haven't said much about stand-up these days, huh? yeah, no.
but in the true spirit of No Joy in '06, i told myself i couldn't chicken out anymore. stand-up is something i want to really try, really pursue, really make an effort at. (frankly, if i'm going to fail i want it to be because i'm not good, not because i didn't try.)
it still terrifies me.
i still want to stall on doing open mics, and when and if i DO get up the nerve to do an open mic, i want to not tell anyone and just do it in my own private way until i can guarantee i'm good.
but it doesn't work like that. and i'm never going to get better if i don't perform. and this is the year of forcing myself to do what i know i should be doing. what i know, deep down, i need to be doing.
so now, instead of hiding, i'm doing the opposite -- in genuine "She Walks" fashion. i'm blogging about it so that i hold myself accountable.
I will be performing in an open mic this Friday night in San Francisco. The show begins at 6 p.m. and is free!
I will also be performing in my "grad" show on Saturday night. That show is also at 6 p.m. and is also free.
[so, um, what have we got to lose, right?]
I hereby invite any and all of you to come out and support! I promise nothing in the way of quality, but would love Love LOVE to see a friendly face or two. Plus you can BYO! And I promise to do the same for you when it's your turn.
