This is so close to my apartment I would be a fool not to attend.

Wish I could! Is this a regular event, will it be happening again soon?

As of right now, it is not a regular event. If I get a good response to this show, maybe I'll do it again in Astoria.

I have another performance this Saturday, 23 April, in the basement of Greenpoint Reformed Church in Brooklyn, 8pm. 136 Milton Street between Manhattan and Kent. I should probably post another IRL about that...

Directions: Take the G train to Greenpoint, and get out on the Greenpoint Ave. side, or take the 7 or L train and then grab the B62 bus to Greenpoint Ave. Pass the 7-Eleven and turn the corner at Milton. It's the small white church on the left hand side of the street. Careful to come to the basement, not the meeting hall; we are not the AA meeting!

Thanks to whimsicalnymph for coming to the show last night! I didn't see any other MeFites there, and sorry if I missed you. If you live in NYC and missed last night's show, please consider coming to the Greenpoint show tomorrow!

Measurements: last night, I performed for 24 and a half minutes in front of 24 audience members. I delivered approximately 132 punchlines (that people laughed at); that is 5.39 laughable punchlines/minute, or a laugh every eleven seconds. I can afford to go slower and breathe a little, instead of rushing to the next punchline. Am slowly learning to do so.
