Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As everyone eats the dumbest bird in the world and waits for tryptophan to leg sweep everyone into a coma, I wait for my special. Which is in twenty days! I’m on an epic quest to slay the audience. The journey continues, but for now, I eat some turkey and watch some tv. It feels good to have a goal. Super Mario would be boring if there was no goal in the end. It’s feels good to have something to keep me moving and motivated.
If I would be thankful for anything, it would be comedy. Sure, I probably would be a better person if it wasn’t for stand-up (we all would), but I love it. Stand-up is like Fight Club. You come out of it a different person. I’ve made a lot of friends and I’ve met very interesting people. Stand-up has opened doors to places I would never had known existed. I came to this planet wanting to be an actor and comic book illustrator. Now, all I think about is becoming a better comic. It has consumed me. Both good and bad. They weren’t kidding about struggle and sacrifice. I don’t know anyone that has had a smooth ride on the stand-up train.
So, as I finely tune my act for the special Dec. 18th, I thank comedy for making me the man boy I am today. Oh, and I guess my family and friends and stuff too.
