This should probably be titled "How to Hire the Right Comedian".  It is easy to hire a comedian. Just do a google search of your city and comedian and you'll probably come up with a hundred youtube videos, websites, and even some agents who book comics.  Pick out a few really great websites, send them an email, give them a price your willing to pay, tell them you want "clean comic".  The comedian will respond that of course they can work "clean", of course they are perfect, and you hire them....

One Day to starting the tour!

Posted by Rene Bray on Monday, July 12, 2010, In : Comedy 
I am very excited about starting the long tour for Stand Ups for the Troops Comedy Tour.  I have been so focused on the logistics and wardrobe that I had almost forgot why Iwe doing the tour until this morning.  I have had the advantage of spending time in the Lawyers for Warriors office and this morning they received another disturbing case.  A service person on his third tour of duty came home to find that his wife had left him, taken their children, and drained the bank account.  You would...

Stand Ups for the Troops - We are on our way

Posted by Rene Bray on Thursday, July 1, 2010, In : Comedy 
This comedy tour is finally starting to seem very real now.  We are less than two weeks from our start and things are starting to come together.  Martza, the executive director of Lawyers for Warriors, and I did our first TV interview to promote the tour.  Polk County Government TV is the best.  Nate and Bryan were the best.  They even went above and beyond the call of duty and helped us film our PSA's.  It was 110 degrees and they are the most patient men that I have ever met.  Here is the l...

Things couldn't be going better for the "Stand Ups for the Troops" comedy tour.  We kick off the run on July 13 at Coconuts Comedy Club in St. Pete Beach.  We are excited about the tour.  Johnny Mac and I will not only being doing the comedy show, but will also be visiting at veterans hospitals and clinics along the way.  We decided we'd really live on the edge and we'll be doing video blogs, tweeting, and four square on the entire tour.  Time to show the world the really funny side of comedy...

When something so wrong can be so right!

Just when I was ready to lose my mind over some of the corporate garbage we have to go through, I found an old buddy who I hadn't seen for 18 years.  Almost worth all the hassle this corporation had put me through just to find him.

Also dealing with two stalkers this week.  These guys need to get a life and leave me alone.  My son has the perfect plan to unload these guys.  My son said, "Hey Mom, if you really want them gone, let them live with you for a week.  Oh they'll disappear then".  He'...

This week!

This is going to be an interesting week.  Usually I am worried about filling in my free time, but there doesn't seem to be any this week.

Monday, yesterday,  I had the pleasure of taping several episodes of "Latenight  Jacksonville"  with my friend Johnny Mac and Aaron Tucker.  It was so much fun and I got to wear several different outfits which I always enjoy.  I hope this show is a huge hit guys.

Thursday night I am at Gregory's in Cocoa Beach, FL.   It has been a long time since I worked tha...

Ever wonder what a comedians day is like?  Me too.  Nothing is ever normal.  Today I was just sitting by the pool minding my own business when I get a call that I have been chosen to appear on a Jacksonville, FL television show and it tapes in less than a week.  What am I going to wear?  Always the delimna for any woman.  Now my day is frenzied and no one is going to rest until the perfect outfit is chosen.  Oh and now they want me to be funny too.  Just pour on the pressure.   This is a drea...
