So, give-up a week of preparation? A week of many guest spots to hone my craft? A week of 'We Love Comedy' shows and a chance to practice in front of good sized audiences? And possibly most important of all, give up one of my only days off without a comedy spot booked?
Of course I said yes... Well, it was more like (after half an hour thinking about it): 'Ummm, ok, errrrr, hmmmmm, alright, let's whip that band-aid off...' For all the extra preparation, gigs, our own show and the day off, there is also the weeks worth of niggling fear to contend with and to be honest, I've had a good time here so far and although a bit physically drained, am pretty much as mentally prepared for comedy as I can be, coming off of two good shows yesterday. So I'm going to relax, do some improv games as preparation and try to enjoy every second of the experience later tonight. See you there?
