J.R's third Comedy Competition
Updated: Jun 28, 2020
On Sunday March 17, 2019 I had the amazing opportunity to be apart of my third comedy competition at being the funniest comic of the night. I did not win, but I still had a great time, and I even came so close to winning it. There was something different about this night. I was actually put at the end of the night, so It felt like in a way I was the headliner, you know the top guy.
I know one day in the future I will be a headliner because that is what I want to be in due time as a comedian. As for now I am just happy bringing joy to those who are out for a laugh. Being last you would think would make me happy, but it just give my butterflies a chance to turn into birds in my stomach. You know what they say about going on stage? “It is better to go sooner than later.” Only I say this probably.
As the night went on I found myself getting more excited as time went on. In the end I did my show, and got some pretty big laughs from the amazing people in attendance. It was Saint Patrick’s Day so the drinks were being drunk all night, and the audience was feeling quite tremendous.
I believe the point of this story is to just be thankful when you get a spot in any room as the goal is to make everyone smile, and even if you don’t win, you still did a great job at you being you on the bright stage.
