comedic crossroads

Filed under: comedy — phil @ 4:51 am

i’m beginning to think my return to the bats sunday players was a bad idea. actually, yes it was a bad idea. much has changed in the year i was gone and it’s just not fun anymore. many of the players who helped me develop and push my improvisational potential have decided their time’s up on the just make stuff up stage. and i just may join them.

i’m reading a book by judy carter called The Comedy Bible: From Stand-up to Sitcom–The Comedy Writer’s Ultimate “How To” Guide. it’s teaching me a lot about joke writing and stand-up and i just may take the leap and give stand up a shot. there are a few things in the book that i’d like to take to the improv stage so there’ll be another month or 2 for me at bats. but after that, look out for me at an open mic near you!
