the greats parts of learning comedy

The greatest bit of knowledge that I have learned thus far while pursuing a career in comedy is the importance of building relationships and networking. Getting to meet all these other comedians and being able to share such common ground with them is just mind blowing to me. So many comedians are making not just good moves, but great moves and for everyone that is watching and waiting to see something from me, well get ready because it’s my time and I’m creating something great for you all. The positive energy from these new relationships just makes me want to push forward that much harder with bigger and better moves and I can not wait to let all you see the stuff I have in the works. I really enjoy working on my jokes because they have a lot to do with my own experiences in my roller coaster type of life. Being able to put these experiences into jokes and being able to share them with you all for some laughter is just a blessing. It feels like it should be illegal to have this much fun and be working at the same time. In my life, I have been held down and this comedy is one thing that I feel in control of. I want to show you all that a hard working guy like me that grew up with nothing and had to do what it took to survive in a tough environment can make it in this big world and have a lot of fun doing it.



You ask how I got to this point or even if you did not, here it goes anyways. It is kind of a long story, but I think I can make it short. It all started in DC, grew up in an OK home with some, well, Ok people. I’ll save that for another post, but I always wanted to be a comedian. I can still hear my dad yelling at me that I would never be able to be one and that it was not a real job, “you can’t make money off of comedy”.

Well a few years later, me and my dad would have a falling out to say the least, stay tuned for that story. I decided to move to NY, started off in Harlem, NY and then moved to Long Island, NY. With this big move, I felt like my new life had just begun. My dad, well he didn’t know that I was not coming back to DC. I ran away to stay in NY, but now that I had moved, it was time to make big moves, I was 10, yes, big moves like going to school on long island.

Making friends was not a problem for me, but making good ones seemed to be my issue. I started to run with the wrong people, doing the wrong things, and acting in a way that was off the wall. I could literally see my self dying one day out in these streets with some of my so called friends. Then one day, I finally realized that I was letting my dream that I’d always wanted and that I was more then able to reach, get away from me.

That light bulb switch went off I guess you can say, so I started to clean up my act and focus on my main goal in life. Let it be known, this was not easy, but the best choice for me. I started to put great people around me, ones who had the same goals and wanted to do things with their lives. Third times the charm I guess, it was a new start and a new beginning.

After changing my ways, I found a great girlfriend, some one who would back me up and be my back bone, so that I would not back slide into the past. Before I knew it, my dream was coming true and I had started and now continue to live my dream of having a comedy career. This is just the first of many parts of my life.
