Recently I did a show where the crowd simply was not giving any of the comedians any laughs. I was closing out the show and immediately went up and shunned the crowd for not laughing at some very funny comedians before me, in a fun way. I went up and said basically how I didn't care if they didn't laugh because I will always remember the time when we as comedians were NOT allowed to do comedy.
I remember the moment when we were open in Chicago for a brief moment, only to be shut down again. My show I worked so hard on bringing back (Everyone's a Lawyer) was also cancelled and I gave this interview from my hotel in Arizona, where I decided to stay instead of flying back to Chicago.
At the show, I was able to get the crowd on my side and to loosen up and had a blast. I tricked them into laughing with me. What a great job I have. #standup #laughs #formerlawyer
