Sooooo, some of us have done some open mics and stuff. I've done them for both comedy and music.

The problem is my last name is awkward and very french.

So I've come up with one stage name, Mike Marlow, and before you ask, yes it is named after Joseph Conrad's protagonist/narrator, Charles Marlow. So that's me... (I also have a secret Ziggy Stardust-esque alter-ego named Danny Dangerous, but I've never actually used that).

So has anybody used a stage name? Do you feel weird about it? You shouldn't its pretty cool.

Of course. I get some odd looks when I fill out forms.

I know a guy who calls himself "Sticky Sweet". It makes me cringe.

Really? That's ****ing bad.

Mike Marlow actually sounds like a real name.

In all seriousness, the only band I've been in that gigged, as and when the "get to know the band while the bassist finds his ****ing tuner" segment comes along, we just used first names. I guess if I was doing open mic(no ****ing chance IRL, but if I did...) it'd just be "hi, I'm Slapsy, and this one's called 'I Drink My Own Urine Because It's Sterile And I Like The Taste'" or whatever.

I'm not comfortable with telling you all my stage name, because I don't want my cam site overcrowded with UG'ers.

My parents were considerate enough to give me a nice sounding, simple name.

The Thrashtastics 15 are not about stage names.

My stage name is the same that's on my birth certificate and ID. Go figure.

Nobody has any idea how to pronounce it. I actually grew up thinking my middle name was *pregnant pause*

sort of like if your middle name was "," that'd be sweet.

Stage name? You mean the name that the human I'm presently wearing used to have before being turned into a skin suit disguise?
#28
I have a very long Polish last name that I have shortened to the first 4 letters so it makes the name West. Much easier for people to remember and pronounce.

Naw, **** that noise. My name is fine.

Although when I used to do open mics my buddy and I would introduce ourselves as two opposite people or people commonly associated with each other, such as Barack Obama and Joe Biden, etc.

It wasn't actually to hide our identities, seeing as our actual names were usually introduced by an emcee beforehand.

Haha fair enough I'd do the same anyway. I mean I have to shorten my name just so baristas can write it on the cup without repeating myself 5 times, I doubt I can get away with using my full name in all situations

My name is three letters, one syllable. I still have to repeat myself five times.
