    So has anyone ever done stand up before?
    I'm doing it for the first time tomorrow night and am very nervous.

    Take a deep breath, push up on the armrests, straighten your legs and it's pretty plain sailing from there.

    Do you have lots of self-loathing and needyness issues? If so, you'll probably be a great stand up.

    Should be sorted so. :p

    Fear of public speaking shall be a joy to overcome, considering I don't just collapse under pressure.

    Make sure you smash everybody's phones in case they try to steal your material. In fact, best to just gas the entire audience at the outset in case they try memorising anything.

    They're simply lashing out against centuries of oppression.

    Just a couple of tips.

    Make sure you've got some small notes on you when you go on, just in case.
    Don't drink any alcohol beforehand, drink lots after.

    First rule of countering a heckle, repeat what the guy has said so everyone knows what the heckle was, it gives you more time to think of a comeback too.

    Or you can just do what Harry Hill does and say "you may heckle me sir but I'm safe in the knowledge that I have a roast dinner waiting at home for me"

    Got the most laughs of the night and qualified for the final.
    It's such a good feeling when the audience laugh at the first joke. Got rounds of aplause aplenty!
