Ballin Thou!

I have been doing comedy for a year and a half now. Last night I got my first paid gig!
So this is how it went down.
There is this local pizza place/bar here in town and on Tuesdays they have comedy night, open mic night every week and at the end of the month they have a showcase where they have 3-4 comedians come in and do their stuff.

I showed up last week and performed a few jokes, and the owner loved me. Like he was really excited and told me he wants me to do one of the showcase shows. This month’s show (last night) one of the guys, who lives 2 hours away, couldn’t make it because of car issues. So I get a message from one of the other comedians asking if I could come down and do a set. Of course!

There was maybe 13 people in the audience but most of them were sitting at the bar being fools. At least they listened though. They had a band play first, some guys from New Mexico called The Pioneers of Latenight TV. They were really amazing. Then one of the comedians, who is also a musician, went up and performed. After they were done I went up and did my stuff, after me was Andrew, Michael and then Pauly Casillas (@PaulyPeligroso on twitter). I freaking opened for him! That was awesome, I mean I have performed on the same stage as him before during open mics but this was a showcase show!

The night went good, we got free food (I didn’t eat, I did have a soda though) and then we got paid $20. It was fun. This is why you never give up on doing things you love. It took a year and a half but finally! I’m getting there you guys!

I did try and record it because one of the other comics wanted to see it but is out of town, sadly my camera sucks and shuts off after 12 minutes. I had just put new batteries in it too

Seriously! This is so awesome.
No matter how long it takes never give up. If you want something bad enough you can get it

Group therapy isn’t doing anything for me. Yesterday a few of the other people talked about their suicide attempt, that was a trigger for me. I had the urge to self harm but I didn’t.

Later that night I went and saw a friend’s band perform. I hadn’t been to a show like that in years. I felt young.

I’m going to be starting a second job soon. I can pay off all my bills and save up some money

please do this for me. there are only 3 days left to vote.
