A Commitment to Stage Time

I do standup comedy, partly as professional development for my job as a keynote speaker, but mostly because I love it. (There's nothing quite as intoxicating as standing onstage with a microphone making an entire room howl.)

Only love will make you hoof it downtown in a snowstorm, walk into a strange bar by yourself (as a woman, no less), descend a dark staircase in four-inch heels, and deliver jokes in front of strangers in a cavernous club.

At 11:30pm.

As the 12th comic.

For people half your age.

That was my latest open mic experience, and it taught me a lot about myself. I realized that I highly value becoming the best possible performer I can be (as a standup comic, improv artist, and keynote speaker) because of my commitment to the one thing we all MUST have to improve in any area: STAGE TIME.
