Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great joy that I can announce that at least this week , I am not as big of an asshole.
I have, after almost 2 1/2 years, found my Improv Performance bliss. It’s neither in improv or performance. It is in directing and choreographing.
This feeling, which I knew, I believe, I trusted was part of the process and was lurking around the Chicago comedy scene is mine. I cannot describe how much better it is to feel it than to try to feel it.
This is how it feels to trust myself … exactly the same way it felt when I was teaching (actually teaching, not all the not-teaching stuff that started to consume the job the last two years.) Confident in my ability to deal with the unexpected. Prepared and prepared for anything I wasn’t prepared for. Joyous in seeing others succeed and gain confidence and have fun in the process. Like I was on an exciting path.
Now I can look from the outside and guiltlessly go to shows of people I respect and like and watch. And learn. And enjoy.
I can’t wait to get back to work on this.
I can’t wait to continue with my own Project…
