Comedians don’t get sick leave

Having spent a few days ill in bed last week, I was suddenly very grateful for a day job with sick pay. If you’re a professional comic and can’t turn up no one’s going to pay you.

I'm willing to try anything

I guess that gives you the incentive to only cancel when physically necessary. But is there a danger of not performing well, failing to make people laugh and maybe never getting booked in that venue again? Still comedy is a risky business – not one for the frail or the elderly.

And it’s good for me to be reminded that even as I look at the pros of the comedy world with jealousy, there are some upsides to my current situation.
