Opinions are like assholes: I always have at least one

One nice thing about being broke is that you're already finished Christmas shopping before you've even started.

Do you enjoy my comedies? Well, this post is to let you know about my plans for the next year: Stand-up, stand-up, stand-up, name-brand bath salts ONLY!
After almost 14 years of telling joke onstage, I lucked out and have been given a residency at a show called MANIFESTO! produced by The Experiment and run by Mo Fathelbab and Tim Ellis at The People's Republic of Brooklyn. Every Tuesday from now (not Christmas Eve but EVERY week after that) until next November, I will be performing 8-10 minutes and THEN I will be recording my first stand-up album. This is a goal I've had my entire life and some truly awesome people are helping make this dream a reality.
I've been performing every week in a supportive room and the only thing I want to get is better: sharper, leaner (not literally!), more arms, spiffy, turgid, and a hat made out of a Mojito (a mahato).
I am headlining the New Year's Eve show at The People's Republic of Brooklyn and I am thrilled and excited and nervous and practicing so I can finally show off that I has a pretty serious case of the sillies. You can buy tickets HERE. I cannot wait to show off where I'm at and where I'm going with my writing/performing/crying in DENNY's washrooms.
I will be promoting the weekly show a lot more, as the room has become very special to me. The line-up every week is truly fantastic and every show has been a really fun time for audience and performer alike. Plus, aside from NYE, it's ALWAYS FREE and there's NO DRINK MINIMUM.
So if you're reading this, come out to a show sometime soon! ESPECIALLY if you think I'm funny online, I simply can't encourage you enough to see me perform live. Or if you live in NYC and have told yourself you're going to, do it!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

"Here's the idea." "Ok." "It's EXACTLY like a Sharknado, except this time.." "Yes?" "It's a Squidblizzard." *gets check for $20 million*

I keep trying to shake what my momma gave me but I'm realizing I'm going to have anxiety forever
