A new hobby
About a month ago I started a new hobby. And it's not even remotely related to IT, although I use my computer to write the stuff I need for it.
So, what the hell am I talking about?
In December I found this comedy club here in Hong Kong, and went over to see a few shows. In January I attended the free comedy workshop, as I thought this might be fun to try, and since it's free (transportation aside) there's nothing to loose.
After the workshop I went to the Open Mic Nights, which is an opportunity for everyone to go up on stage and do a few minutes. The regulars of the club use it to test out new material, as on that evening there are not many people who are just there for visiting and those folks (are supposed to) know that this night isn't a regular show.
So I went there to try out the material I wrote, to see if it works.
So far I went three times, tomorrow will be the fourth time.
Last Friday I spontaneously decided to head to the club, to see the show. After I arrived I was surprised, as the clubs founder asked me if I wanted to do 5 minutes on stage.
I agreed, and so I had my first real show last Friday, after just three practice-sessions.
Apparently I did a good job. My set was just over 3 minutes, but people seemed to have fun. Thus I have now been welcomed into the team and will have my official debut this coming Saturday.
Man, what a ride.
So, if anybody comes over to Hong Kong and would like to laugh a bit, check out the TakeOut Comedy Club, where from now on I'll also be performing from time to time.
