It's true that the life of stand up comics is less than glamorous. It's also true the you have to make due and regardless of the pre-show circumstances, the audience deserves a great show and if you're a pro, they'll get one and will never know what happens behind-the-scenes.

That's why we've been doing podcast episodes before our recent comedy shows. As much as you don't want to know when the comic gets on stage, after a great show, it's kinda fun to look behind the curtain and get a laugh from what was going on minutes before we take the stage.

This latest episode of #SpeakingComedy does just that. Me, Jessica Gibson, Jay Black and Scott Friedman prepping for the show after we had the wrong time and arrived two hours early.
