We Need A Universal Definition of "Stand-Up Comedian."

(This is really only gonna be funny to comics)

I went to an open mic last night which was MC'ed by (what I assumed was) an intern at the club. He couldn't have been more than eighteen years old.

One of his jokes began, "Being a stand-up comic is expensive...." I was thinking, "Wow, he does
real shows?"

His joke continued with, "...paying five bucks every time you get on stage adds up...."

That wasn't the punchline (the joke went on), but it was for me.
