Six Reasons Why I'm Quitting Stand-Up Comedy

Ben Morgan

Set up your own 'comedian' page on Facebook if you like, but until you are writing 'comedian' in your passport it's just a hobby. It's an expensive one too. Getting to gigs isn't cheap, and if like me you live outside of shitty London and are permanently skint it rules out a lot of opportunities.

My heart went out for our two-time Olympic gold medal winning heroine Rebecca Adlington last night on ITV's I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here. It was only last year that we hosted the greatest sporting event in the world and our Olympians were given their rightful place as national treasures in the press.

So for me, the strike is over: not for any particularly good reason, just because it has gone on a week, and it is time to pass the baton over to Frankie Boyle. I was not sure when I began how long I would go for, since I had never foregone food for 48 hours before. I am satisfied with a week - it is longer than I expected to last, though less time than I could have.
