Oh boy I've been writing a blog about being a woman in comedy for over a week now. I wanted to take my time because I want to make sure it says exactly what I want.
In the meantime I've been working by tooshie off. I have my book out to a few peeps. I am gearing up to do Minus 32 Million Words in Nantucket on Aug 30th. I'm headlining at Gotham Comedy Club Tomorrow night and much much more.
I was thinking this morning as I was listening to the song "Can't Get Next To You" about that line and the line "I build a castle from a single grain of sand" and how much my castle grew when I stopped trying to get so close to others.
I have no agent, no manager, no nuthin. I do all my work myself.
A few years back I decided to cut out the middle man. I was sick of wasting time trying to get someone to see my vision and do the work that I was totally capable of doing, but scared to do.
I met someone recently who worked for a BIG agency. They told me that they were totally addicted to drugs. They spent their entire day trying not get caught. I sat there and thought (a) I'm glad this person is not hurting themselves anymore and (b) I had a vision of me sitting on my couch thinking, Why haven't they called me? They hate me.
Time to put the big girl pants on.
