first comic standing

In January I spouted off a lofty resolution of performing stand-up comedy before the year’s up and this Saturday, I’m actually going to do it.

So I know it’s a long shot. Only the first 100 people will be seen which means I’ll have to there early. This will not be on television (so no chance of my mother finding out…yet). There will most likely be crowds and a few crazies, but this is where it starts, right?

I figure that if I admit it here publicly like this, you’ll ask me later how it’s going and I’ll have to answer. This is why I’d hesitate to admit publicly that I’m on a diet because 1) who are we kidding and 2) that would call for some kind of will power. There’s a better chance of reuniting both Koreas than there is of me being restrained successfully from a plate of cupcakes. But I don’t have time to share with you the riveting tales of how I was owned by the 2 for $5 ice cream sale at Albertson’s. As much as I am worried about polished punchlines, my real question is why after giving birth, my feet have swollen to a size so big that South America has banned me for fear that my dinosaur footprints could clear out the rest of the rainforest.

    I think you’ll do great. It’s a no brainer. You’re gonna be the next Kathy Griffin…And maybe you’ll get to be the new co-host on The View?!? They need an ethnic person, cuz now it says “different women, from different backgrounds,” but they are all from the same background without Star Jones or Lisa Ling. Meredith Viera was at least Portuguese.

  5. Mona! Good luck! I know you’ll do fine. I hope we could see audition tapes. ;P

    That’s awesome!! You’re so hilarious. And pretty. Like, double duty comic stuff there! You’ll be famous. Just don’t forget us little people who supported you all along! šŸ˜‰

    I don’t like to annouce my dieting, either, though that’s what they suggest you do (for all the reasons we won’t do it!).
