Roasts, and more…

I like Roasts. Both culinary and comedic. But this article is not supposed to be about my indulgences at the last family BBQ, but about the recent broadcasts of the celebrity roasts on Comedy Central Germany.

The roasts were presented by Desiree Nick, who is known for having a sharp tongue, but in the light of what is being said at these roasts she still seems kinda nice. And her overacting and exaggerated facial contortions don’t really make her presentation more enjoyable. After the previews I actually thought she’d be the right choice for this, but after seeing her in action I am a little disappointed on how this worked out.

Comedy Withdrawal

It’s been 1.5 months since I moved back to Germany, and 2 months since my last performance at the TakeOut Comedy Club, giving a great opening performance for the very funny Wali Collins.
Since then I haven’t been on stage, but I feel that soon it’s time to get back into performing.

Gearing up for my last show.

Tomorrow, on Saturday, July 23rd, I will be having my last regular show at the TakeOut Comedy Club Hong Kong. It’s not my last show, that will be opening the 8PM show for Wali Collins on July 30th, but it’s the last regular show with some of the other guys from the club. The last show where people do not come to see a pro from the US, but us locally bred comics. Or maybe even me. Yes, that actually happened once. Or at least there is one instance I know of. And it certainly is something special. My farewell show.

There being only 1 days left before this show I think it is time to think about the past, the present and, of course, the future.

So this past weekend we held our 2nd Annual TakeOut Comedy Charity Comedython for the Hong Kong Dog Rescue. 12 hours of comedy to help saving a bunch of cute, little puppies from the frying pan.

Despite the, quite honestly totally useless, typhoon warning 1 it was a nice day, if hotter than hell during a forest fire can be counted as nice.
Due to the infernal heat and my inability to find the right exit of the MTR station the walk from Causeway Bay station to Champs Bar wasn’t quite as pleasurable as it could have been. Upon my arrival, panting, sweating and generally in disagreement with the Hong Kong climate, I was approached by Pete Grella over the possibility to do a set, a few hours before I was scheduled to perform. Because I love going on stage and doing my thing I agreed to that in a heartbeat. And at a rate of 450 beats per minute that was pretty quick.

At absolutely no expense to myself or others I have decided to use the vast amount of time of about 1 minute to add an additional page to my blog.

Thus, now and henceforth, you can see, live and in color, the dates of upcoming shows I’ll be performing in right here on my blog.
I know, amazing, isn’t it?

Thank you!

Assuming their existence, for the sake of this statement, the comedy gods have been good to me lately.

As I have said before, I have started the comedy year strong. And I am very happy to say that I have kept the momentum going, if not even increased it, since then.

Since February, when I celebrated my 2nd anniversary of having people laugh at me, quite a bit has happened. Thus I figured it may be time for another update. And also because I haven’t been blogging for a while and found this would be a good reason to get going again.

February 13th 2009 was the first time I got to do a show at the TakeOut Comedy Club Hong Kong.
After attending the workshop in January and doing only 3 open mic sessions owner and founder Jami Gong asked me if I wanted to do a few minutes on a show I came to watch.
I wasn’t really prepared for this, but somehow insanity won out over reason and I did it.
It wasn’t great and I wasn’t really comfortable on stage, but it wasn’t all bad either. And most importantly, I did it!
Since then 2 years have passed, with ups and downs, but clearly more ups. It’s been a wild ride so far, and I’m ready for more.
