First Time at a Comedy Club

Last night, John and I went to see Whitney Cummings at Helium Comedy Club. This was my first comedy show to ever go to, and to be honest, I was kind of nervous. I didn't want to be "called out" by any of the comedians. Center of attention doesn't look good on me, mainly because my cheeks will look like Santa's. From watching tv shows and movies, I knew I didn't want to sit in the front and I shouldn't get up to go to the bathroom because that's who they prey on. It really wasn't bad at all for those particular people, but I was happy to stay out of dodge:)

I thought the shows were really good. Notice, I said shows. There is an opening act to the main act at a comedy club. Whitney's opening act was Alexis Guerreros, and I thought he was really good. I wasn't sure how I would like the opening act because we don't "know" the person, but he turned out to be great. The opening act helps get the crowd's laughing box tickled and ready for the main act. That was something I didn't know. I also didn't know that each person had to purchase at least two items from the menu which can get kind of pricey.

I love how you forget that the person you are watching is actually a celebrity and how it feels almost like a conversation with that person. I like the personal feel of it and how they feed off of the audience. The crowd was a little on the quieter side (according to the comedians), so I feel like it was difficult for the comedians to get going.

I would say my overall experience was good, not great. I would love to go to another show with maybe a bigger audience to see if that helps any. Both comedians were really good, and I laughed the entire time. I just wanted to belly laugh at something, and it didn't happen for me.
