If you're going to do stand up comedy at least do it justice.
Work on your craft. Watch stand up with a new eye towards discovery and learning. Get involved with your immediate 'scene' support it and network. Create some opportunities for yourself and others.
Work on your craft. Keep the back biting and jealousy to a minimum by not getting involved with all the little petty battles. They will waste your time, make unnecessary enemies, drain your creative energy ...and that's winning them!
