#ThrowbackThursday – My First Standup Comedy Set

πŸŽ“ I graduated with a marketing degree & zero clues on what to do.

🀣 I enjoyed making people laugh.

πŸŽ₯ I loved movies & wanted to make them but thought it was a pipedream.

πŸ™ I loved writing creatively wanted to be an ad copywriter & make funny commercials.

❌ I got rejections at every single turn & couldn’t break into advertising.

πŸ”Ž I managed to find a way into the HR world through recruiting.

πŸ¦– I still wanted to be creative & attempt to “break in” to “Hollywood” but I was already a dinosaur at 23.

🎭 I enrolled in an acting class & learned how to slate, audition & create a scene.

🎀 I enrolled in a standup class & learned how to hone my comedy chops.

🎬 I got an acting agent to audition for professional roles.

✍️ I started a resume writing company.

🎞️ I landed my first gig on iCarly & continue to act today.

🀝 I landed my first client.

πŸ’΅ I’m not famous. I’m not rich. But I’m happy.

βœ… I took control of my destiny. I took control of my life.

⛰️ Never give up. It’s never too late.

πŸ₯‡ Also, here’s my first official standup comedy set from 2006 at the Cleveland Improv
