A Little Stand-Up Action

Last Tuesday, I experienced what will forever be known as my Epic Day of Failure. Well, I guess it won’t forever be known as that, but at least until my next epic day of failure comes along.

Yesterday, exactly one week after my Epic Day of Failure, I found myself at the other end of the suicidal thoughts/pure bliss spectrum. First, I had an extremely fun day interviewing Torontonians as part of my recent gig with Virgin Mobile. Then I capped the day off by performing a well-received set at Yuk Yuk’s in Toronto.

As a relatively new comedian, I can’t begin to describe how much of a confidence boost my set at Yuk Yuk’s provided. After failing miserably at Comedy Bar last week, it was incredibly re-assuring to remember that I am in fact capable of making people laugh.

Below you’ll find some video footage of my set. It is up on my YouTube channel, djdemerscomedy. If you subscribed to my videos, you would have already known that it was up. Why haven’t you subscribed yet? I only have twelve subscribers. That is so, so sad.

The video cuts off after three minutes. There was still a solid two minutes of funniness coming up. My friend that filmed for me, Kevin, claims that the camera just randomly shut down. If this is true (and I’m not entirely sure it is, Kevin), then I am very upset with my camera. If it was actually Kevin’s fault and not the camera’s, then I am not mad at Kevin. Simply because he is bigger than me.

Thanks for checking in, guys and gals. Let me know what you think of the stand-up. Unless you didn’t enjoy it. Censorship is awesome!
