... 2 years back. With your shitty emo name and your white boy awkwardness. Fuck you.
'Russel Bland' was a cracker though. Go with god, friend.
too busy losing readers on the main site

have you heard of satire?
Now i'm no scientist when it comes to 'ratio' but
tweet me and i can share analytics.
5-10% engagement rate
industry standard: 0.07%
made up a bunch of bullshit i was off my meds.
i've been off a clinical dose for 4 years, but bobby didn't like me making a joke about @elevenish
I only went on social media as I've been living with an alcoholic for 6 months who worked in the industry (my gfs flatmate, she's fine)
Also 400 new acts were kicked out of edinburgh and josie and herring didn't bother with a press release.
those pricks sit on their laptops all day and claim to be left wing.
herring told me how great i was when i won new comedian and then never spoke to me again.
just cos i never paid for headshots while every other prick popped to the photographers every 4 weeks.
and then read a few more
watch my boring stand up clip below if you choose
here's an old review http://www.harringayonline.com/forum/topics/a-night-at-boom-tish-comedy-night
just an unbalanced choice
like hagen and mair do
eg. it's very easy for stewart lee to google himself but it's very hard for him to engage with me on my own terms
i turned it down
they also removed the best set i ever did from facebook videos cos i mentioned their name in a flattering way and they called the lawyers
so i lost my one good set
cos it takes the average act 10 years to get paid there
and then you get three hundred quid every six months
the tickets are 20 quid and there's 200 audience members and two shows a night.
thirteen white men on their agency roster
i am bored on stage, look at my bored face
and i wont
The Mad Jew?
about a 70s detective
it is a long joke
i will not share
of no artistic value
That I don't really understand the Internet any more. I think I'm fine with it though.
now that he's back in london, let's all go see him
Reads very very oddly. Not saying that you are at all, just this thread. Kinda like you're defending/explaining to yourself to a bunch of people who have nothing against you whatsoever. (exactly like that.) x
Liked it a lot. * You're just really bad at the internet. (probably not a good idea to shitstir on Twitter, with that in mind)
*I like all comedy pretty much.
Are fake/inexplicable. Like they are multiplied by ten each time.
Also they seem to count deleted tweets/give you false accounts of how many tweets one wrote per month. Just my opinion though.
Says I posted 20 tweets when I posted 11. Etc. (are they counting RTs and deleted tweets?)
Like how Youtube counts literal page-views/loads and not video views as its totals.
Bearing in mind I -do- think you're funny in person, you are SO BAD AT THE INTERNET. A parody account would imply there is some sort of running joke, which there is not, as you are unfortunately not bad at the internet in a funny way.
My advice: Record funny Youtube videos and stop posting on Twitter. Stat.
Was diagnosed as hypomanic in 2008. Lived with an alcoholic this year. Shrink had heart attack, denied right anxiety medication. Ambulance sent on Sunday, back with my parents for a week, might split up with gf, might not.
I am not bad at the internet. I had 100,000 twitter views in a day with 800 followers. I got Alastair Campbell and Piers Morgan to retweet me. I don't care about being funny, because you have to read what I post in a certain tone. The internet is a vague and positive place. I am negative and specific.
I genuinely love this forum
I was wondering if we were trapped in some kind of unfolding manic episode. Get well, be good to your parents, keep doing your art, even though I have to say I don't quite get it.
for calling him a misogynist.
This is fun.
but i enjoyed your standup for what it's worth.
Just want to give unequivocal confirmation that "thetrees" is not me.
