  • Dare #2: Perform a stand up comedy routine

    Posted on April 15th, 2012 Sonia No comments

    The Dare:  To perform a stand up comedy routine on amateur night at Absolute Comedy.

    The Darer:  Naima S.

    Current Status:  Accepted, not yet performed.

    The Details:  I have to admit, this dare is brilliant.  Evil but brilliant.  As soon as Naima dared me (at my birthday brunch) I felt the anxiety building up.  Let me be clear – I am not a comedian, nor have I ever dreamt to be a comedian.  I don’t write jokes in my spare time, I don’t even tell jokes…I just laugh at them.  So this dare is not a well-meaning push for an artist to finally share his craft in front of a supportive audience.  No – this dare is designed to just embarass me, surrounded by a heckling audience of friends lol.  Will it push me out of my comfort zone?  Yes.  Does it abide by my dare rules?  Yes.  So I guess I have to do it…..  Am I happy about it?  I’m amused and scared sh*tless.   

    I have to perform in June….I guess it’s time to start buying Idiot Guide Books on ‘How to be a Stand Up Comic”.
