    I like the material, agreed that the one liner thing is hard to pull off because you need a lot of material, but you seem good at it.

    My personal take? Lose the ukelele during the monologue. I know it's like a security blanket but you'll be better off in the long run.

    You need any one liners you come to me. $5 bucks a joke.

    This one is free - my sex life is like Abraham Lincoln.........my last four scores were seven years ago.

    Thanks for the advice. In my defense the vast majority of the gig was sans instruments.

    Amputees are just like everybody else:

    Stand up Comedy

    Quick update of this whole comedy thing. I'm still doing semi regular gigs here in Columbus but have yet to get out of town. I started hosting events too. I just hosted a joke telling competition at the gateway film center and will be emceeing a Woodstock esque festival at the end if April to benefit tree planting efforts in our city's parks. I'm not a millionaire yet, but at least I can say I'm a professional.

    Congratulations. I don't know if I could do it. People say I'm funny, but I'm usually just reacting to the situation. So I think I'd be better at improv. I don't think I'm good at setting up my own jokes. Plus I don't enjoy hecklers.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    You suck
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
