Stand Up

So it's been a while since I've posted, and it's going to be a while again, since I'm heading to Minnesota for a quick little vacation. I'm sure there will be stories when I come back. But to tide you over, I'm going to go ahead and put up the video of my stand-up comedy act that I performed about a month ago.

Mind you, it clearly won't be as funny over the internet as it was in person. And if you want to go ahead and have a couple drinks before watching it, that would probably help too. But it was a good time, and there's been enough requests, so I'll put it up.


You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht

Tough crowd, tough crowd.

Good for you Matt. Bad jokes... but good for you.

No jokes about statuatory rape and Palin's daughter? You will never make it as a writer for Letterman.

Oh come on, some of the jokes were good.

The crowd was tough. Largely because they were tired (I was 10th, quite late in the night) and they were getting their checks while I was on stage, and were therefore distracted. It really stunk.

Oh, I admit, I laughed my arse off on the whole "6-year-old trapped in a 12-year-old's body".

When are you doing Las Vegas?

Nate said...

Not bad Matt!

I definitely laughed more than your audience did. And hey, its probably better than the stand-up routine that I wrote.

I loved the baby kicking joke. And my kid looked more like a squid than a chicken...
