Public Jerkery, I Mean, My Stand-Up Debut

I have a raging sinus infection. My throat hurts and I'm half-deaf from all the fluid buildup in my ears. My deep fried nerves keep waking me up at 5:30 every morning. I've written and re-written and rehearsed and timed my material so many times I'm totally immune to whatever might actually still be funny.

Nevertheless - tonight. 9:30. Bad Dog Tavern. My first stand-up performance. Friends, drinks, laughs, cameras.

Be there for this once in a lifetime event! Well, or watch it here on a videoclip later. Whatever. It's cold outside. I wouldn't want to go out if I were you either.

Break a leg!

(or would "develop pneumonia" be more apropos?)

I saw you at the Bad Dog last night (I was the woefully underprepared-in-comparison-to-you girl that went after you). Last night I was really impressed with you and after reading your blog (found through the Bastion) I'm even more so.

You made me laugh and I am happy that I was a part of your history-making first stand-up appearance.

Hey, other open mic first timer! Thanks for the compliments. I think you did great, although I admit being in quite a daze after I wrapped up. E-mail me!
