Hosting Improv open mic at Bad Ass Coffee in Salt Lake City, December 2015. I thought the show was over, but the audience convinced me to play a song.
Me: What song?
Audience: Some suggestions. [I paraphrase.]
Audience: Joey Cougar & The Starfish
Me: Yeah, the drummer is in the trunk.
Specific audience member: You have a fake dog in your trunk. [I did.]
Me: Ok. I can either explain that in a story or make up a song. What do you want?
Wise-ass audience member: Tell the story as a song.
This is the result.

Hello dear readers.
As many of you know, I have been doing stand-up comedy at open-mics for a while now. Now it is time to see what I can do on my own.
That’s right. I have my first ever solo stand-up comedy show! And you’re invited! (Except for you. You know who you are. Why do you even come here still? Just to check up on me. I’m fine. Ok? I’m fine.)
Here’s the scene!
The Joseph Richards Show starring your host, Joseph Patrick Richards, is coming your way for a night of improvisational stand-up comedy where anything can happen.
Join us September 11, 2015 at Bad Ass Coffee (3530 South State Street in Salt Lake City, UT). Show starts at 7pm.
