Today is 10 years since I first did stand up comedy in Portland at the Boiler Room with Gabe Dinger, Kevin Michael Moore, Bobby Hacker, Richard Bain, Kyle Harbert, Jimmy Newstetter, and Randy Mendez.
Hardly any of those guys do comedy anymore and the karaoke bar is now a Starbucks. I moved to Los Angeles and the beat goes on.
Ten years is thrown around as the time it takes to really find your voice as a comic and become consistent. I think I had my voice early on, but I will say I have a confidence in my writing that I didn’t used to have. We’ll see how the next ten years goes.
Here’s my stand up two years in.
Here’s my lid-blowing post about my first time.
