So I went to an Open Mic last night to test out some of my new material and learnt some valuable lessons.
I did get laughs but have realised that a “muso” crowd is not the right one for my act.
Also realised that St Patricks day is a poor choice of date – everyone is out to get slaughtered and not really interested in stage performances unless its a lively, raucous “sing-a-long”.
Satire isn’t going to cut it.
I’m not devestated though and will continue – much more rehearsal and better choice of venue next time.
