that what makes me laugh will not necessarily make you laugh. Having said that, there are some things that make me shudder when I watch relatively new comics take to theContinue reading “Things That Make You Go, “Ugh!””

The Evolution of the Stand Up Comedian


I’ve noticed an evolution of sorts, in the way stand-up comedy is honed. I suppose that you can say the same thing about most any occupation? If we all have to “Start somewhere”, then it stands to reason that, with the passing of time, you are never the same as when you started. For thoseContinue reading “The Evolution of the Stand Up Comedian”

Humility With a Name Like “Iggy”


I don’t consider myself a professional stand up comic yet. I’ve been in the business for 7 years now, and in that time have earned well over…six hundred bucks. I know a little more than the comic who has done it for a less amount of time but I have a TON more to learn.Continue reading “Humility With a Name Like “Iggy””

Think Classy, You’ll Be Classy


“Your shower shoes have fungus on them. You’ll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, you’ll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back on your shower shoes and the press’ll think you’re colorful. Until you win 20 in theContinue reading “Think Classy, You’ll Be Classy”

Stand Up Comedy Open Mic


I believe that stand up is one of the purest forms of entertainment. Although it feels like anything can happen, the comedian is more than prepared for every situation and you’re almost always assured of getting a good show! Ah, but an open mic! That’s entirely different! An open mic night allows anyone to getContinue reading “Stand Up Comedy Open Mic”

Look At Me!!


When a comic gets asked, “Why did you want to do stand up comedy?” The majority of the answers you’ll read will be, “I’ve always enjoyed making people laugh.” And to that, I’ve gotta say “B.S.!” Although that is a nice “pie in the sky” answer, it comes no where near the real reason. IContinue reading “Look At Me!!”
