Video – DBSA Chato Stewart Stand-Up For Mental Health 2010

When I was at the DBSA 2010 NATIONAL CONFERENCE I got to try for the  first time in my life, STAND-UP.  I was in Chicago “celebrating” the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance’s 25th year of peer support, and doing STAND-UP comedy to a crowd of 400 people!!!

I want to thank David Granirer from Stand-Up for Mental Health for giving me a chance to bomb.  I had 24 hours to write a set of jokes about living with mental health.  All the other students had a three month course that Dave does with them to work out their jokes. I hope to be taking that class, I sent in my application.

I kind of did it backwards.  I hope I can raise enough money to go to the DBSA 2011 NATIONAL CONFERENCE in Texas… I’m hoping they let me do this year’s DBSA comedy show at the conference so I have to crash the rehearsal and beg for a few minuets to do a set.  I will beg if I have too.

Well, here is my act… let me know what you think… but don’t be to harsh, it was my 1st you know.
