I started acting (very low key stuff) at a local theatre in 2015, but then moved on to stand up about a year ago. I'm still very new to stand up and so still messing around with my format and style.
I don't think gongs are for me because I prefer telling longer stories and the audience seem to prefer one liners.
Done 11 gong shows in Manchester (4 at Frog & 7 Comedy Store), trying something different each time, but I've never lasted 5 mins yet.
I think it's fair to say that I love Manchester more than Manchester loves me :(
