  1. I would be interested in setting up a meeting and really getting a 1-1 session to inquire the services and events that the comedy club offers

    • Hi! I don’t work for any comedy club, I’m just a retired comedian who likes to help the scene. If you’re in Charlotte, NC I’d recommend reaching out to the Charlotte Comedy Zone and seeing what they have in store. Thanks!

You probably are, but the spotlight, man, it erases your brain. Kill it on that first joke – say it so often you can say it in your sleep – then your nerves will calm down.
