my comedy debut

Here it is! If you weren’t able to make it to my debut at the Comedy Underground last night, enjoy:

The whole day I kept hoping that my voice would hold out because as you can hear, my vocal chords were shot. I was so nervous beforehand and I had to remember my jokes like this: paternity, IHOP, panty, chicken, naked doctor, deadliest catch–basically the thought cloud of my life.

I was so incredibly lucky to have many, many friends in the audience (Thanks Rebecca for filming!). It really made a difference to know my people were in the crowd and that even though I couldn’t see them, I could count on them to laugh at my jokes. Some people asked me if I am going to do it again, and I’m seriously considering it, though I would probably have to be pregnant every year for material.

I had an extremely tough act to follow because the guy before me just killed. When I got on stage I struggled with the microphone because I have no upper body strength and I forgot to put the stand behind me when I pulled the mic out and I scurried off stage before I could shake the hand of my teacher, Stu Stuart.

BUT IT WAS AWESOMETACULAR AMAZING! If you excuse me, I have to get off the computer. It’s hard to type with my gigantic balls in the way.
