I Love Stand Up Comedy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,464 People

    Soon I'm gonna be a stand up comedian.

    My girlfriend and I are running away together so since we'll need an income I will be doing stand up. I'm only 15 so I can't really get a job yet. I'm a storyteller. I have been inspired by stand ups such as Gabriel Iglesias and Louis C. K. Before my depression and my parents...

    About this time, someone is telling you to get

    on the plane. "Get on the plane, get on the plane." I say, "F--k you, I'm getting in the plane! In the plane! Let Evil Knievel get on the plane! I'll be in here with you folks in uniform. There seems to be less wind in here."

    I Have Always Liked Observational Humor

    the comedians that manage to think about everyday things in that random and obscure way always seem to make me laugh. R.I.P. mitch hedberg.

    My Bucket List

    I did it! I did a stand up routine. The audience laughed out loud. The dude with the key to the door gave me a high five when I walked off the stage. How cool was that?I want to do it again some day.

    As soon as they close the door to the aircraft,

    that's when they begin the safety lecture". I love the safety lecture. This is my favorite part of the airplane ride. I listen very carefully to the safety lecture, especially that part where they teach us how to use the seat belts. Imagine this: Here we are, a plane full of...

    Love Love Love Stand Up Comedy

    A good stand up comedian is my instant remedy when I'm feeling low. There are many I'm into but Bill Hicks has been my absolute favourite for years now. I also love George Carlin and have seen all his routines. I recently discovered (or found out about, rather) Joe Rogan. He's...

    Lived In A Small Town...

    and they turned one of the bars into a comedy club. This was back in late 70's! Anyway it became the thing to do and in all honesty there was not alot to choose from. So the comedians would cycle through and some would be good and some would so but there was no one you would...

    You know I think I've been living under a rock

    for the last 20 years. I can't believe I've never seen Russell Peters. I was fortunate enough to catch his show tonight and am now a big fan. He is Canadian but of Indian descent and now lives in the US. His show doesn't feel like a typical comedy act. It was more like a...

    People think hockey is a sport.

    Hockey is not sport. Hockey is three activities going on at the same time: ice skating, playing with a puck, and beating the sh** out of somebody. If these guys were intelligent at all, they would do these things one at a time. First you go ice-skating, then you play with a puck...

    I watched every episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus on DVD. I also saw every episode of Faulty Towers. It was some of the funniest stuff I ever saw.
