This has nothing to do about working out a tight 15. It has to do with proper etiquette when you attend a comedy club. I am writing this as my trip, may pilgrimage to see one of my favorite standup comedians is just around the corner.
My love of standup comedy started with Dennis Leary’s No Cure for Cancer. I don’t get a chance to see a lot of standup in a comedy club, but when I do, I’m a happy girl. Well, that’s until someone wants to take over the show or when someone gets too drunk. People can be jack-asses. The following is a list of rules to follow when at the comedy clubs.
1. Arrive early.
2. Take a potty break before the show starts.
3. Put your cell phone away. And I don’t just mean I’m your purse or pocket. I mean turn it off!!! The first three rules are to help prevent innocently interrupting the comedian during his or her set. Standup is hard enough for the professionals. Get there early, go pee, and keep your ass in the seat and your phone off.
4. Don’t try to record the set.
If you do this, you are a lowly POS. Don’t mess with their livelihood.
5. If you know the punchline to a joke, let the person at the mic say it. You need to shut the hell up.
6. Don’t over do it with the booze. A jackass is bad enough with the help from alcohol. Even if you are a fine upstanding person, you too can become a jackass.
7. Don’t be delicate. If they make fun of you political guy or gal, or if you get butt-hurt over a religious joke, keep it together. You can’t be sensitive at a comedy club. Lighten up and laugh.
I have a trip planned for Saturday to Nashville and it is a
No kids. No family. No toxic men that don’t want to commit and send nothing but mixed messages. Just me. I plan on taking tons of photos and doing a review of the hotel and the standup comic I’m seeing.
It’s been a while since blogging but I’m back. There have been sooo many changes with me. Not really. I’m still unable to find love and keep making the same mistakes with the same guy. Sigh
I did change my hair color so that’s new. I plan on blogging several times a day for right now. I find that it helped me and my writing. And I just enjoyed it.
I plan on covering just that, stuff I enjoy. Stuff that makes me happy and my new adventures. I’m also going to talk about my depression, my kiddos, being a single parent, living on a farm, cooking, dating, etc…
I’m glad to be back and I look forward to getting back to writing. Until next time…
It has been a looooooooong time since I have writing and for many reasons. Before I explain my absence, here is your Sunday Motivation…
Yes, I know it’s difficult. Yes, I know it’s uncomfortable. But just do it already.
“But, I love me the way that I am”. If you’re at a point in your life in which you are happy with you, super duper. I’m not talking to you, so sit down and keep smiling. I am talking to those that might not be in a good place. The ones struggling with depression and anxiety. Yes, you.
I was in a depression a few months ago. I knew what was wrong but I was doing abso-damn-lutely nothing to get out of it. I had lunch with a good friend of mind and she asked me about dating. I told her that lunch with her was the closest to dating. She forced me to download the Bumble app. So I did. She forced me to create a profile and start swiping. So, I did. She’s a dear friend and I highly susceptible to peer pressure.
I found a few guys and sent a few messages. Not too long after I started, I met someone who I decided to start dating ,,, in person. It has been great. I am actually writing this as we are returning from the beach!!! Awesome.
Will this relationship last. I don’t know. I hope so because I am head over heels for this guy. If it doesn’t, I’m not worried. I will survive, nay thrive.
I said all of that to say this. I didn’t find my way out of the depression I was in until I changed what was going on.
“But I can’t change.”
Bullshit. Sorry about the language, but I don’t accept that. There are great things out in the world for you. Be brave enough to get them.
