    First Paid Gig

    I just got my first paid gig as an MC at an open mic.  I've been doing material at this club for weeks and the owner asked do I want to take the gig for the night.   I am just about as pumped as I can be.

    British Stand Up Comedy.

    Lee Mack is a British stand up comedian & I'd love to see him on his current tour.I have seen several guys who I liked on TV (including Greg Proops) but liked Jo Brand (a woman) best. She does knob jokes far better than any man.
