Stand Up Comedy – my years of one-liners
May 31, 2010 § 1 Comment
Yes, I was a stand up comedian many years ago. This happened by default. I went to watch stand comedy at the Comedy Warehouse in Cape Town. The year was 2003. I looked at the people on stage and said to myself, “Self, you can do this.”
I decided to do it. However I didn’t want to be a black comedian doing black jokes. My material was very dry one-liner kind of stuff. So there, I was a stand-up comedian. Whether I was funny or not is up for debate. This is when I was younger, thinner, faster and uglier.
