This open mic is, as always, just the worst ever. When I got there, there was a very young “comedian” telling “jokes” to a crowd of two of his “friends.” It was awful. And I had shown up, like, 30 minutes after when the show normally starts. The host informed me that the “comedian” on stage hadn’t signed up or waited to be introduced, he just started telling jokes.
I was asked to go on, even though I didn’t want to, in order to force the “comedian” to stop. I read all-new jokes out of my notebook. It did not go well. The jokes are okay.
