From the comedy school's Standup workshop February to March, through Standup & Deliver by Logan Murray in May, till June 2011, containing not only what I wrote during my first standup comedy workshops, but also things from the first books read on the subject.
I got through three pages only yet, but already it is very interesting, to me. I will copy everything on the computer and at the same time think about not only what I wrote then but the distance traveled.
Two years ago, indeed, I went to the discovery of "comic" in me and with the intention of expanding my "comfort zone." I did expand it.
At the beginning of it, I cited dad who on his hospital bed, near death, told me: "take life less seriously, Julie."
Then, remembered (to give me courage or use) what my daughter answered me once, in the car driving me to the airport. I told him that "I worry how my face is full of traces of medical burnings" and she told me: "Do not worry, Mom. Nobody looks at you, really. All worried about how they all look. "
To this, I added two years ago in my notebook : "since I do almost looks in the mirror either. And when I do, I have a shock. Is it me? How is it possible someone so young at heart, mind, soul appear so?"
Then I added: "perhaps, they can see the five year old child through my eyes".
I have not used this since I awkwardly tried to explain it to my first workshop's at young men/boys, my colleagues in the Standup Workshop : they let me "die" with this material. Staring at me as to a strange animal.
Yes, it's true, it was the first and last time I "died" at a comedy gig.
However, it is only necessary to find "how to" turn it is, I could reuse it then.
And this is only from the first page!
There is a treasure of material not yet used waiting in this notebook and I hope to use them and revise them, turn the material in a way that can result in laugh.
