It's because when I first started doing stand-up about 4 years ago, I was faced with a decision after I started drinking Whiskey Every Day and In Great Volume.
I had a choice to become Funny. Or Die.
I chose Funny.
I stand by that decision. Always will.
This is a great website and If I actually had a computer or laptop to call my own (I will within the next month) I would comment constently on all of the good content here.
In the meantime, however, Check out Comedic Comrade Rob Lathan's Blog. That guy is funnier than I am.
