There is nothing I hate worse than a comic wanting to borrow my tripod , camera, charger, pen ect, ect... I mean once or twice is ok, but at that point you need to realize you need that particular item . Now recording someone's set for them is a whole different situation for me. I don't mind doing that because it is not a lot more work than what I am doing for myself. Plus all my stuff stays with me . I'm not spending half the night tracking down my stuff because you forgot to bring it back to me. So listen if you are pursuing a comedy career or are just a open Mic warrior , go buy your own stuff . If comedy is not important enough for you to spend a little money to make yourself better then just quit . It would make life easier on those of us who are serious.
