October 15, 2015 I will do my first standup comedy show

I’ve been sitting on this long enough. Some of you know I have been trying my hand at standup this year, I have posted a little about it along the way. I started at an open mic this January, and have been going to an open mic almost every Wednesday night ever since.

And now, October 15 from 7pm to 9pm, I will be giving a show at Stone Spiral in Maplewood, Missouri (not far fromdowntown St. Louis). It’s a lovely little jive with good drinks and food.

Do I feel ready? No.

Am I gonna bomb some jokes? Probably.

Am I gonna be awesome? You betcha.

Is it 3 days after my birthday? Yes.

Will it be the best birthday present to myself ever? Yes.

Will it be the worst birthday present to myself ever? Probably, because I’ll beat myself up over all the stuff that didn’t go well instead of focusing on the ones that did.

Am I excited? Yes.

If you are receiving/seeing this message, and think there is a chance you could make it to the show, let me know in the comments. I will be making an Event soon, and can send you an invite.

Oh, and there is no charge for the show. Though, I do get to put out a tip jar.

  1. Good for you! Rupture a spleen (which I think is the same as break a leg for actors…though I  may be wrong as anatomy disasters for good luck was never my strong suit)


  2. Congrats, Nathan! I’ll try to make it if I can. It’s a tight month for me, so it may be iffy…unless any of our mutual friends might want to carpool? I’ll know better that week.


  3. Brian Meeks as a long-time method actor, I hate (HATE) those stupid cliched things people say. You work with someone for months on a production, and all they have to say is, “Break a leg!” just before the performance. I always get really cynical with my fellow actors who do that. “Really? After all we’ve been through that’s all you have to say to me?”

    Amanda Mack I understand. You’ve been there for me in other ways, back with our writing group. Though, it would be cool seeing you or others there from the now defunct Writers Coven.
