Thread: So I did some stand-up comedy.......

  1. #1

    So I did some stand-up comedy.......

    and here it is...



    Background info:
    • It was the search for the South's funniest accountant (thereby severely limiting the competition...)
    • It was to raise money for a charity: Junior Achievement
    • It was in downtown Atlanta theatre, in front of 850 people
    • My mum and dad were there
    • I won
    • My mum cried


    Anyway, just thought y'all might be interested in the attempts of a fellow wheelchair enthusiast.....

    Great to put yourself out there like that. Great job.
    Especially the swing set story

    Absolutely great, especially as your first attempt at comedy. As both an accountant and para you are unique to the comedy scene. Seriously, consider getting some gigs. Maybe even an America's Got Talent" tryout.

    Nice job. The part about your wife hiding behind the furniture was really funny. One difference between the north and south, we up north hide behind the furniture to get away from those little creatures. lol
