So … drum roll please … I, for the first time, got paid for doing stand-up. I’ve been in a “real” comedy show for several months now, but hadn’t gotten paid. So on Thursday night I got back paid, and I got paid for that night.

We get a percentage of the profits. The issue is that almost everyone who comes gets comped. So how much was my pay? Well, I could buy any extra value meal on the McDonald’s menu. And then … I wouldn’t have enough money to buy you an extra value meal. Yup, I’m rich.
