Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gaylord Dingler is an American stand-up comic, best known for his infamous sessions at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood, California. Dingler was known by Comedy Store patrons as a "Potlucker," aka someone who performs during the club's open mike nights, which would routinely attract 40 comics vying for only 20 spots. For the Potluck show, aspiring performers drew a number from a weathered frozen strawberry bucket - those chosen got three minutes on stage. No qualifications were necessary. The Potluck was a rite of passage for many aspiring comedians - comics who successfully performed routinely at the potluck often graduated to paying jobs.show more
