Mike Cronin has returned…again.
Well, it’s been a while since I blogged about myself like the egomaniacal maniac that I am, but that is all about to change. And I’m being super serial this time, not like the other time when I said I would start again. Or the first time when I said I would blog period. Those times can shove it.
This time is different because this time I’m being graded. I’m doing an independent study on stand up comedy and my attempts at it. Yes, I will be embarking on the noble path of social commentary, classic word play, and dick jokes. But, I wont just be talking about my own stand up, I’ll also be profiling New York club venues, as well as some of my favorite performers on a weekly basis. Honestly, I can’t believe this counts as school, I mean Youtube is considered course material.
If you’re a fan of stand up, stay tuned! I want to know how I do, both as a performer and as a researcher. If I talk about a comedian and don’t post one of their greatest sets or something, tell me. I’m doing this because I want to learn more, so I openly admit that I won’t ever nail everything perfectly. For instance, if you feel like recommending some performers or places to check out in the comments below, just do it. But I have to go now, I’m off to my first open mic night. And I have a feeling it will go as well as you’d expect one’s first gig to go.
You know what though? That’s ok. I am terrified of bombing, but I refuse to let that stop me. Everybody bombs when they first start, it’s just how learning a new skill goes. So I say, let those bombs fall.
Mike Cronin is officially getting into stand up.
