Getting my funny onLast night I leapt into the unknown. In the form of a stand-up comedy routine, 8 other brave women and I took to the stage to test our mettle. In a nutshell, we rocked it. The crowd was rooting for us from the beginning. The majority of the packed house (about 100 strong) were friends and supporters with a few complete strangers sprinkled in. It was a night to remember – and already I want to do it again. For us brave souls who leapt, the last two weeks have had their ups and downs to say the least. We came together for the first time on May 20th for a 4-hour workshop lead by the brilliant Kristina Hall. A veteran comic with over 25 years experience both live and on TV, Kristina created a flagship program to help women step through fears, find our own unique expression and get our funny on. The level of power and accomplishment in the room did not lesson our shared anxiety. Would we be funny, would we remember, what if we froze, what if no one laughed and you could hear crickets???
