To Toastmasters or Not to Toastmasters…

I would like to speak to an audience. It’s fun, entertaining, and a way to work on new material. At this point I’m trying to get to 2 open Mic’s a week for practice. But it’s an audience of people heavily focused on their material. You could be buck naked and juggling flaming bottles of scotch and half of them wouldn’t look up to see if you set your pecker on fire.

Toastmasters is a guaranteed, focused, audience. But they tend to be about giving speeches on topics. I wonder how they will feel about 5-minute stand up routine stories…

Speaking of which…

A redditor told me I wasn’t funny and that I would fail if I tried to mix stories with jokes, so I guess I have to quit now.
