Secret Society of Comedy: Seth Herzog, Jamie Lee and Craig Baldo on their worst gigs

Among the offerings on Official Comedy’s YouTube channel is a weekly series called “Secret Society of Comedy,” in which comedians sit backstage or in an otherwise private setting and reveal secrets from the show biz.

This week’s episode finds Jamie Lee, Seth Herzog and Craig Baldo answering the question (who curates these questions and writes them down on the little cards? that remains a secret!), “What’s the worst show you ever performed, and why?”

For Herzog, the gig involves drunk NFL players heckling him six minutes into an hourlong gig. For Baldo, it happened when he opened for a DJ in a Days Inn in Allentown, Penn. And for Lee, an audience of five isn’t so bad, but when four of the five are blind, well, even you can see where this is headed.

Roll the clip!
