    They brought it back? I went by a few years ago and they told me they didn't do it anymore.

    Uh, hate to break it to you, L Wood, but there doesn't seem to be anyone in the audience. Those stage lights must be bright.

    ;)

    I always enjoy going to comedy clubs, but don't do it enough. Don't know why.

    I do have some friends that would love going, I might be tempted to go on stage also.

    Props for giving it a try. That's got to be scary.

    Most people sit in the back tables of the bottom section... That pic was taken from my wife sitting at the front tables... It really is a nice crowd and they are pretty lively..

    LOL.. I was nervous as hell when it got closer to my time... Then when I grabbed the mic , I forgot how nervous I was.... I got nervous toward the end of my set... Told a good joke and left it at that... I had about 2 minutes left of content...lol

    It's a dive on Montrose. The open mic is put together by some people called "The Secret Group". Seems like every Tuesday at 9pm

    I wanted to make it Tuesday but it was St. Patties day. I actually went last night with a friend and they had some CMT standup showcase. A few of the people were really funny. There were only about 20-30 people in the crowd but it was still a good time.
