I may have been a stand-up comedian in a past life

Guys. GUYS.

I recently returned from the beautiful Dayton Riviera, where I embraced the joys of life and love and humor with my writing tribe at the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop. I have A LOT to say about this conference and the magic that happens there, but first, I thought it would be fun to share my performance in the Saturday night stand-up show, in which I discussed our wedding, my light-up skirt (which I wore on the first night of the conference), and a few tidbits about my relationship with Brian. I was just as nervous as that one time I read the story of my first period at a different writing conference, and it was just as exciting.

Well, without further ado, here’s the video!

 

  Of course, I left my notes on stage. Of course I did. But I didn’t need to look at them once!

Have you ever done stand-up comedy or performed? Tell me about it in the comments.

  1. Bwahaha. You are seriously AMAZEBALLS (shaddap, it had to be used). Your comedic timing is spot on and because of that I laughed my ass off.

    I have performed in public (bad karaoke and choir in high school) and I pretty much sucked. Oh well. Live and learn!

  2. This was great! The closest I get to standup is squeezing a ton of snark into my 90 minute presentations to my fellow industry professionals. Three minutes in I always suddenly realize everyone is looking at me and I freak out inside.

    PS: the only reason my husband is [mostly] safe from being fodder for my writing is because kids.

  3. Ha! This was awesome – and looked like a great time for you!!
    I had been told a few times in my life that I’d make a great stand-up comedian, but I have never agreed with that and probably don’t have the nerve to try it out. Having said that, I would be game to taking improv classes. Who knows?
