Every working comedian has at least one of those moments in their career. That moment when they take the stage and things just do not go as they wanted. Whether it be a bad venue, audience, or bad jokes, the show turns from bad show to a nightmare. Nightmare Gig is when The Laugh Button asks a comedian to describe their most horrific stand-up moment.
We asked Big Jay Oakerson to tell us about the story we heard about Sweet Cheeks, a comedy show in Atlantic City that Kevin Hart used to run that had notoriously tough to impress crowds. Jay and his comedy peers (particularly Kurt Metzger) have spoken about this show before. So we asked Jay to tell us about his nightmareist encounter at the show.
