Embracing the Grind of Greatness

Greatness is found in the grind.

This month I am taking my first stand up comedy class. (EEEK!) While I have long incorporated humor into my professional keynote speaking, I had never taken the time to work solely on comedy writing and delivery.

Our first assignment was to choose one or two strong premises and jot down setups and punchlines for each. The jokes I wrote were really good. Strong. Funny.

But they weren’t hilarious.

And they didn’t let me showcase my physical comedy or characters.

They were just…good enough.

And I don’t do ‘good enough’.
