    Nice I was thinking of trying this out so I could get a feel for my own stuff vocally. Maybe get some constructive criticism.

    I was kind of hoping for the same thing with this, but yours is the first comment.

    This is a shorter little skit which perhaps is a little better. But until you try (and tape yourself) you really have no idea how you sound...

    Any and all feedback would be appreciated...

    I would just suggest enunciation in just a few areas. Maybe it's just the camera's microphone or the setting.

    I like it though.

    Yeah, that's a great point. It's actually a remote control and not a mic. But I still have to work on not being nervous - talking slower - and pronouncing my words clearly.

    But again, practice makes perfect with these things. Either way, it's a fun thing to try in the privacy of your own home with friends.

    At this point, I couldn't imagine getting up in front of actual strangers and trying this. I laugh too much at my own jokes...

    I think you should go for it, I might be going out to some open mics here soon myself.

    As for comedians laughing at their own jokes? I think it makes it that much easier to laugh with them, honestly.

    Youtube Kyle Cease - Sad God. he can barely control his own laughter and i think that makes it so much funnier. I saw him live and he laughs with the crowd.
