When I first started doing stand-up comedy I desperately wanted to be a sharp-tongued as well as acerbic observational comic.
Someone everyone knew was funny, however also had something important to say.
That never really played out for me, as well as over the last few weeks I have become a pothead comic. I mean that in a couple of ways, because our on-period persona is that of a mumble-mouthed pothead, plus at that point most of our audience are stoned. For the record, I never get high before a show, to be honest… although afterward I will smoke a little cannabis to unwind. I had to change our act a while ago because I started getting more bookings for cannabis dispensaries as well as dirty smokers lounges as well as I wanted to connect with that audience. It turns out that I am sincerely much funnier as a cannabis comic after that I was with our old act. What people don’t generally understand about performing is that all those classic potheads you see in movies aren’t certainly smoking cannabis. Not only is it illegal to use cannabis on movie sets as well as studios, however it also interferes with multiple actors being able to remember their own lines. In other words, the most famous potheads in the world are just great actors who are pretending to use cannabis on camera. I am not nearly as fun when I do comedy after smoking any amount of marijuana, because it impacts our sense of timing. I am a more convincing pothead, I think, when I have no cannabis in our system, isn’t that insane? That is why even when I perform arNSUP in a cannabis dispensary I never get high before a show.
