Open Mic? Here I come. I have been writing, quietly, alone, after everyone’s asleep. All moving towards a single goal, Open Mic. I made my mind up a long time ago, that I wanted this. I have been writing and writing, pages of non-sense. If 3-5% of what I have written is “funny” then that will make for a solid 5 minutes of comedy. Will it be funny? I’m not worried about that right now. Will I be able to present it, in front of total strangers? That’s what scares me. I have confidence, and I think I’ll be ok, but I’m will to fail trying. What do I have to lose? Nothing. What do I have to gain? Everything.
This adventure is more about me becoming comfortable with me, then anything else. I enjoy writing, I enjoy making people laugh. So, if my “after hours” project becomes something? Fantastic. If not? Also, Fantastic. If I learn who I am through this? That’s a victory. I have spent my life chasing a dollar, worried about what people think about me. The whole time, telling everyone I don’t care what they think. Makes sense right? So I’ll start this adventure in 2020 by telling terrible jokes, to nonexistent crowds. Hoping for a small laugh, or just not to bomb. But that is part of this process, Failure. And with failure comes accomplishment. And my accomplishment will be coming out of my comfort zone, doing something I want to do, without fear of judgement. Here’s to nothing, and everything all at once.
Coming in Hot for 2020
