Wow, it's been a while since I updated this blog. Funny how it's one of the things I want to work on this year :) The end of the year comes with my birthday, my comedy anniversary and of course the New Year and it's a great time to reflect on what 2017 looked liked for my comedy-wise. A bunch of other comics have been posting their yearly retrosperctives so I thought I'd jump in on the fun.
Here's how I did in 2017 (comedy edition):
- Only wrote one pilot this year. And it didn't make it nearly as far as my last one.
- A bunch of festivals I didn't make it into.
- Never came up with a new reliable opener.
- Didn't write enough for my website.
- Recorded an hour at ImprovBoston and had to add a second date because my friends are awesome and sold out the first one.
- Got more Yes than Nos for comedy festivals for the first time.
- Helped run the Boston chapter of What a Joke: A national comedy fest supporting the ACLU(main props to Emily Winter and Jenn Welch)
- 170+ shows across 12 states (and Canada!).
- Started playing colleges.
- Laughing Liberally Boston is going strong (yay Srilatha Rajamani for being a PR machine).
- Headlined Comedy Night at The Shaskeen Pub!
- Comic In Residence at The Comedy Studio, the comedy club that made me the most nervous when I started.
- Learned its ok to ask for things you want instead of waiting to be magically picked for them.
- More things I'll probably secretly update this list with.
