Opinion: Comedian Joe Rowntree On The Thrill Of Being A Stand-Up

Next year I’m 37. That means I will have been doing comedy for 20 years. It sounds ridiculous even writing it especially as it feels like yesterday I did my first open spot as a bright eyed, naively ambitious 17 year old at a pub in South London.

Can’t believe two decades have nearly passed and I’ve been making a modest living from stand up for 15 years. It’s been 10 years since my close friends stopped asking me to go out at weekends to catch up: “really sorry mate...but I’ve got a gig.”
