Try The Bad Slava

Slava Yaryshkin(I tried saying it three times real fast, to no avail) is a stand-up comedian born in the USSR and living in NYC. Slava got on stage for the first time back in 2006.

In January 2008, He began a blog, Stand-Up Comedy 101 to help beginner comedians survive their first year in stand-up comedy. Slava says, “My purpose is to write the kind of blog I wish was available when I was starting out and the reason I want to help is because your first year of stand-up is the toughest.”

I discovered Slava’s blog through a Google Alert. Slava had written an entry about Google and MySpace blog search results.

I left some comments.

After that I decided to read more of Slava’s blog and it’s got some good stuff on it. I have added it to my “Links I Like” under the COMEDIANS section.

Slava also has a website for comedians listing Open Mikes in the NYC area and a few cities beyond at Bad Slava.

He’s already accepted me as his friend on MySpace and Facebook, so you know he’s “aces” in my book. I’m so needy.
