Hey Ereybody!

Sorry I havent updated in a VERY long time, I spend more time on Myspace these days trying to whore myself to the masses, and it's a great marketing tool, but I realize I neglect all of you who check this page. I have some shows coming up, check my myspace page for updates, the link is in my sidebar. and here's the ad for one of my more important shows!

Breaking through a plateau

Had a couple gigs last night. On my way to the Upper Deck Sports Bar and Grille, in beautiful Barre, Massachusettes, we stopped off at 3G's Sports Bar in Worcester, for Andy Paquette's open mic. Andy was gracious enough to give me a few minutes on stage, even after I interrupted his hosting with a cell phone call. Got a few laughs there, though it was hard to tell from the stage who was laughing and who wasn't. Left there and headed for my next gig, put on by the wonderfully bubbly Anne Diaz. It was upstairs in a bar at a snow park, which was a really nice venue. My friend Dave Kanell went on first, and had a great set, the best I have seen him have since we have been doing shows together, he's really progressing very well. I got up next and in my own estimation, as well as a few audience members who sought me out after the show, absolutely destroyed. Once again, no notes, I ad libbed, messed with the crowd a bit, even threw out a new joke I used for the first time earlier in the night at the 3G's open mic. Anne went up next and had a great set, no surprise there, followed soon after by Sparky. This guy, is a certifiable nut! He does a great mix of improv, stand up, and music, with a ton of crowd work, and he got a ton of laughs as well. Had a few drinks and talked with some people after the set and headed home. I feel like I'm breaking through a plateau lately with my comedy. Getting up once a month was doing nothing for me, and now that I am able to go up at least once a week, I am improving by leaps and bounds.

Last Nights Main Pub Show

So, I did the Main Pub show last night. It was a good night overall, I think it was my best show yet. Did not need to use my notes, riffed off the top of my head, which is becoming increasingly easier as I do more sets. Worked in a few fairly new jokes, and had a good time. I feel like I have crossed a threshold in my act, and it can only go up from here. Got consistent laughs, and even an applause break. A fantastic night overall, and I owe my confidence to my good friend Oxycalm :) Check out my upcoming shows on

Couple updates

Hit the Victory Lane Sports Bar OpenMic night on wednesday, did a decent 5 mintue set. Not a huge crowd, but a developing scene nonetheless. Last night I drove up to Worcester Mass. for a set at my good friend Andy Paquette's open mic, at 3G's Sports Bar. A decent crowd there also, got to meet some cool comics, and Andy bought the beers, so you know I wasn't complaining. Next show is this upcoming thursday at The Main Pub in Manchester. Be there, or be...not there.

So, for the last few weeks, I have been testing out a new product, made by a company called Anabolic Fitness. It's made with a low dose of synthetic oxytocin, a hormone originally used to aid women in lactation. New research, however, has shown it has great effects as a mood enhancer, or a "social lubricant". Allowing people to be freer with their inhibitions, relieve stress, even help with the effects of nicotine withdrawl, experienced by those quitting smoking. It's a completely legal, OTC supplement, in an aerosol container. 3 sprays per side, 3 times per day is all you need. Doesn't give you the loopy or groggy feelings like prescription drugs do, but it has greatly increased my focus, made me MUCH more patient, especially with my children, and last night I had two of my best sets ever on stage. It's really an amazing product. Visit for in depth info. Most of you who know me know how I am with my nutritional supplements, I don't screw around with stuff like this, it has to be the real deal for me to push it, and I am adamant about keeping people away from crap products. If anyone is interested in ordering any, it's 25.00 a bottle, shipping included, you can get it through me, or the website with all the info on it. If you buy it from me, I'll hand deliver it to you. Also, please, check my myspace page for upcoming shows, I was invited to perform every wednesday night at a new venue in Dayville, just north of me. I'm going to check it out one of these weeks. And when you are on please be sure to click on Jesse G's profile, and show the man some love, of the non sexual variety.

What a long, strange trip...

So I'm back from NYC, and my Last Comic Standing audition. I Got up at 2:15 AM, got dressed, and hopped in the car. After a quick detour for gas, I headed to New Haven to meet Dave Kanell, and hop a train to the city. We got our tickets, and on the train with no incident. Got to the city, and walked the 1.16 miles to Caroline's Comedy Club. The line was the length of the front of the building, and wrapped about halfway around the side when we arrived about 6:30 AM. We quickly secured our spot in line, and thankfully, met some VERY cool people. Craig Loydgren, and Anne Diaz, as well as a man named Gary, whose last name I did not get, but I certainly will not forget him. For the next few hours, we kept each other company, hanging out, bullshitting, cracking on each other and random other people around. At one point, Rich Vos, one of my favorite comics, walked past with a camera crew, and his wife, Bonnie Macfarlane. He got closer to us, and I stopped him, and he talked to me for a few seconds on camera. We continued to BS after that for a while, braving the cold aided by Craig's timely and humanly purchase of Coffee for us (THANK GOD FOR YOU, CRAIG!). As we rounded the corner of the building about 10:45 or so, things started to get a little brighter for us as we eagerly awaited the chance to get in front of the panel. We met, along the way, a fantastic Latino man who's only name I got was Ron, and he joined our group. Anthony Clark, from TV's "Yes, Dear", and host of this yaers LCS, came around and was interviewing random people in line. He walked past our group, and I turned away. When Dave pointed me back towards his direction, I realized he wanted to talk to me. We shook hands, and he asked me a few crazy questions, to which I of course had a goofy answer. He then shook my hand and told me he hoped to see me inside. I thanked him, and was handed a sheet of paper by a production assistant, who told me "fill this out and get it back to me, and we'll put you on TV" HOLY SHIT, I'm gonna be on TV! That excitement kept me going despite the anxiety I had over auditions. About 1:25 or so, a NYPD officer informed the 20 people in front of us, and everyone else behind them, that the line was cut off, and no one behind that point would be seen, but that NBC would be posting where to send an audition tape in. While horribly disappointed from being up since 2:15 AM, I was happy that I gave it a shot, and at least I would be on TV, even if it isn't living in the house and tormenting 11 other comics. I'll be sending my tape in ASAP, as I am an attention whore, and even though I am disillusioned with the whole thing, I still need to take that chance... see my MYSPACE page for new shows added as a result of this LCS experience.
