IamA Stand Up Comedian. Today is my four year anniversary of doing comedy. My name is Tim Ross. AMA!
Hey guys. I've been doing stand up for four years now and I thought it would be interesting to give people some perspective for what life is like for a comic who isn't a national headliner. I host and feature for headlining comics and obviously I don't make a ton of money. It's taken me a lot of fun places though. I've been to Michigan, Indiana, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, North Dakota and a slew of other places with my comedy. I got to perform on the same stage as Kyle Kinane at a festival in Florida. I've gotten to open for Harland Williams and Artie Lange and Big Jay Oakerson and a few other noteable guys.
I love the people on that sub. Some really funny comics and really supportive users. Great sub.
If you are on reddit every day you might recognize me in this video from 2013 that hit the front page of videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsCRv_8Qvu4
I was also on Steve Hofstetter's show Laughs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88sHjNITI0U
And I have some other stuff at www.youtube.com/timrosscomedy
At any rate, that's what it is. I'm an unknown comic who performs at a non-headlining level. I do a lot of shows in VFW's and VFD's and bars and punk venues and lots of weird places. I sometimes tour with a group of guys who set up DIY shows at www.facebook.com/racetothecoffin
So go ahead. Ask some questions about doing comedy as a mostly broke depressed fat guy with anxiety!
