Writing Wot I Done

New Song, Old Jitters

By Carey Lee | Aug 21, 2019

Nothing makes me more nervous than when I’m debuting a new bit on stage, especially when I’m not sure how it’s going to be perceived by the crowd. These days when you write material, I think mainly for myself as I can’t speak for other comics, I want to make sure I’m not saying something…

We’ve Got a Barn…Let’s Put on a Show!!

By Carey Lee | Jul 27, 2019

Where were you born? In a barn? No, can’t say that I was, but I can say I’ve done a show in one! Tonight I’m in Upper Kennetcook at a campground called Shenanigans where I’m performing with Andrew Evans and Ian Black. The trip there was uneventful and we found the campground with no idea…

No Power, No Guitar, No Plan

By Carey Lee | Jul 21, 2019

Tonight after the two days of Bainfest I’m performing in a club at Sniggly Wiggly’s, my plan was to bring my guitar and try out the new material I wrote that I tried out in Yuk’s the week before, but after I got home today I unpacked my car, put everything away and had a…

Bainfest Day 2

By Carey Lee | Jul 20, 2019

It’s Bainfest and it’s day 2. I get my schedule for the day and unlike last night I’m much earlier in the show than Friday, last night I was between the Penultimate act, Christine Campbell and the Final Act the Mellotones (who I might add were equally amazing and started their set with “Soul Finger”…

Mondegreen Means Go

By Carey Lee | Jul 10, 2019

Back at the Pro/Am for Yuk’s in Halifax, and tonight I want to try out the new material that I had ready for the last time I was here and see if it works or not. If you hadn’t read my entry for the last time I was here I had changed my song lineup…

That’s a Big Axe

By Carey Lee | Jun 28, 2019

Off to Nackawic, NB to perform at the Big Axe Brewery with Jason Allen and it was an epic journey to get there and another epic journey to get home, which doesn’t detract from the show but it does add a dimension to the story; I left Halifax around 10am because this was going to…

Half of What I Wanted to Do

By Carey Lee | Jun 19, 2019

Doing the Yuk’s Pro-Am night and I have some new material to try out, but the best laid plans of comics can be changed at the last minute. Before I go onstage I’m sitting watching the audience and trying to gauge if the audience is laughing enough or not, so I’m deciding my material before…

Halifax Day 3 of 3; Killing with Kindness

By Carey Lee | Jun 8, 2019

The last night of the three at Yuk’s and there’s another large crowd and another reason to have a good time tonight. The best part about tonight is with a large enough crowd I get to have fun riffing and unlike the last two nights there’s material and people have given me reasons to talk…
