Today’s #maydays prompt time for a bit of humour.
His first night of stand-up
Should have been his first night of sit down
Not one joke reached his audience
Not a titter did he earn
The deathly silence was too much.
He tried harder with every joke
And that was his problem,
Trying hard was not the solution
Jokes are best told in control
The best joke on the night was him
And when asked by a loudmouth
Did he know the road to Sydney?
He replied in desperation YES!
The voice called back
Best take it pal!

I feel bad for this guy. It’s difficult doing anything infront of a large crowd for many people. And the guy in the audience was being mean. Nice write Michael.
Its a sad reality too Mandi….hope your Sunday is going fine for you. Its Monday morning here the start of a new day…
He may not have been funny, but he was brave. No way would I stand up in front of a crowd like that–even if I didn’t have to tell jokes.
Its a big ask isn’t for anyone.
