I'm no comedian, but I would get involved in every open mic night possible. Getting more practice on stage would be awesome and you would probably also meet a lot of people. You never know what connection is going to help propel you to the next level in your career.
I was not talking about me...I am blessed to be doing okay in the "getting gigs" department. I was just curious as to how other entertainers go about finding their gigs. Maybe they are doing something that I am not doing and it can help me up my game.
