I’m sorry I’ve gone so long without writing. That has mostly been due to the fact that I promised myself that this would be my next post and I have put that off for several reasons. I was unhappy with the autofocus on my camera. I was unhappy with how long the video wound up being…I wound up cutting out at least 10 minutes. I hated that I hadn’t memorized my jokes and read them from my phone. I was scared people would laugh for the wrong reasons or not at all. I finally got to the point tonight where I was able to rewatch it and feel okay about posting it because…fuck it! This an accurate representation of me reading these jokes for the first time and as uncomfortable as that is, it is also equal parts honest and vulnerable and that’s kind of the whole fucking point of this blog in the first place. It’s okay if it’s no good because it’s my first time writing jokes and reading them out loud. If I choose to continue doing this, I can make improvements in the future.
While I will probably never be able to control my anxiety enough to actually perform these jokes for an audience, I can share a video that made me almost as uncomfortable to record. For anyone who hasn’t learned by now the video is NFSFW…not fucking safe for work! If you’re related to me, you also probably won’t want to watch. Just a heads up. Proceed with caution. Without further ado, I present to you “The Time I Attempted Comedy”.
