The Show Must Go On

I consider myself a performer. An entertainer. This is not just because I happen to do stand-up comedy and act in theater productions. I have always had this need to be noticed. I am certain psychiatrists have much to say about this “disorder.” Non-performers don’t understand. My mood is in direct correlation with my calendar of dates. More dates, better mood. Less dates, bad mood. No dates? It hasn’t happened in years, but I don’t even want to think about it. Let’s put it this way, I would finally be on TV, but the wrong shows and for the wrong reasons.

It doesn’t matter if there are 1,000 people or 12 in the crowd. I put on the same show with the same energy. I fool myself into thinking it’s for the audience, but it’s really for me. Another disorder? or just another facet of the same one.

I get excited on days when I have a show that night. Anticipation, excitement and happiness fills my body. I believe this is a great form of exercise that has yet to be discussed on daytime talk shows, ad nauseam. I honestly feel younger on show days.

Of course, afterwards, I sleep like a rock.

I am so happy I have this disorder.

To see my schedule on where I will be exhibiting this disorder, go to the “on stage” tab. Hope to see you at a show

    Good luck with your fun. I understand your “disorder” I’m funny, but not on demand. If I’m comfortable I’m funny. If I’m unsure, I’m unsure, and surely not funny! Do what you love, and stay young.
