I handled a heckler at the Log Cabin Bar and Grill last night

Last night I did a set at the Log Cabin Bar & Grill. The wait staff was very nice and the audience came warmed up and ready to go. I have to say that I had my reservations about what to expect, but I had a great time. Nate Jackson runs a great room there.

Half way through my set, some drunk dude in a sideways hat called me a dick. I reminded him that although it seems like it, we are not having an actual conversation and in fact, I am in the middle of a set for a live comedy show. I wont the audience back quickly and finished up my set felling really great about it. One thing I refuse to let happen, is feeling any kind of autonomy or complacency about my comedy. If I'm ever on stage and feel like I'm just on auto-pilot or notice that the audience is not engaged, I promise myself to take extreme measures to make sure that crowd leaves either laughing, being mad, or feeling betrayed.

They'll remember my set whether they want to or not.
