I have a stand-up show tonight. It’s part of a big gay stand-up showcase here in Chicago. I always get really bad butterflies before I go on. This isn’t a bad thing. It’s what the body does to get focused. The adrenaline rush, the hyperactivity. It helps you be a better performer out on the stage. I still don’t like it. Because it can consume me. I hope it gets easier as I get more experience performing.
Also, I signed up for beach volleyball today. So if you want to see me live with my shirt off, come out to Montrose Beach in late May to August every Friday evening to see me get my ass kicked on the sand.
