I like this, Geoff. smiley - ok

I imagine it must be inspired from personal experience. I admire anyone who can go out in front of a bunch of people who want you to be funny and actually *be* funny. Nuff said, I think. smiley - biggrin

Incidentally, I love the euphemism 'severely scatalogical'! smiley - laugh

Tip: before trying to earn a living with comedy, you can check whether you hit the taste of the masses by performing in a shopping zone or the parking lot of a supermarket. If people start throwing smiley - tomato then you know you'll have to work at it.

Spiff's correct. I do have experience in this area....

A shopping precinct? It's bad enough trying to make people laugh when they've paid for the privilege, without trying to divert them from other activities first.

Thanks for the nice words, people smiley - cheers

Got to lend my support to this worthy entry, and I can also vouch for Geoff's comic talents having seen him do 3 gigs. He is qualified to advise as each time I saw him perform he got better and better.

Geoff, I don't know how you do it. I can't see anything wrong with the article as is. It's very insightful, easy to read and it merits a fast entry into the edited guide IMHO.

Well done. smiley - cheers
