My fifth crack at stand up sucked... I did (the very funny) Rob Maher's room in Rockville, Md. I've always had a good time doing this room but tonight there was no audience and a group of people talking at the back of the bar. George Carlin could have come back from the dead and still bombed on this night in that room.
All of that being said, it was still a good experience and good to practice new jokes. I have about ten minutes worth of new material that I'm trying to shape and polish. So any chance to practice it is a good thing.
