I have started doing stand up comedy as a hobby and here’s one of my videos.
Sorry for the sound as the noise from the bar upstairs leaks down.
Any praise is obviously welcome and good criticism too.
If it matters I did this set without a drink. That’s the thing that makes stand up not as difficult as regular public speaking; you can have booze without being stigmatized.
Excellent! Only note of advice I would give is that as you begin moving around a bit 2/3 of the way through, it improves. Use your movement - it’s a bit lacking in the beginning. I think that’s what captures people’s attention, the moving target. Pacing - not sure that’s the right word for the slight foot movement and directional changes I’m thinking of, but I know good comedians are in near-constant movement - along with the hand gestures.
