It got better when you put the phone down and connected with the audience. Keep it up!

^ I agree with this - additionally, for doing the stand-up  and submitting it to Fark, you're many times braver than I have ever been. Bravo.

Yeah, connect with the audience and lose the AIDS bit.

Amen to that.  I thought it was a great first attempt, but the AIDS bit fell a little flat.  Also, it was tons better when you stopped looking at your phone for notes.  Definitely lose the phone for future bits.

I thought it was decent.

I think you could add some jokes playing off the fact that you're a welder (isn't that what you said?). Welders are farked up people, with all those chemicals flying around. If you live in an area of Canada where people work for a living, this might be a way to connect with the audience.

Also, you sound exactly like Seth Rogen. Maybe incorporate a Seth Rogen impression into the bit.

But I am not a comedian, nor am I funny. I do, however, wish you the best of luck..

Lose the phone.
And the hat.
Slow it down.
Other than that, not bad for your 1st time out.

For a first time out, you did great.

I only had my phone since the host had cue cards, but his bits had a lot of details so I thought I should have points to keep me on track.  All good info guys, more shows to come!!

I agree with many of the other poster children in this thread.
Nice work, kudos.

As to the notes, maybe a piece of paper or card on the floor with just a few key words to remind you of bits?

I applaud your guts to get up there and do it.  Of course it needs work but your sets will improve with experience.  One day you will be able to look back at this video and cringe.

I would never cringe at this, I didn't do Mr. T jokes in the 80s and look back :)  As long as my humor is really awful I'm happy!
