I'll make like a pencil and get to the point,
After three weeks or so of off-and-on work on my routine, talking to friends and family about what would be funny, writing and rewriting many jokes, and finally just deciding it was time to go balls deep, I was declared the funniest person in Grande Prairie.
I hadn't been so nervous about anything in more than three years since I first got behind a microphone on the radio. This went a heck of a lot better than that did too. All day long my stomach felt like it was tying itself in knots, and people were constantly telling me to chill out and just relax.
But finally, after I hit the stage, the headliner comedians who judged the competition had nothing but praise and really useful constructive criticism for my act and routine.
Plus, I had the support of more than a dozen of my friends who showed up to watch me perform. I really can't thank them enough because they were all a huge help in having me chill-the-F-out. Plus, more thanks have to go to my friends who helped me put together my routine.
Video footage was taken, and will be available to facebook friends at some point (hopefully later today) for everyone who wants to see my stage debut. I've also found a hack to embed facebook video on a blog, so check back here later this week to see if footage has gone up.
In the meantime, here's a couple photos of me on stage:
This is me pretty early on into my set
And mom (and my family in general), if you're reading this, you probably won't want to watch my comedy routine when it hit hits the internet, because then you'll see me in male stripper underwear.
Thanks again to everyone who came out to see me perform!
