Coffee in Boston with a Fellow Comedian
snlbound: I got a very nice email from a man named Dan this week. He’s a comedian from south of Boston who runs a Tumblr called Comedy is Weird. We’re getting coffee this week! If I don’t post about it afterward it’s because I drove 40 minutes from home to meet a stranger who found me on the Internet through a site that doesn’t even require it’s users to confirm their email when creating an...

Minneapolis comedy is ay-okay in my book
Hey guys- As some of you know, I do stand up in Boston. But, this weekend, I was in Minneapolis for a college workshop and I thought I’d check out the MN comedy scene.

Alex Mann: Standing Up
Here’s an essay by Alex Mann, musing on his first time on stage. The essay definitely rings true for most comedians starting out, so give it a read. Alex can be found on his Twitter page. Here’s the essay: Five blocks away. I walked at an even pace down the sidewalk, speeding up to cross intersections before cars received their green light. I approached an intersection as the light...
iamalanpartridge: I really can’t stomach stand up comedians or the concept in general. The idea of getting on a stage for two hours with the sole intention of making people laugh is just cringeworthy. huh.
