2012 in review and thank you’s

Just some numbers I’m proud of…thank you for all of your visits and I hope to keep it going strong for another year…

I especially want to thank Eric Yoder, Steve Sabo, Rob Little, Dave Nelson, Dana Sitar, and others for sharing links on Facebook and other through other means.  I know there were more of you but it doesn’t tell me who.

Thank you to Wayne Manigo for spreading word about my book in the Washington D.C. scene.  Thank you to Michael Alfano, Matt I. and Matt B. for all of the work this year.  Also, thank you to Dan Chopin and Al Canal for many a gig as well.

Thank you to the comics I got advice from including Jeremy Essig, Greg Warren, Andy Smith, Josh Arnold, Heath Hyche, Matt Conty, Steve Sabo, and many others.

Thank you to Jimmy Pardo and the Never Not Funny Crew for plugging my book so many times on their podcast.  Thank you to the many other podcasts that allowed me to spread the word about Don’t Wear Shorts on Stage.

Thank you to Kris Wernowsky for being a good sport and inspiring so many topics to blog about.  Thank you to the Kansas City Scene, the Wasington D.C. scene, the Chattanooga Scene, and the Columbus, Ohio scene for letting me be a part of your Facebook groups as an outsider.

I know I’ve forgotten some so check back as I add more in the future, or just shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to plug you on here as well.  I need to wrap this up and head home…

And now, the little graphics and numbers that WordPress will have me share…

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 15,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals

About Rob Durham

With an English Degree, three years as a doorman at the Columbus Funnybone, over a decade of stand-up experience, and a recent certification in teaching high school English class, writing a book seemed like the next inevitable step for Rob Durham. The son of a coach, Rob has an excellent ability to teach and explain things in the easiest and most direct way possible. His (often labeled ridiculous) memory allows him to think of every possible situation that a new comic might face because at one point he was there too. Rob gives an inside look at comedy that doesn’t sugarcoat the challenges every performer faces. Without ego and the myth that “anyone can do it” Rob gives the reader a true feel of what living the so-called dream feels like, from preparing for that first open mic night to touring the country.
