I remember my worst time quite, quite clearly. It was a five-minute set in the darkest, quietest room I’ve ever been in. It was horrible for me, and I don’t even mind bombing that much.
It’s refreshing to hear big time comics talk about their worst bombs, because it’s humanizing. They weren’t always awesome all the time.
Here’s a little video of Jim Gaffigan talking about his worst bomb, I believe was filmed right before he went on The Tonight Show. I actually don’t really consider his story a “bomb,” even though that’s how he sells it, since he saved it and the audience was fine. But hey, maybe Gaffigan never bombs.
