Diary of a Stand-Up Comedian

Steven Scaffardi, stand-up comedy, comedy, funny, comedian, open mic comedy, London open mic comedy, author of The Drought

During my 12-months on the London open mic stand-up comedy scene, I experienced many different scenarios. Sometimes very funny, sometimes very strange, but always quite entertaining! The Diary of a Stand-Up Comedian is my log of that time spent on the stand-up comedy circuit.

Below is a complete list of all 54 gigs I have performed (to date) with links to those associated blog posts. You can also check out my Top 10 Favourite Open Mic Comedy blog posts, or view all of the posts by clicking here.

For all you budding comics out there, I hope you find this diary funny, useful, and enjoyable. You might also want to check out these open mic comedy links with details of where and how you can gig in and around London. Please note - these are details I picked up when I was performing on the open mic comedy scene in 2011 so they might have changed since then!

That's it from me! Please feel free to share you own stories right here on my blog and send me your stories about the wonderful world of open mic comedy!
