WHY THEY BOOKED ME

I'm newish at standup. These are the reasons behind some of the shows I've been on.
  1. 1.
    The host had seen me at a few open mics and thought I was reasonably funny.
    This has only happened once, to my knowledge.
  2. 2.
    The host needed more women on the lineup and thought it would look bad if he booked his girlfriend first.
  3. 3.
    The host needed more women on the lineup.
  4. 4.
    The host needed more women for the all-women show.
  5. 5.
    The host needed more women for a different all-women show, this one produced by two men.
  6. 6.
    Someone dropped out and needed a last-minute replacement.
  7. 7.
    The host needed more women on the lineup and asked his male friend who has a crush on me if he knew any women who could do a show that night.
