My First Go At Stand-Up Comedy

So I mentioned before that I was going to take my first crack at trying stand up and that happened last night.  All the graduates of the class got up on stage and delivered what they had been working on for the last two months.  

It was a very exciting night for all of us--playing to over 100 people, including many family and friends.  Some of us were nervous, some of us remained cool--I was somewhere in the middle.  

So as requested by many that couldn't make it, I did record it and it is below for your perusing.  In rewatching it, I'm glad it went smoothly.  I feel there is much more work to do and I'm curious to see how I can further develop this bit and combine them with other bits I have been working on.  But for a first time attempt, I'll take it.  I felt largely comfortable up there and while I can go on in about a million ways to critique what I did, I'm content that I did it as effectively as I did, given that it was my first time.  

I have to say that the course was fantastic and I highly recommend taking it.  It was offered at North Shore Community College's Community Education program and taught my Amy Tee.  She did a yeoman's job in terms of keeping us on track, getting us organized, preparing the show, and putting up with us.  She also provided good tips and guidance about being on the show.  But most importantly, she worked with us constantly to improve our scripts.  

Just a heads up about the performance.  It does entail adult topics and it does have indecent language.  Don't say I didn't warn ya!  Without further meanderings, here it is for your entertainment!  Enjoy!
