I am sitting in my office/kitchen feeling like challenging myself arbitrarily for the hope of gaining little to nothing in the end. This is why I am going to watch 100 amateur stand-up comedy clips in just five days. That’s about 20 videos a day of what I can hope will be pure, untapped, hilarious talent, but will more likely turn out to be eye wateringly tiresome.
Next week, the stand-up videos of the day will be the best of what I have seen thus far, including a brief summary of the others. . . I will be scouring the usual sites like Youtube, Vimeo, Veoh, etc, but please – if you find something you think I should see, send it along!
To give you an idea of what I’m looking for (or wishing I wasn’t looking for), check out the clip below from PREACHA. I found this to be surprisingly funny, but not for the reasons intended.
