Nope No Joke.



A few years back I was at a taping of King Of Queens with a buddy of mine. I got to talking to the warm up comedian and he let me go up in front of the audience and do a little schtick. Well I guess I did OK since the whole place was laughing along with some of the cast members who were watching behind me. After I was done the warm up guys asked if I had ever done stand up before? After i told I Had never done this he said i should "LOOK INTO IT" . Well now I have.

Very Cool, but in show biz, we say "Break a Leg!"
So, break a leg Mark.

Hey, you're not one of those "What's the deal with homework?" kind of guys are you? Posted Image
I'm looking forward to the MP3 of the show that you will undoubtedly be posting.

Mark, if it ever happens that someone invites you to the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, DON'T PASS IT UP!!! A lot of careers were started there.

Good luck!

The Kind Of Comedy I do is based on my Uncanny ability of impersonation. What I do is take a Character who we all Know and put them into a situation that is common to us but yet you can see that person doing it. I Just dont come out and do a scene with brando I put them into something else.


For example one bit that I am working on (this is not part of my skit as of yet) is what if Forrest Gump was the Voice of Movie Phone.

"Hello Thank you for calling, Calling Movie Phone"


"If you Know what movie you would like to see push enter the first 3 letters.

BEEP BEEP BOOP

"OH Thats a Good Movie, Momma said that was a good movie. Jennie also like that Movie. etc etc etc.


OBTW IM gonna be there on Aug. 11th
