I was actually doing standup comedy for roughly 15 years on a common basis however something changed the last few years.
I was actually wondering if it was because of the lockdown with Covid, or was I just getting insanely old? I don’t seem to have the motivation I once had to push myself to even step on stage.
I called my mom & told her about it & she told me to not get complacent or my dreams would completely slip away. She knows how much I enjoyed doing stand up & was somewhat worried when I told her I basically lost my way. I still actually recall the way the musty seasoned air conditioning smelled in the club where I would do a good amount of my shows. Occasionally, I would tap on the air duct while we were in my set & a whole bunch of dust would fall onto the stage & everyone would laugh a good amount. I miss being able to connect with people in a beautiful way & have now contacted a couple of clubs about starting a weekly show. I can’t just rest at my home every night listening to my air conditioning equipment turn on & off or I will lose my mind. My mom is correct, just take the initiative & move in the direction of your dreams & they will come true. I guess the new club has an air conditioning equipment vent right above the stage too, so it will make for some more good times when I pound on the ducts & dust moves out. I genuinely hope they have some heating in the nippy season too because it can get pretty cold at night.
