I’ve been doing comedy now for a few years. I use the term pretty loosely however. I still have a long way to go to even be considered amateur. I’m still sub-amateur. So, I know a thing or two about bombing. In fact, it’s what I’m most successful at. When I don’t bomb, I scratch my head and ask, “What did I do right??”.
Given that, it’s nice to see that even the biggest comics on the continent have it rough from time to time. Here is a segment from “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” called “Worst I Ever Bombed” featuring one of my favourite comics, Mike Birbiglia. I’m pleased to say that thus far I have not had a similar experience. I suddenly feel like a winner!
