Darren’s Song and a Dental Crowd

I’m at Bearly’s and I’m biting the bullet tonight, which means I’m up first. So sometimes that works ok, and sometimes not so much. For tonight I’m going to start calling this a Dental show, because it was like pulling teeth at some points. The audience laughs, but you’re working harder than normal to get…

Loco at the Local

Tonight is a first for two reasons; for one reason, this is a new venue for me, I’m performing at The Local which is a new open mic run by Chanel and Richie, and it will be nice to try some material out in a new place I haven’t performed at before. For the second…

Dartmouth Players and Broken G-Strings

So, after doing the Aubcon in the afternoon, I picked Alva back from her new Apartment where she and her Boyfriend are moving in, (what an awesome dude to let her go do a show when there’s moving and unpacking to be done) and we drove to Dartmouth to perform at the open mic for…

Like a Bridge Over Troubled Bridgewater…

Doing a show in Bridgewater for a playground fundraiser, and I’m headlining for a change. There’s a nice crowd here for the show, and they’re laughing pretty good so I’m looking forwards to taking the stage. There’s a problem for me though, because half way through my set it’s pretty obvious that I’m losing my…

…And We Are All Together

Gus’ Pub again, and its new material night again, but this time I’m prepared, unlike last time when I did some storytelling, which I sucked at, this time I did some new material. I did the three new bits I tried out at Yuk’s last weekend, then based on the fun time I had yesterday…
