Chris Schipper is a stand-up comic who started out just about 107 days ago and has been documenting his career daily on Youtube since day one. After bailing out moments before his first time up on stage, Schipper finally made it up on April 29, 2009.

What is truly captivating about this series to me and anyone else who is interested in starting out in comedy, is that you get to share in the struggles that plague all comics at every level. Bad audiences, shitty open mics, heckling hookers, and so on. On day 64, Chris shared his experience performing at an open mic filled with an audience comprised mainly of other struggling comics.
