A Comedian Unleashed

A Comedian Unleashed

I did it. I crossed stand-up comedy off my bucket list! My new funny friends and I performed our first 5 minute set to a sold out audience at the John Candy Box Theatre on August 2nd. The past 7 weeks we have been enrolled in Stand-Up One with comedian Todd Van Allen at Second City. I have a new respect for comedians because it was hella hard. But, it was also a total kick. The language I use is not kid or work appropriate so watch at home with a glass of wine. Hope you like it.

If you want to see the entire show, it is in two parts (I’m at the end of the first and the beginning of the second, so watch the above for my part). The show was surprisingly professional considering it was the first time for all of us. My friends all killed it!

  1. Lady – You ROCKED IT!. I’ll watch the whole thing when I have more time, but I saw this and just had to watch you immediately. You are just like what you write. Except you didn’t fall off the stage, so still no recent ER visit. Yeah you!!!!!

  2. You did fantastic! I’m fangirling.

    Favorite part was the intimidation step 🙂

  9. Bravo! I love the bravery and spirit of taking a risk like this one! And am glad Mister (aka shower friend) was there to support!

  10. That was a fucking great set. I especially loved the fantasizing about having Alzheimer’s and the great single cackle that went through the room at that.

    • I haven’t been able to watch it back to here the cackle. There was a big guy lounging in the front row who was apparently a fan of mine because he laughed at everything, including my breathing. Must have been him. Thanks for watching, Christopher.

  11. Very impressive! You looked very comfortably up there in front of all those people.

  12. Wow, you are amazing. Of course I knew this, but you are truly amazing and very funny and amazing too. You didn’t look at all scared although I was holding my breath the whole time for you knowing that you would be simply amazing. YUP, YOU NAILED IT! Love Mum
