Thank you @Spencers Gifts. People always ask “why are you drinking water out of a mug?”
Can I just tell you all how much I love this?
I’m quite a junky for inspirational quotes with advice from other comedians. From famous well-known comedians to aspiring lads like myself, if it worked for you or sounds like it might work for me, I keep it and make pretty pictures with them and read them. I’ve decided to share them with all of you! So here’s the first one!
If you have any you also hold dear or any advice you want to give to me from you, send it on over and I’ll post it.
“Either way…you are probably going to have to make sacrifices. You probably are going to have to work in some job you hate for a while so that you can survive. You might have to lose some personal relationships and some leisure time in your life to make room for this crazy dream of yours.
Set your sights on things you want, but don’t get tunnel vision. You never know what round-about path can bring you to that goal.
You’re always gonna have off nights. A huge crowd, perfect performance…you still might not get laughs. But I learned that night about the feeling of “what if.” You don’t want to leave the stage going “what if I had actually tried?” If you do your best, then even if it doesn’t go well, you know you at least put forth your best effort. There are so many things you can’t control in this business. But you CAN control your effort and your level of presence in any given situation.
When you DECIDE you want something - like really really make a choice in the deepest part of your soul - you are going to inevitably move towards that somethingstart making little choices like “No, I will not sleep in today, because I need to work on some jokes.”

tizersoze asked: Thanks for following me! I checked out your standup vid and really liked it ("Guess who forgot the safe word"), keep up the good work!
Gracias good soul!
presidentfartfeathers asked: Thanks for following! You have bigger balls than I do. I want to try standup. I have to write down some material first.
Try taking a class or looking up some advice online. I haven’t worked as hard as I should up to this point but I’ve got some plans for this year!
Ju can do it.
I’m still alive
This is my dream. I’ve decided to step it up and stop procrastinating. SOOOO
I’ve decided to do an open mic this weekend. I’m not sure if it’ll be Saturday or Sunday but I am going to throw myself out there and post the video up for you all to laugh with or at. As long as you’re laughing.
So here’s the video of my performance at the Comedy Cellar’s Student Showcase… a whopping 7 minutes for those of you who have nothing better to do!
But you may like it and if you don’t like the jokes you can laugh at the fact that I
a)froze on stage for a few seconds
b)had my zipper open THE ENTIRE TIME!
Smooth. I know. It was wonderful.
Checkz it outz.
