In the late 1980s/early 1990s, I participated in a workshop comedy group called The Stand-Up Comedy Experience, under the direction of the inestimable Steve Rosenfield. That workshop has grown and morphed and is now the American Comedy Institute. It was a hobby, that I briefly toyed with turning into something more, but, my creative talents lend themselves more to comedy writing, and to cooking, than to performing. Still, I had a hell of a lot of fun.
If I had to pick a favorite performance of mine, this would probably be it. There was just a very different, electric energy at being at a big name comedy club, with a seasoned, professional emcee running the show, versus the smaller venues we usually performed at.
