Thursday thru Sunday in the intimate venue of Rooster T. Feathers. This is one of my favorite clubs to play, and I’m loving comedy right now like never before. When a comedian says he is enjoying comedy that means that he’s impressed with his/her own originality. Silicon Valley has always been good to me, but this time it’s different because I’m the HEADLINER. Thursday night is already SOLD OUT. Check www.roostertfeathers.com for specific details. 408.736.0921~~157 W. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale, CA 94087
But just in the beginning of the set. I use to enjoy that brief moment, and since right now I’m capable of anything its time for the implementation.
THIS CLOWN’S MINI VAN HAD HANDICAPPED PLATES. HMMM…..
This weekend at my house.
When I perform in the town where I live, I get none of the feeling of the real live road. No privacy, no getting in the zone, no sleeping in, no text fighting because I’m out of town. I have to live a full day of regular life and then go drop an hour on the stage. I think the “in town” me and “I’m here chilling at the hotel all day” me are two completely different performers. For local performances, you’re gonna see a stressed angrier version, who has little patience or tolerance, with a smile. You’re not gonna notice. Funny is guaranteed by the way.
I’m in the part of Michigan that no one really speaks about. I was here once before, but only one day performing at some college. I don’t remember the name and it doesn’t even matter. What does matter? Rhetorical. Nothing. I just need to be on stage and change someone’s life. Simple. It’s tough sometimes being the funniest person in the world, but you’re put in places for special reasons, and that’s why I’ve been in placed here in Grand Rapids this weekend. I’m one of the few superheros whose identity is not secret, but I have a job to do, and it’s gonna get done, ONE PERFORMANCE AT A TIME.
Listen to an interview on there. Yes, with me.
You on twitter? Not anymore. Facebook? Nope. Well, how are people gonna look you up. I don’t know, but if they want me, they’ll find me. I’m a comedian, not the FBI. I believe those tools are incredibly useful, however they don’t work for my situation. That’s not to say that I will never join the world of one touch connection with fans and society. Just for this minute, I’m gonna lay off and remain focused with my tasks at hand. As much as I talk in interviews and performances on stage, no one will really know my life. Maybe when I decide to write my book, there will be some insight into the life and times of Mike E Winfield. I already feel successful, and anymore popularity that I receive is in the hands of those who choose to share my videos, tell a friend, or post when I’ll be airing on some program.

I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix. I’m serious. This service is still new to me. I’m catching up on a bunch of great movies that I’ve never heard of. I’m trying to learn the mechanics of why amazing movies are not popular and it seems to have to a lot to do with distribution. I really don’t know. The best movie that I’ve seen recently was called LAST NIGHT. It dealt with some of my favorite topics like infidelity, lies, and sex. My wife and I finally have something that we can use to spend quality time together. I’ve also caught up with some sitcoms because you can watch a full season. The Office is on there and that show is hilarious. Overall, I definitely recommend it.
Punchline Comedy Club in Sacramento, CA is one the places where I first hit the stage, and now I get the headline. It feels like that is what I’m supposed to do. This is all part of the process, and headlining a full weekend in the town where you began is in line on the path. The town is fully supportive, they go all out when it comes to having my back. Much love. I was carded the other night in some bar during a comedy show, and that was the joke of the night b/c I guess I’m supposed to be some local superhero. As far as Thanksgiving weekend, I’m working with one of buddies that I started comedy with. Key Lewis. Very funny dude with similar issues. One major issue that I can’t relate to is that he’s half black and half white and he looks Mexican. What a terrible problem to have, I’m just glad to have large protruding teeth. There’s six shows.
I never realized how many of my favorite actors are in horrible films. I’m making no excuse for what I plan to do down the line as far as accepting roles, but it’s nice to have standup to fall back on. People clearly accept stuff out of desperation. Thats true in life on many occasions. For instance, working at a place you don’t want to work because you have to pay some bills. Forget that!! I think that’s what many of us are brought up to believe is that “we have to do what we have to do.” I don’t necessarily believe in that. I think you seek what you are supposed to do and the rest falls into place. I’m gonna stop there. Thats my Mike E. Luther King moment of the day.
