It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to become a comic, and it requires a lot of stamina to perform every night. But at least it’s a job that each of our performers loves. What’s really difficult is to go to the jobs that aren’t fun (and where you don’t get applause at the end). So in honor of those gigs, tonight we’re asking:
Q: What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Telemarketing– it lasted about 2 days.
Burger King, but it wasn’t that bad.
Stand-up Comedy– no joke!
A busboy in Los Angeles (at a Rain Man age time in life that is way past the appropriate age for busboys).
It’s a tie between the airplane parts factory and the marketing for a basement waterproofing company.
It would be the Car Wash except for the year he spent teaching kids with emotional problems in a wealthy Philadelphia suburb.
Tech department for EDS on Wall St: the longest year of his life.
Pouring beers at a ski lodge before he’d ever had one and subsequently getting a lot of complaints because of the excessive foam.
Thanks for stopping by Eighty-Second & 2nd. Come back next week when we ask another Question of the Night. Or better yet, come in to the Club and see these acts live on stage.
