So Jack Ford Steals…

You might be thinking, who is Jack Ford? I know I was. He’s an open mic-er. An open mic-er that heard my Sarah Palin joke two weeks ago at an open mic, and then had the balls to do the joke right in front of me at the same club two weeks later. Aslan from WAYTOOHIP.COM has a little video of the intervention, but you’ll have to read the body language as I don’t think the mic picked up the conversation. I think I handled it fairly well. I hadn’t gone on yet and I didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize the performing since I’d already laid out $5 bucks to get in.

This (as far as I know) is only the second time that I’ve caught someone stealing. It’s always an open mic-er looking for an easy laugh, not realizing that their limited creativity is best destined for water cooler comedy. Honestly, if you’re just starting out and you can’t think of your own jokes, just stop. It’s not like you’ve already got an hour, and your audience is pressing you for new material. You have nothing, most of your friends have never seen your act. Just do you, or quit, because honestly Comedy doesn’t need any freshblood at this point, and it certainly doesn’t need any more thieves.
