Oh Canada

July 17, 2015

 As I sit here in my hotel room, here in Toronto, I'm quite giddy! You see, I just came to a foreign country, one I have never even been to before, and performed at each of their biggest comedy clubs, and I did pretty well. I'm not the most arrogant person(okay, maybe a liltte), but not when it comes to my comedy. As an artist, I'm always trying to improve, and I'm never content with where I'm at, and I'm probably my toughest critic, but I was very pleased with how these shows here turned out. I honestly had no idea what to expect from the crowds here, and I had no idea if they would understand what the hell I was even talking about. Truthfully, I was scared shitless to perform here. But that same fear, was precisely why I needed to do this. As Tim Grover says, '"Be comfortable being uncomfortable.' That is exactly what I hoped to do, by coming here. Sure I have a pretty good idea of what my material is, but that's in an entirely different country. Do Canadians even know what I'm talking about? I was terrified before the first show, but once that first joke hit, I knew I had them right where I wanted them. What an amazing feeling I have, knowing that I left my comfort zone of LA, and the shows I do there, to come to a new city, in a new country, and tell jokes, and have them hit just as hard as if I was in my home club back home. Making people laugh is one of the greatest feelings in the world, making them laugh when I'm on stage is an even greater feeling, making people laugh when I'm on stage, when I have no idea how they will take to me, is probably the greatest feeling. Knowing I can cross borders and cultures and still have my jokes be funny gives me a whole new confidence. And it also makes me reaffirm I'm doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. I'm pushing myself to go places I never thought I'd go, both with comedy and with life. I'm going after my dreams, and I'm living my dreams. I'm not even close to where I want to be, but I know I'm taking the right path. I can make people laugh in a different country. I can make anyone laugh, I'm a mother fucking comedian!
