    This vid and routine is over a year old and I know it's not the greatest but I've been told I have potential, so I figured I'd post it. I havn't done stand up in a while and I'm suffering some major writers block. So I am hoping you guys can help me out and inspire me with some ideas for things I can write about for a new routine..

    tips/suggestions/criticism, all welcome

    yep
    I'm a nervous, anxiety-ridden person
    I have an idea to just smoke a lot of weed before performing to calm myself the fuck down, but I'm worried I'll forget my routine..might work though

    Maybe you should just take a hit or two. Just enough to take the edge off.

    good idea
    it may take a little more than that though

    You want to make sure you don't smoke too much. Just enough to get the smallest hint of a buzz.

    improvised stoney rambles might be funny though..
    haha probably not

    Plus you can add it to your act by letting them know that you just smoked to ease the edge.

    I like your sweater. You were definitely way nervous. I can be funny naturally in a conversation, but I can't tell jokes. I will ruin any good joke that has ever existed. I freak out when people are completely focused on me.

    I think a drink would be better than weed for anxiety. I'd take a shot of vodka, whiskey, whatever your poison of choice is, but that's just because weed makes me even more socially awkward. I didn't really laugh at the jokes, but I'm sure not being so nervous would help.

    loll thanks. You guys are silly. I was hoping for critiques on the material and new ideas for material :p

    I think I looked kinda frumpy that night, Haha. The sweater has bumble bees on it...since Marilyn Bee is my stage name, I had this idea to always wear yellow or something bumble bee related.

    I thought they were clouds, but bumblebees are cute too.

    ok, you added more now. lol, after I already replied to the sweater comment..
    Thank you for advice. I am not a drinker, I can probably count the number of times I've drank on my fingers (and toes), but having a drink beforehand would probably help me a lot.
    I'm naturally funny (and sarcastic) in conversation too. I suppose I can't tell jokes either. When I do stand up, I see it more like I'm telling funny stories..
    or more so, making fun of my life.

    ..I guess I'm more into subtle, dark humor.

    Yes, I couldn't do that either. I still have a mild panic attack when having to speak on our bi-weekly work meetings. I just don't like having an audience. I'm better one on one and even then, I'm more of a listener.

    I think it's fine to make fun of your life, because you can always be funnier when you're talking about something you know and what you see around you. The performance is still a very big part of it.

    I was trying to just say something nice, but I couldn't help myself. I wouldn't have described it as dark humor, it just seemed like the usual dating/relationship jokes, but I didn't listen all the way. I'm supposed to be working.

    I see it as challenging myself because I enjoy performing but I just have so much anxiety. Doing stand up is therapeutic for me. You're right, I guess the particular things I talk about in this routine aren't dark. I do like dark humor though and have written some. I guess this vid is more quirky, subtle humor. I guess I would also be good at dead pan too. I havn't completely decided on a style.

    I think it's good that you're trying to conquer your anxiety by facing it head on.
