Booed off the Stage at my Home Club

There’s a story comedians will often tell each other after a bad set, and that is the story of Dave Chapelle getting booed off the stage at the Apollo Theatre, back when he was a teen in the early 90′s. It’s a comforting story to a comic who just bombed, because Chapelle became such a huge success after what sounds like a bombing way worse than anything you or I (until recently) have experienced.

After taking a few weeks off to focus on other things, this week I’m performing at several of my favorite showcases all over the Bay Area. I don’t know when I’ll be doing a week like this again in a long time, so if you have the chance to come see a set I’d appreciate it. This one is tomorrow! Here are some others for the next few days:Wednesday, July 25th at 8pm: Rooster T. Feathers in SunnyvaleThursday, July 26th at 9pm: Comet Club in San Francisco (Marina neighborhood)There are a couple of other things that might also happen but require further planification. After this week, I’m back to work on things that don’t require me to stand around in bars with 22-year-olds.
