Strange Job

Isn’t it weird,
that no matter how much of a professional comic you  are,
or how long you’ve been working in the industry,
or how genuinely fantastic your jokes are,

some kid who’s been on stage three times can perform with jokes off the Internet and kill harder than you,
then subsequently quit after the 5th time  because ‘those 5 people in that bar didn’t laugh’?

Stand-up comedy sure is a strange job.
