August 2017 has been my best month yet in comedy.
I had 10 paid gigs. From 3 different established comedy clubs. In 2 different states.
4 paid gigs at Laffs in Tucson.
2 paid gigs at The Ice House.
4 paid gigs at Flappers Claremont.
Plus I've done shows in Hollywood and Burbank and I'll be doing a show at a Hooters soon.
Ive also booked 8 more paid gigs for the future as well.
This is feeling more and more real everyday.
Thursday (8/24) at The Ice House was a real defining moment for me. I felt like a comedian. For the first time, I felt like someone that has really developed an act.
Standing on that main stage was so surreal. To think 2 years ago I was just starting out, and now I'm playing the main room in a show booked by the house booker is just amazing.
I will be writing a few more blogs about this feeling and how the "Debbie downers" can be the real motivation for what God knew you had inside of you all along...but until then, I just want to say, I'm coming into my own...and it's amazing.

Blogging allows for me to rant when there is no stage in the moment to talk about what's important and/or funny to me.
