It’s easy to start dismissing open mics when you’re getting “paid gigs.” Some people see open mics as only auditions for bookers. I am making a passionate case for why this is not true. All stage time is good stage time. Get all the stage time you can! Besides, you need to go see your Comedy Mom at least once a week. She misses you.

We are talking all about self deprecating humor. What it is, how it helps, and how to keep it from going too far.

Plus, Comedy Mom gets a little passionate at the end talking about the true purpose in the world as stand up comedians.

The 4th annual End of Year Roast! This tradition started in 2016 because that year sucked. Every year since has said “Hold My Beer.” 2019 was not to be undone.

This show will be explicit and probably offensive for some. Expect a lot of jokes about politics, social issues, and anything else that has been in the news the last year. And, Epstein didn’t kill himself. Ok, Boomer?
