The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
erm... What!?
My sister and brother just recommended something that seems a little weird. And utterly scary. *gulp*

(08:23:15) Esther: Hey russ r u up?
(08:23:26) Zimzat: yep
(08:25:31) Esther: Hey I have an idea for you. Well actually Jonathan thought of it.
(08:25:49) Zimzat: Oh?
(08:27:47) Esther: He said after I told him our escapades of yesterday, And he was cracking up that you should consider doing.......stand up comedy.
(08:28:32) Esther: THey don't laugh and barely smile but every thing they(you) say is haliours the way you say it.
(08:29:52) Zimzat: o.O Remind me what I was doing?
(08:32:28) Esther: Ok. first you told how your driving test went., then about the lady telling everything you had done wrong "oh by the way u passed", then you repeated what I had said about mom and dad celebrating that I was gone "thats possible but any way" so nonchantly but hairlouse.
(08:34:03) Zimzat: .... Perhaps you should. Cause what I said wasn't that funny.
(08:34:22) Esther: And some other stuff like driving the van. Your like w-h-a-t-t-e-v--e-r--
(08:36:28) Esther: No you have the material and the face to go with it. And Jonathan said YOU. not me. anyway its just a suggestion. maybe some time you might watch a comedian and listen to the material they use. Its every day stuff. Its just the way you word it and say it. THat is you.
(08:36:46) Zimzat: ..... riiight
(08:37:18) Zimzat: And how in the heck would I get started as a comedian? Or what would I do? It's not like there's a major demand for comedians.
(08:41:37) Esther: YOu have no Idea how rare a GOOD comedian is. All you have to do is maybe watch some people that every one loves(take a pole) a get a feel for it. Then write some material down or go off the top of your head what ever works for you and make a video. Send that video to Apollo and places around town. YOu can us Jonathan, me and some select friends to try it out on first. Jonathan has a camera. so does the drama teacher he might even give you pointers too.
(08:42:06) Esther: Make some money for hour of talking and makeing people crack up!
(08:46:29) Zimzat: .... Actor != Comedian && Teacher != Comedian && Introverted != Comedian ....
(08:47:39) Esther: WHAT? It would be cool. It is just a suggestion. If you hate it=forget it.

Current Mood: complacent complacent
Current Music: Pokemon Advanced [the show]

You know. They may have something there. The worst that can happen is you find out it isn't for you, but you have been wanting money of your own, and that's something you could do fairly locally and stay in school. Might be something worth thinking about at least.

Yeah, but how would I get started in something like this? It's not like many people know of me or my humor.

Like your sister suggested, think up a short routine, make a video, and find out where to send it around. No harm trying. It could be a really good self-esteem thing.

No harm in trying. Just don't listen to your parents cuz whatever they have to say on the matter is retarded.

Btw, like the pic you used for this entry much more than the usual one. Cool ^^

Re: Hmm

I think you are completely right. Go for it.
