I Attended a Seminar! And then I Published a Post about it!

I hit Publish!! After a solid 14 day absence, I finally posted on RAEZYN again. I didn’t stop writing for those two weeks, I kept pumping out jokoids. Regardless, yesterday I wrote a thrilling account of my first time on stage!

As everyone is aware by now, I am new to stand-up comedy. I need guidance: How to write jokes, how to structure a set, and how to avoid fainting on stage. So last weekend, I attended a stand-up comedy seminar taught by comedian Joe Matarese. It was well worth driving 2 hours one-way to Baltimore MD.

I met some local comedians that were not only funny, but supportive as well. I had some time on stage during which I was *supposed* to perform my act (read what actually happened). Instead of rolling their eyes at the newbie from Virginia, the comics gave me some helpful suggestions on how to develop my act and they even laughed at some of my jokes!

In order to become successful, you need the support of your peers. And as it turns out, comics are willing to support each other because they’ve all started at the beginning. Experienced comedians know that they wouldn’t be where they are in their careers without the encouragement of supporters. Therefore, this group of funny Baltimore comedians welcomed me, the confused beginner from Virginia.

On Saturday evening, I dragged my husband along with me to watch Joe Matarese headline at Magooby’s Joke House. Paul Spratt had the guest spot and Ayanna Dookie was the feature. Together, they reaffirmed the fact that I love comedy.

What am I Doing with my Life?

I am still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life.  I’m not sure if I’ll ever know.

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a film director.  Then I arbitrarily decided to be a psychiatrist instead.  College convinced me that I didn’t want to do that either, so I became an investigator.

Now I’m trapped in your typical, 9-5, boring I-hate-my-life desk job.  I’m thinking it’s time for a change.  The problem is this: when you spend six years of your life focused on one career, you don’t build experience in anything else.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer.  I wrote all the time, when I wasn’t busy doing other things.  Most of what I wrote was hilarious; a lot of it was just crazy.  I’m kind of a crazy person.  Most people don’t know about my craziness because I’m a relatively quiet person.  I keep most of the craziness to myself.  But that all changes now.

If I’m going to be famous, I figure I’m going to have to share my craziness with others.  So I started a humor blog, Funny or Crazy?.

Since a lot of what I write isn’t explicitly funny, I have started this blog.  This blog will probably be more like your average, “guess what I did today?” rambling, over-sharing blog.  I have so many observations of the world, maybe somebody will want to read them.
