In spite of the uncertainties and calamities occurring all around us, I can’t help but feel more hopeful these days. Reports are coming in of more and more friends “getting good work.” and I know I’m getting more meetings lately… so hopeful signs are all around, if we look for them.
Included in those hopeful signs is the fact that I’ve booked some good shows for the coming months. I’ll be doing a reading at a show at VIDIOTS on March 20th, and those are always a riot. I’m also especially thrilled to have been invited back to do ‘Sit n Spin’ at the Comedy Central Stage at the Hudson on March 31. …and then in April I’m already booked to do a reading in the “My Bad” show at bang. All big fun for me. Click on my calendar (at the right –>) for full details on all the shows.
As predicted in my last post, 2011 has already proven to be a very different kind of year. I’m not alone in thinking that things have turned a corner (in a good way) both personally and professionally. So far in 2011 I have moved across town to a new, and infinitely better location, I have had more meetings than I had in all of 2010 and I’m basically feeling good and I’m eager to see what comes next.
I have also finally gotten invited back to do the Sit-n-Spin show at the Comedy Central Stage. Since they book months in advance, I don’t have an exact show date yet, but the new producers contacted me and approved one of my submissions. I am thrilled. It is a great show, run by great people, in a great theater. I know it might sound a bit ‘Hollywood-y’ to say that sort of stuff, but in this case it happens to be true.
In other news: I forgot to mention that Ask A Punk turned three years old back in January, a milestone for any blog. Ask A Punk and my LA Cartoon blogs are now both ‘top hits’ in google searches too. Is that really a big deal? I honestly don’t know, but I think it is pretty cool.
Onward people! Strange times call for action!
