Welcome to all who have made the decision to check out this blog.
First of all, I'm certain you all are probably thinking, SHIT, another stupid blogger and his dumb opinions. Well, you are sort of right, but not really. Yes, this will be a site for my opinions, but hopefully the things that I say in here will be informative and helpful to those in the comedy community. Whether you are a comedian, an actor, and improv performer, or just a friend or fan of comedy, I hope to provide you with information that will possibly guide you down the path of the world that is comedy.
WELL, WHO THE FUCK AM I?
Well here's a bit of info for the readers out there.
I am the former owner of Red Door Tavern Restaurant /Comedy Venue. I say venue because it was not a club in the traditional form of a club. Along with that, I am the booker and promoter for the majority of comedy shows in the Midlands of South Carolina, having worked with such comedians as Doug Stanhope (The Man Show), Dave Stone and Tim Northern (Last Comic Standing), JT Habersaat (Altercation Punk Comedy Tour), THREEZUS (3 writers from Tosh.0), and many more. Hopefully this experience will help me to inform comedians of what it is that I look for when booking shows in my area.
Also, I am a comedian. I have been on four tours in the last year and a half and am consistently performing regionally across the south. With five years in comedy and over fourteen years of acting experience, I am pretty knowledgeable of stage time and the importance of practice and patience.
I'm not the best at talking about the things that I have accomplished, but hopefully this gives you a little insight into who I am and why you should or should not read my blog. If you need more, my bio is on the website sodacitystandup.com.
HOW'S THIS THING GONNA GO?
This blog will be a bunch of different formats. It will range from an advice piece all the way to a simple photo blog of tours and shows. A hodgepodge of different aspects of comedy and even some behind the scenes info that is always fun to read about or see.
ARE YOU STILL READING?????
If so, then great. I hope you keep coming back and reading more and more. Feel free to leave any comments below, and I look forward to babbling on and you hopefully enjoying it all. Safe Travels My Friends.
