I'm a Funny Lady
A little bit about me. I started standup comedy a lot later in life than most. It didn’t stem from a dare, being a drug addict or abused, nor was I from a dysfunctional family. Let’s say comedy became my outlet because in a short period of time my real estate business took a dive, I lost my parents and my son moved away. Depression seeped in; I had a lot of time on my hands. One day I decided to take care of my “procrastination list,” and start doing some of those things I always wanted to do.
Why wait until retirement. Why wait until I’m laying on my deathbed thinking, “I should’ve done this or could’ve done that.”
So I signed up for a comedy writing class. The teacher said, “After 8 weeks in this class you’ll be performing 5 minutes of standup comedy for your friends and families….and it will take at least 5 years to develop your persona on stage!” My soul started kicking and screaming “No way, I can’t perform in front of people! 5 years? I could be dead by then!” However, after writing jokes and making people laugh, I loved it. It was so out-of-the-box for me, going to open mics, comedy clubs, hanging out with other comics until late at night.
Since I started standup I’ve placed first in a few local competitions, as well as hosting shows at Cozzy’s Comedy Club in Newport News and other venues. Standup has opened up my world to performing on a cruise ship in Europe, clubs in L.A. and Florida, houses of worship, VFW’s and senior communities. I’ve been involved in improvisation, sketch comedy writing and acting classes. I was in the first cast of “Panties in a Twist,” a local sketch comedy show written, directed and acted by women.
Today I mainly enjoy making people laugh. I’m a newer grandma who loves joking about aging, rapping, marriage, family and social trends. Performing my comedy program for seniors retirement communities has become a passion of mine.
