I get daily emails from Tut.com, I don’t always get the chance to read them, but sometimes they are perfectly timed with what I need to read first thing in the morning. This mornings email read:
Lesley, you know when you visualize something every day, to such a degree that you can literally taste its reality? And believe in the likelihood of its manifestation with all your heart and soul? And as often as you think of it, in at least some small way, you prepare for its arrival? Yet still absolutely nothing happens? Right! That’s impossible. -The Universe
Alright, cool! That means, essentially, hard work pays off and if you manifest energy, it’s going to create a result. I’ve been chipping away at getting to this point for a while, and even though I haven’t shared all of my stories with you, the last few years have been nothing less than a challenge. I’ve been working hard to overcome life’s challenges as they come – thank goodness for comedy, friends, family and my therapist! (in no particular order)
Yesterday was truly one of the best days, if not the best day of 2017. It didn’t start out that way, I honestly woke up and checked Twitter and Facebook, and I seriously had a thought that it might be the day the world explodes. Then, I went to work and things seemed to be less negative, which was a relief, but good grief it’s a weird time right now. At least we have comedy, otherwise, eek!
Long story short, I had a LOT of things to do yesterday. I was asked to be on the Mike Kara Radio Show, The Central Florida Buzz, which was a lot of fun and I enjoyed being interviewed – I’d like to go back and record another episode when I have more experience in comedy. That episode should be released soon and I’ll post a link. He’s interviewed lots of people, he’s been doing episodes for years, check out his site and you might see some episodes with guest names you recognize. I like it when people are doing good work.
Then, I went to meet with Jeanna over at Broken Cauldron Brewery, and we discussed the “girls beer” we’re going to make together, which is totally freaking exciting. We also discussed some other plans that I’ll get to in a second.
After all that, I headed down to Sanford and did a Tumbleweeds show at Celery City Brewing hosted by Ross McCoy, and WOW! What a fun time. That place is very neat and the outside patio was perfect for a comedy showcase. Everyone did a really great job and the crowd was large and intently listening. It was probably the largest group of people that I’ve done comedy for. I tried a new opener and it really worked with the crowd, people were definitely into it. Damn, I needed a great night like that. I had 10 people come out specifically to see comedy because I was on the show, which is absolutely shocking and amazing to me. I appreciate it very much, you have no idea how good that feels. After the show we ended up going back to a friends house and had some of the best conversation I’ve had in a while. Life is good. My life isn’t perfect or all put together, but it sure is coming together.
Alright, there’s something else.
I’m ready to share an update on that big thing I was telling you about.
I’ll have more info on the line up and will post an event flyer up soon, please save the date for 9/14/2017 and support local comedy. It’s right near the new soccer stadium and there’s ample free parking. This months showcase beer is going to be really awesome, I think we’re making it a Samoan September, Jeanna is in charge of the beer. We’re also working on a beer for October, because that’s my birthday month and ooooh goodie I’m looking forward to brewing that beer WITH HER OMG.
There’s so much work to do, many more shows and open mics between now and then. If you want to head to Bull & Bush tomorrow night, I’ll be doing a set and the line up is really great, you won’t want to miss this show. Also, spoiler alert, Duncan has been requested to be a part of my set, so if you like pub dog and/or Duncan you should definitely come out. It’s free, and I’ll do my best to make you laugh.
Alright, thanks for keeping up with me and I am going to be sharing more updates soon.
Have a great and safe Friday/Weekend!
