Tonight is the Shaw cable audition. I'm very excited. I also have a spot on KATHLEEN MCGEE's Kokanee Comedy Battle this Thursday, January 11. These are great shows because Kathleen goes out of her way to get a variety of acts on the show. Also, the audience gets a pretty strong role in the show, because they vote on the winner, who gets money.
(if you're a funny person and are living or visiting Edmonton and want to participate in the Kokanee Comedy Battle, here's the myspace URL: http://www.myspace.com/kokaneecomedybattle . Your contact name is Kathleen.)
I'm also excited about the upcoming feature with Dawn. It's scheduled to premiere either this Saturday or the Saturday after and run every couple weeks until Valentine's Day. I'm excited about it, and I hope people check it out.
Monday was a really gratifying night as RYAN and AMBER-LYNN collectively known as MAYHEM were offering us a look at their new TV show GUINEA PIG, which will be airing on the Discovery Channel. It always feels good to see people's hard work pay off, especially when it's folks you know. Afterwards, I snuck down to the Sidetrack to do some work of my own polishing some new jokes. It's always interesting to see which jokes resonate with an audience and which ones don't. It's like the audience determines your act, because ultimately they decide what's funny and what stays in your set.
