“Dying is easy, comedy is hard.” - George Seaton

And isn't it true, whether one does it for fun, wants to make a career out of it, or does it on a dare while drunk, there are a lot of people who want to, or are doing stand-up comedy. This is the story of the budding comedian. No pulled punches, plenty of puns.

A few months ago I decided to try my hand (again) at stand up comedy. I did one or two open mics during high school, and thought ‘Well, I’m in college now, surely I can get away with more jokes now.' And I found out I had a lot to learn about comedy, presentation, proffffffffffesionalism, and a lot more crap.
