Joe Stanton: The Stand-Up Show

Last night I did stand-up for the first time. I thought it went pretty well: I used fortune cookies and I had a list of jokes with "THESE ARE MY JOKES" written on the back. This is a picture of me looking at a Martha Stewart holiday magazine* with her dressed as a "Glampire" on the cover. I didn't do a proper "joke" about it, I just wanted to show it to the audience. I spent seven bucks on that bit, and it actually worked out kind of well.

It was, firstly and foremost-ly, great fun, and I can't wait to do it again.

*A Halloween issue, thank god, and not Christmas.

Congrats, man. You should videotape it next time, so I can stop imagining your routine as a cross between Dennis Miller and Carrot Top.

Joe Stanton said...

No, that's what it was like.

But seriously, I will videotape it next time.

Nick Faber said...

Ah, you got the "but seriously" part down.

But seriously, Joe, congrats for getting up there and doing it. I really wish I had been there to see you. I know what kind of potential you have, so I'm sure it was a fun set.

I'm sorry I missed it, too! Dang. I'll catch your rockstar next month.
