As a person who performs stand-up comedy*, I’m always self-conscious about my stage presence. I figure that I just need to get up on stage as often as possible. But apparently, you can just train stage fright and embarrassment out of you. You know– provided you’re an unbelievably talent performer first. Fuckin’ Colbert… being amazing…
*I’m not calling myself a stand-up comedian without feeling like the biggest asshole.
I normally watch new episodes of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report when they air, but I missed two weeks since I was on vacation. As it turns out, on the August 16th episode of Colbert, I was given the greatest civilian honor of my life.
All it took was to donate $5 to a shady political action committee. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
P.S. I just noticed that this is the first time my actual name has gone up on the blog. What a way to go!
