I'm trying to be good, so I'm going to not break my ass trying to blog it all out on day one.
I have thought for a while that an ongoing space for writing short reflections on stand-up comedy would be useful. My original ambition was to review comedy recordings not when they come out (necessarily) but to go back and try to review some classic and not so classic ones.
But the book is now in press, so I have the mercenary objective of bringing attention to that too, while also being a place for readers to keep up an ongoing conversation. There are also opportunities for putting performances online that, in book form, were only available through transcription. And sometimes there's simply funny stuff that I want to share.
So I'll keep it short and sweet for today, and I'll probably tweak the site until it looks pretty. In the meantime, here is what is currently my favourite routine. It is amazing how much this makes me giggle like a school girl.
