One Path of many choices


• “One Path of many choices” At this point in my entertainment career comedy is a good chunk of it. Been in entertainment for twenty plus years and about half that is in comedy. The art of stand up comedy is a difficult cut throat world as any field of entertainment is. The difference, you…

Managing


• “Managing” It is fun managing your time, money, and the people around you. Oh, and I also got signed to a management company for acting. That feeling to be doing things which progress my career in entertainment. Working hard to be “the best in the field” is one thing I have never really pushed…

Make up the rest


• Make up the rest I enjoy what I do and how I got there. When I do reflect, I realize there is a lot going on for this resilient entertainer. Setbacks are inevitable. They could come in shapes of cars breaking down, money not coming in, people falling short of their efforts. So much…

Whether this weather weathered me


• Whether this weather weathered me I could be one of those hundred people going off to colonize Mars. Insane. Never coming home. They are going to take a chance in their life to do something amazing. What am I doing? What are you doing!? We are trivial in the course of what is good…

Do you feel better now?


• Do you feel better now? 6 people are in a room and some person who calls themselves a comedian. Blasting in the background is noise radiating throughout the open mic night. You can smell beer on each individual’s soul. Their sadness only reflecting on a need to out wait whomever the performer is at…

Drunk on power


• Drunk on power  I made a vow when I was younger to stay clean of drugs, cigarettes, and drinking. I was younger than 10 years old, which made it all the more powerful to my soul. I saw people drunk all the time. Cigarettes smell is disgusting, unattractive, and just never made sense to me.…

Some is better than none


• Some is better than none “A little a day.” That’s what I told myself when I got into the swing of things. Entertainment is difficult. It is designed to keep the unmotivated out of the loop. Surfers are hard workers. Those individuals pushing through a strong ocean wave after being knocked out. Then dragged…

A hateful, yet supportive, environment known as entertainment


A hateful, yet supportive, environment known as entertainment Hate. There is one way NOT to start a thought. Oh, another way. Words like “no”, “not”, “hate”, “crappy”, “poopy”… okay, poopy is funny… the other words are in essence, negative. That’s our community of beginners. Do some people support one another? Of course, they do. They…

Macbeth – Stage-manger


Macbeth – Stage-manger; Saying the word “Macbeth” is considered bad luck. While I personally believe that superstition ain’t the way, I do believe that this is an opportunity to increase my skills, experience and level of involvement in theater. I was asked to perform one of the roles in Macbeth, the witch to be exact.…
