I wrote some lyrics. I sat down and purposefully tried to write the dumbest and worst lyrics for a song. Then I asked my friend David Hale (a truly wonderful man) if he could turn them into a beautiful song. I wanted him to treat it like it was serious. And he did. And it’s INCREDIBLE!
I want to share some things that have really influenced me.
My house show tour is in full swing. For the next few months I’m going to be performing nonstop in people’s living rooms. I’ll tell embarrassing stories from my life in hopes of getting everyone to do the same.
You know how in Super Smash Bros. if you play as Kirby you can swallow other characters in order to use their abilities? Here are some things I wish I could swallow to use their abilities while I’m doing house shows.
I’ve been doing stand-up for 8 years now. It’s taken me this long to feel like I’m starting to get the hang of it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m really proud of some of the stuff I did to get me here. But now I’m about to start this stand-up tour and for the first time I feel like I know what I’m doing.
What is this tour!?
It’s called the TELL A GOOD STORY tour. I’m going to travel around performing stand-up comedy in people’s living rooms. They’re house shows and they’re the coolest.
The shows are small and intimate. I tell a bunch of stories from my life and get people int audience telling their stories too. So if I talk about my first kiss I’ll ask if anyone else has an embarrassing first kiss story. And we go from there. Continue reading “Why do a house show tour?”
A while ago I posted a video about living in my van.
Some times I feel weird telling people what I do with my life because I feel like they’ll look down on me. Like I failed or screwed up and that’s how I ended up here. I know it’s not true but I can still feel insecure.
It reminds me of a blog I wrote 4 years ago when I was about to graduate from college. I was freaking out about my future and jealous of everyone else’s plans in life. This what I wrote:
I’m writing this as I sit in a Starbuck in Amarillo, TX. I’m on my way to Colorado for a weekend of performing and I stopped here to shower and use free wifi. Well, I showered at a Planet Fitness. Not at Starbucks. Although, I once bathed myself in a Starbucks sink. It was a long and sad process and I’m sure the rest of the day people could tell. I had the look of someone who spent the morning scooping water onto my naked body from a public bathroom sink. Why am I telling you this? I don’t know. I’m sorry.
