Best Public Humiliation - 2004
The open mike at West End Comedy Theater
Fancy yourself a comedian, eh? Well, put together a two-minute routine and try to woo the audience at the West End Comedy Theater's open mike every Wednesday at 8 p.m. The forum is open to singer/songwriters and performance artists as well, but we find the real test of humiliating the self comes with an amateur round of comedy. Not to worry--we doubt there's any produce thrown, but give it a shot and judge from your mates' reactions as you bound offstage to see if you were right when you said, "Dude, I could totally work this crowd." If right, you were a shining star. If you were wrong, at least you can add one of the most terrifying and exhilarating experiences to your entertainment résumé.
