Interview with Damon Blake

Damon BlakeComedy Blogedy: How long have you been gigging in stand-up?

Damon Blake: I started in 2007 and was able to get to the semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny after a couple of gigs, but my head wasn’t properly in performing so I soon quit stand-up having won nothing, my only trophy being my regret.

Comedy Blogedy: How would you describe your comedy?

Damon Blake: It’s sarcastic one-liners delivered in a narrative in an attempt to hide any sort of personality. Some people use stand-up as catharsis, I prefer to curl up into a ball of sadness every night, like some sort of glum grub.
