Interview with Comedian Jim Tews
QTqueenD: can we do an IM interview for my tumblr ?
QTqueenD: want to do it now
QTqueenD: or do i need to schedule an appointment
QTqueenD: I forgot these -> ?
hideadook: we can do it now
QTqueenD: Ok for the record what is your actual name and why am i interviweing you
hideadook: My actual name is James Wesley Tews and you're interviewing me because Dane Cook won't return your emails.
QTqueenD: Dane Cook is Dead
QTqueenD: to me
hideadook: He's still the number one searched comedian on myspace. Can't figure that out.
QTqueenD: How long have you been doing stand up comedy?
hideadook: just over five years
QTqueenD: What has been the biggest acomplishment so far in your career?
hideadook: Being able to live off of mostly comedy income. Since I started I've had to do less and less real work because I got more comedy work. And the more time you have to do comedy, the better you get at it. That's all I really want, is more time to work on comedy stuff.
QTqueenD: Thats pretty sweet
QTqueenD: What would you say is the hardest step when it comes to stand-up? Like is it in the writing the practice etc...
QTqueenD: oh and why?
hideadook: Discipline is the hardest thing. It's pretty necessary to be able to force yourself to do the work even when you don't want to. I think a lot of comics have self-discipline problems, obviously. But it's so necessary to buckle down and focus every once in a while
hideadook: so you can operate in the "normal" world
hideadook: you have to treat it like a real job
QTqueenD: but how would you get to treat it like a real job? Before you get paid to tell jokes you have to get good at it- how long was it before you started getting paid on regular basis and what did you have to do to get there?
hideadook: You have to treat it like a real job in the way that you can
hideadook: you can't call off or skip work. And you have to pretend you're getting paid, even when you aren't
hideadook: because every shitty, free thing you do eventually leads to something better.
hideadook: It took me four years until I got regularly paid from comedy, and it's still shaky sometimes. A lot of it was just waiting out the quitters. So many people I started with bailed because they weren't that into it, or they got discouraged. But I was delusional enough to keep going.
hideadook: that's what's really required. A complete lack of rationality
QTqueenD: Thats what i hear
QTqueenD: You have a sketch you run called 'The Opener'- what is it about?
hideadook: it's a web-series about the beginning years of my professional career. It's a little exaggerated, and depressing, but I think it's funny.
hideadook: it's focused on that time between open mic'ing and starting to really do it full time
hideadook: It also features a lot of much more established comics, and their good/bad advice
QTqueenD: Its hilarious-- the last one ou did from LA- was the best one so far-- simply because your acting was hilarious
hideadook: thanks, I think that was the one where I "acted" uncomfortable. Which didn't require much acting.
QTqueenD: Well thanks for this Mini Interview- I will think of some clever questions for next time
hideadook: I'm on quite frequently, so anytime
