Well, this has been a year of many changes for me. I started trying to do stand-up comedy at the local club. It was awesome. And then, not anymore...
So that just completely changed.
Not only is my excitement for that... I'm disappointed. I couldn't continue that, but also I don't really feel very funny, like I could have spent three months [working] at half-time with writing jokes, and preparing for my grand debut when these clubs open again. No, there's nothing funny right now. No.
I'm not sure when I'm gonna be able to be funny again. I'm not sure when everything opens, I'm going to just go right back on the stage and manage that. But I'm hoping one day that I can return to it.
