Second open mic of the new year went alright. Ras Restaraunt and Cafe in Washington DC just started doing an open mic in December. It was a small crowd (15ish) and the ratio was about two comics per audience member. Every comedian had a rough set. It is hard making invisible people laugh... and even harder making apathetic bar patrons laugh. All of that being said, it was a good set overall.
I'm still struggling with one of my new bits. Part of it is the set up and part is selling the joke... Fair to say, the joke is very much a work in progress. Highlight of my set was a semi-adlibbed bit which involved reciting Old Dirty Bastard lyrics. It was fun and got a big laugh.
