The first time I performed...


The first time I performed was open mic at “The Comic Strip”, the oldest stand-up comedy showcase club in New York.  When I hit the stage, to my surprise, in the front row, sat a co-worker whom I had a HUGE crush on.  She hadn’t told me that she was going to be there.  I started my set and I got some laughs.  But shortly afterwards, like a slow but powerful wave, I began to feel uneasy in the pit of my stomach and felt I was about to faint.  Abruptly I told the audience good night and left the stage.  The next memory I have is being outside the club and regaining consciousness.  A fellow open micer was staring at me.  I mumbled that I hadn’t eaten all day, had worked my day job and that I guess that my anxiety of performing for the first time got to me.  He looked at me like, “yeah, right…what drugs have you taken?”
