Comedy in the Hammer: Devin Bateson

Comedy in the Hammer Week 10

This week I’m joined by local comedian, sketchtroupemate and all around good friend Devin Bateson!

 

Comedy in the Hammer Devin Bateson

 

MS: How long have you been doing stand up for?

DB: Maybe 3-5 years. I can’t remember. Time is a just a concept created by rich people to control the poor.

MS: What’s your favourite room to perform at in the city?

DB: Baltimore house. Kev Sheeler runs a great room smack dab in the middle of a music open mic. Sometimes it’s a struggle but I like a struggle if every show were easy we’d all be garbage. But it’s super fun cause the crowd’s a little bit weirder than your standard club or bar and I like that and I like Kev. Hammer Night Live is cool too I guess.
MS: How do you usually deal with hecklers/got any good stories??

DB: Lately I just stop talking and look at them until they stop talking. It works really well and helps me stay calm. That or I find out their childhood sweetheart marry them, raise a family and have a happy healthy life. That really shows ’em.

Most people leave me alone though because I’m loud and weird. And hecklers were created by the government to keep down the poor.
MS: What advice would you give newer comics?

DB: Give up and/or lend me twenty dollars. Or just keep at it. Don’t just focus on doing a bunch of shows. Make sure that you are striving to be good. And I mean a good person and good to yourself. Also don’t trust the cops.

MS: What’s the one joke you’ve tried over and over again to make work but for whatever reason cannot get right?
DB: My life.

 

MS: Where can we check you out online?
DB: Google.ca search Devin Bateson or www.devinbateson.com feel free to give me $20 dollars.
MS: Are there any videos we can see online?
DB: Yes. Some really good ones too.
