Reagan was shot, the A-Team was prime time, movies were $3.00 and Drive In’s were cheaper, Disco died, $3.35 was minimum wage, and when spanking your kids wasn’t a felony. (I should know I was on the receiving end of a lot of them)

A friend of mine dared me. “THANKS STACEY!!”
Now here’s my story:
(As brief as I can make it.)

I was 19 and a year out of high school, where I was a very shy, quiet kid. I was working at a local ice cream restaurant. I worked with a lot of my friends, and it allowed me to come out of my shell. This is where I met Stacey. We used to hang out for hours just talking. I could always make her laugh, and one night she mentioned that I should try being a comedian. I didn’t think much of it. Till a new employee came along who I call Babs. Her husband was a comedian at a local club. That was all Stacey needed to hear and dared me to do it. I accepted and gave myself 3 months to get ready. I used to practice my first material on Stacey over at her house, and Babs’s husband taught me some things about getting on stage. To get to the point, 3 months came and went, and it was time to go on stage. I was scared to death, but I got up and did it. The crowd was very nice to me, and it went very well. Not knowing anything, I thought every time would be like that. I was WRONG. The next two times on stage were sheer death. After that I stopped for months. I tried it one more time, and then quit for a year. To this day I think the club just let me go on because I brought a lot of friends with me.

Then in 1994 I met Jamie, a friend I met at the same restaurant. He would dare me to do it again. This was different, he said if I went on so would he. The date was April 1st 1994. Jamie went on stage first, he was scared just like I was the first time. While he did very well, it would be the last time he would ever go on. I realize now he did it just for me. Sadly, I haven’t seen Jamie in years so I hope he reads this one day. THANK YOU JAMIE!!! I will never be able to put into words how much what you did means to me. You got me started back in the career I am lucky to still be doing today. I hope life is as kind to you as it’s been to me.

To end this epic, I promised myself since that night I would go on stage every week until I learned how to be a comedian. It’s been fourteen years since then, and I’ve kept that promise. I’ve been on stage every week, and I’ve learned one thing. You never are finished learning how to be a comedian. It is a constant work in progress. I just hope I live up to the expectations of all the people who have helped me through the years, and everyone in the crowd who has seen me perform, and will see me in the future…
