In the world of nightclub performers, mostly stand-up comics and musical artists, there are things called circuits.
A circuit is a series of venues that will book an act for a tour. There are small circuits in the South, the Midwest, and other areas. I am a comedian, and I love the circuit tours. It allows me to book several shows in advance. Getting to each show is my own problem, but it’s nice knowing that I have steady work. My favorite place to perform is on the Weed Circuit, which is a series of cannabis dispensaries and smokers lounges. A lot of my comedy material is based on my life as a chronic cannabis user, and it always kills in these venues. My last comedy tour took me through four different states, where I performed at sixteen different cannabis dispensaries! This makes it the biggest comedy tour I have ever done, and the owners of the cannabis franchises are already interested in booking future dates! The Weed Circuit has been a huge boost to my career, although with so many other cannabis-themed comedians I have to work hard to stand out from the pack. Here is the key to a great set – I can’t smoke cannabis beforehand. Although I smoke marijuana every single day, and write all of my jokes about getting high, if I am high while on stage then my performance suffers. I see a lot of other comics smoke cannabis before going on stage, and it makes them a little flat. Keeping myself sharp on stage is what gets me more laughs.
