I guess it's that time of year for me to come and update my blog. I'm so not good with this sort of thing. No wonder celebrities hire desperate college kids willing to take abuse to update their Twitters, Facebooks and blogs. Too much fukking work. Too much stuff to write, but having feelings of uncertainty about comedy. This is such an emotional roller coaster. I wish I were rich, then I could do comedy and not worry about being broke. Such is life...

Almost That Time!

I'm pretty pumped about doing my one woman show this Friday! I've performed Shondee Superstar before, but this at a completely different venue and it's for a festival.

I'm up working tonight, going over each story and trying to time it. Ugggggh, so frustrating.

I wonder if Whoopi felt the same way...

It's Been A While!

Sooooo, it's been a while since I blogged about anything. Over a year to be exact! So much has happened in a year. Almost too much to try and blog about in one shot. But let's just say the road to comedy gold is littered with pot holes and smooth pavement.

Working in entertainment, you better have some damn good self esteem. Otherwise, the constant rejection/frustration that performers have to go thru will have you crying in a blanket and eating snacks. Alone. All night.

Is it worth it?

That remains to be seen...

What's Behind Door #2 Monty?

Sorry I haven't updated the blog in a while. I've had a lot going on these past few weeks and really haven't felt like doing much of anything. Including stand up comedy.

Okay, this is what's going on;

When I first started doing comedy, it was supposed to be a fun hobby that got me out of the house to meet new friends. After doing this off and on for 2 years, I see that I could turn it into a career. The only thing is, I don't want to piss my 30s away chasing a dream that may never come true and hating myself for being such a dreamer.

I feel like those people on "Let's Make A Deal". I could take the $$ or I could pick what's behind door # 2. I'm just afraid that if I pick door #2, there may be a gang of live chickens and I go home mad as hell. With some fonky ass chickens. Years later talking about "You know I was Let's Make A Deal right? Yeah, I met Monty Hall, but all I got was some live buffalo wings."

How do I know that this is the right path for me? I guess if people knew the answer to that we wouldn't have so many people joining cults and listening to false "profits".

What's a girl to do?

What We Gotta Do

Even though things aren't the way I would like for them to be at times, I'm a G and G's do what we have to in order to survive...

Shondee Superstar: It's Really Going To Happen!

Hey y'all,

I am so excited about my new one woman show! Shondee Superstar has been a long time coming and I'm ready. I started working on my wardrobe (because you know I AM the glamour girl!) and getting everything all planned out. More details to follow in the next few days.

Special thanks to Chris Trew and Tami Nelson from The New Movement Theater for giving me an opportunity to put this show on! Visit their site to learn about all the great creative things they do here in Austin;

The Year Of Creating Opportunity!

2010 is the year of opportunity. I hear people from various aspects of entertainment talking about trying to get "put on" with so & so from this record company, film studio or comedy club. I've seen people wait and wait and nothing ever happens.

I'm sorry, but I don't have time for that shit. My time is valuable and the last thing I need is to be wasting it waiting for something that might jumpoff one day. Yeah having an "in" is great, but how many other people are waiting for that same hookup?

I believe putting in work and laying the foundation in the beginning is great, but I refuse to be worked like a 9 to 5 and not see any results. At what point do you feel like you are being pimped for your skills? These companies are working the dog shit out of their employees and paying them peanuts.

There is no honor is getting played.

2010 is the year of creating your own opportunities. Whether it's starting that new business you always dreamed of, or writing that book you've been meaning to write, etc.

Once this life is over, that's it. You don't get to come back and revise your plans.

Now get out there and make it happen!
