The “Journey” continues

Last night I made my stand up debut at the Hollywood Lounge. I have a lot of friends who are stand ups and have wanted me to do this for a long time.  So I thought that it was time and decided to perform last night. After all, part of the journey is to try new and exciting things. We grow as artists, and also it is one more thing that I can put on my resume as a skill. Hey isn’t this how Ellen started after all?

As I entered the room, I felt confident, yet terrified . I mean I have been on a stage since I was very young. It is one thing to act on stage, but quite another to be oneself.  Patty Vacarella  our “Leopard Lady” hostess made me feel at ease. and so did my fellow comics.  I guess part of the secret of comedy is just getting comfortable , then worry about the funny. I have heard comics talking about the “rush” ,but I guess that will come in time. In the meantime,  I will continue on the journey of an actress to fame.

   Troop leader Patty plays emcees to her monthly” Let It All Hang Out” crowd.

  Thomas Bottoms is a vet who hosts at 3160 on Monday nights as well. Comics spend their time going from mike to mike.

  Darren Marshall tells of the dangers of working at the Field Museum. Most comics have other jobs as well.

   Kate Cullen recently graduated from a comedy  course. She is no stranger to the open mike.

“Life in the big city isnt anything like it is on tv. I dont hang out with my friends at the coffee shop or drink cosmos with the girls.” and so begins my comic career.

The comics take a bow.
