Is this real life?

September 14, 2015

As I sit here, I still can't believe the life I'm living. Over the last few weeks, I've made some serious strides in my comedy career. From rocking the Laugh Factory, to doing sold out shows at the Comedy Store. I've booked a few more road gigs for the upcoming months, and I also just landed my first showcase set at the Hollywood Improv. I feel like I'm creating material that is very unique to me, and it's very exciting for me. Here's where it gets good...

Over the last few weeks, I've been fortunate enough to be able to hang out with one of the biggest comedians of all time(I'm leaving out the persons name, because I'd like to respect their privacy). As I get to be around this person, on a social level, I have to stop and pinch myself, and ask myself, is this really happening? Am I really hanging out with one of my biggest influences? It's surreal, to not only meet one of your role models, but to actually spend time with them. I think about all the hard work I've put in, and how far I've come in my life, and I get really emotional. I get to hear this person tell stories of being on the road, and selling out arenas all over the country, and listen to the advice they give. And trust me, when a person like this gives advice, I LISTEN! Am I where I want to be, career wise? Of course not, far from it. In fact, when I am around people like this, I realize, I'm so far from where they are, and I really don't know if I'll ever be there, few people are. But what I do know, is I've been very fortunate, and maybe even lucky. I don't deny that at all, but with fortune and luck, there's usually hard work that's been done, and I've certainly done my fair share of hard work. This business is so full of rejection, there's actually more no, then yes at my level. So when great things happen, it feels so darn good. The good far outweighs the bad. I'm heading in to this week with a very high head. Let's do this!!
