I have begun a journey in search of living my dream to do the thing that I have felt called to do. Stand in front of the world and make you laugh.
I am two weeks in to a life long journey of becoming professionally funny and I realized the first time I got on stage that this is where I want to be.
There is a strange power to the microphone and the set up of a crowd, even in small weird places, having all the attention turned to me is intoxicating in a wonderful and terrifying way.
I feel the weight of the responsibility of entertaining strangers but the excitement and power that it brings is what I have always felt. I have always thought I was supposed to save the people from the boredom of life AKA school or work.
Now I’m doing it in a way that is more acceptable, work never liked when I talked about my balls.
So I’m doing it, and I must continue to do it as often as I can. I am going everyday right now, I am recording everything and working on crafting something funny and interesting.
My hope is to be able to take all the information after 365 days of open mics and produce a movie of the journey. If I get good the movie may be good. If I suck well then the movie will be amazing. Either way I’m excited for this journey and hope you will join me on it.
