Trying stand-up comedy in her 40's, because being a broke single mom just wasn't stressful enough.
Looking for something specific?

I haven’t written anything on here in ages, and I apologize to my awesome readers for that. I have been writing, just comedy. I have been bitten in the ass by the comedy bug (yeah, sorry about that awful metaphor). When I’m not with my children, I’m either writing comedy, reading books about comedy, or performing comedy. I fell hard, and comedy, she is a cruel mistress (I’m…

I am alive fellow tumblrs. I have been spending my time lately with my kids and comedy. AND that is really kind of it.
I was asked to participate in a local comedy/music fest that takes place in late October early November that features nationally touring comedians and about 300 bands so of course I have been freaking out about that because it is big honor to be asked to be included. They chose only 3 local comedians so I have spent my time convincing myself I deserve to be there. My name is on the poster and might be on the t-shirts. God help everyone if it is on shirts because from here on every time anything is asked of me I will answer with “MY NAME IS ON A SHIRT”.
I miss you guys. Looks like I’ve lost a bunch of followers. So what, a girl can’t see saw between narcissism and crippling self-doubt? Is that not entertaining for you? What the hell do you people want?
I have absolutely no reason to post this gif. None. I just felt like I couldn’t NOT post it.
I know, I’m away from here for days, then I pop in with this. It’s what makes me such a valued member of this community.
There is a guy who follows me on Twitter and has seen me do standup several times and he wants to take me on a date. I am seriously concerned for him because why? Pretty sure this just means it’s time to go back into therapy. Truthful Thursday is a thing.
LOOK YOU GUYS. LOOOOOOOK. We have grey scrubs now, and they are glorious and soft and comfortable and we all look so much better, especially me, because come on, I’m adorable in this picture. Please ignore that bruise on my arm.
deechv said: You were AWESOME. It’s gonna be hard work but I think your comedy will blossom nicely.
You’re the best! I loved meeting you in person, and your wife and daughter as well. All of you are lovely! I am working hard, I wish you had seen me on a night when I HAD a voice and didn’t feel crappy, but I think I pulled it off the best I could considering. Thank you for coming!
I am FINALLY updating on my weekend in Texas. I flew out, ended up stranded in DFW airport for the night because there were no other flights out after my initial flight was delayed due to storms, so I spent the night in the platinum lounge. It wasn’t bad actually. Not at all. Met a friend who was a guidance counselor in a middle school, very nice lady, we hung out together. Got to Texas a day late at about 10 am, my bro and sis in law took me to brunch, I napped, then I got up and went to the Civic Center to do my set, the picture is me backstage in the women’s dressing room. I had almost no voice, but my set went well I think. The first three who placed were awarded, the organizer of the fest let me know (in confidence, but I assume no other comedians follow me on here) that I came in fourth, two votes away from third, and that makes me VERY happy. Flew home, and ended up in bed for two days from a respiratory infection. Lots of sleep, lots of hot tea with whiskey, and today I’m almost back to normal, back at work.
It was SO FUN, and my dear #deechv and his wife and daughter came and saw me and I’m so glad they did! I had a blast, met a lot of nice comedians, made some new friends/fans, and I would do it again in a second.
I’m in Orlando to fly out to Texas tomorrow for the heart of Texas comedy showcase in Waco. I am excited!! I’ve had a terrible sore throat for a few days so hopefully that clears up and I’m feeling 100%. It’s only a 5 minute set and I feel comfortable with that. I had my first feature last night which is about a 15-25 minute set and I didn’t SUCK but I was nowhere near as good as I know I can be and have been in the past. Aw well learning experience.
I will update throughout the weekend. Going to sleep now :-) miss you guys.
Oh nothing, just having a panic attack over memorizing my set for Wednesday. The one in August is even longer. I sent the guy who is headlining and I am opening for in August a message and said “are you worried I’m going to be awful?” And he said “nope. I wouldn’t have asked you if I didn’t think you were ready. There’s plenty of time to get this down. You’ll be great”. Nice to know one of us has confidence in me.
Coumadin clinic for the first time in a month. Of course my INR is out of whack but it’s too high which is better than too low but still. Blaaaaah
Also I got my haircut for $12 and I kind of love it.
I haven’t been on here. I miss you all. Hopefully everybody is doing well and being nice to each other.
I’m having a comedy filled summer of open mics and next week my first feature gig and in August another one. The boys are enjoying their summer break and will be home next week for a few days at least then they go back to my moms and I am off to Texas for the weekend and the Heart of Texas comedy showcase. Woot.
