My friend Betty thinks I am funny. Well hells bells I think I am funny but not on my own. Betty thinks I should work on a stand-up routine but Betty is 80 I keep hoping she'll forget. But, she doesn't.
Betty wants me to do an open mike nite somewhere. HELLOOO. I need a straight man to do my routine off of. I am the friend that will put your foot in your mouth after you say something.
It is obviously something I have been thinking about. Betty got going with this early last summer. I don't think digging down and finding the courage to get on stage is my problem I think digging down and finding something I can do on my own is. Finding the funny is. I don't know that I can be funny by myself all alone on stage with people looking at me. How do I find what is so funny just me with no one to feed off? It is not like I can go to Stand Up School. OK I am sure I could but it is not like going to typing school so you can get a job typing.
I can't even write funny. Alright I do write funny but that has more to with bad English than with humor. Which as I recall was a pretty good group.
