Top Ten Signs You Shouldn't Try Stand-Up Comedy
(submitted by jonestown punchdrinker)
After hours of planning careful consideration, you still only place 9th on some stupid internet top ten list.
You're under the misguided impression that stand-up comedy is about making people laugh, rather than making cynical social commentary.
(Krig the Viking)
You can't resist heckling yourself.
You're still telling John Kerry jokes.
The last joke you made involved chickens, a road, and a priest walking into a bar.
You got all your jokes from Tom Brokaw.
You have absolutely no opinion at all about airplane peanuts, New York cab drivers, or socks in the dryer.
Your resume has "writer for tv series Full House" as the highlight.
Your closer is a side splitting pun involving the inner workings of a thermo-nuclear reactor.
The minute you get on stage the crowd starts chanting "Carrot Top!", "Carrot Top!"
