So you know how excited I was yesterday about the ad. Well, last night Lee, the guy who taught the stand-up classes I attended, called and said he'd recommended me to a comedy club in Madison, WI. And that I needed to call the manager.
Then today, I got a sweet comment on MySpace from George Sarris, who runs the NYC Underground Comedy Festival. He's someone I admire, and it was neat that he wrote something.
So while I was writing this, I thought I might as well call Amy right now, and I did. So I'm booked at Comedy on State Street in Madison on July 27. It's a real short set because it's an open mic night, but the cool thing is that normally you have to audition, but because Lee recommended me, I don't have to. That feels good.
Lee also recommended I call the manager at Giggles Comedy Pub. I've performed there twice, but they were showcases for people who took Lee's class, rather than a regular show. So I need to get my courage up and call there.
