This past Wednesday I spent four glorious minutes on stage doing stand- up! I know right! For the past year or so a friend has been trying to persuade me to do stand-up. I didn’t know where to start. I love comedy and comedians but I didn’t want to take on someone persona. There are different types of comedy and everyone has a different approach to comedy and you have to find your own rhythm. She signed me up on a Thursday… I was told Saturday that I’d have to “perform” the following Wednesday. So, I had a couple days to come up with material. I was intimated by the idea of standing up and trying to make people laugh. I think that I’m A LOT of FUN but…not stand up comic funny. I’m comfortable with being on stage but, the idea of trying to tell a few jokes on que is something different. Tuesday afternoon I finally jotted down some things I wanted to talk about.
In the beginning of my set you can hear a little tremble in my voice and I forgot some of my notes which was good because it seemed more natural. I find it easy to talk about what you know! I definitely have intentions to do it again. Sometimes you have to push yourself out of your comfort zone and try something different. Try something that you’re afraid to do. GO for it!
I loved the experience and I definitely plan to do it again.
If you like to hear it…here it goes!
Until next time…
