Still here in Chicago “celebrating” the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance’s 25th year of peer support. It’s the last night of the conference. I have so much information. I’ve gone to so many lectures, breakout sessions and Key Note addresses – my brain is about to melt!
Last night, I went down to watch the David Granirer rehearsal for Stand-Up for mental health comedy night. Saw about 9 people getting ready for tonight’s performance. I wanted to participate but, the class was full. So, I asked if I could just watch. While I sat there, I started to write a few jokes down. Then as the rehearsal was ending, I asked Dave if I could do a set. For the first time ever, I got up behind the mic. My first 4 jokes bombed but the last 5 worked! To my surprise, David offered me a chance to do a set in tonight’s show… I will be doing about a 3 minute set to a crowed of about 250… Cool!
I’ll let you know how I did… I just hope my set doesn’t totally bomb!!! I only have a day to write the jokes and they are not my best. They are just what I have… DOH!
