I just did my first ever stand up comedy set at an open mike and I didn't bomb. People laughed and I am in shock. It's not like I had 'em rolling in the aisles. I didn't "kill" but no one booed me off the stage or heckled me. Why do I feel so freaked out now? I thought the first time was supposed to hurt. Of course, it only lasted a few minutes, ended suddenly and I had this hollow feeling of "was that it?" Before I could even ask if it was in yet, I was on stage. Trying not to shake. Somehow skipping over half my material and then there was applause. Meanwhile internally I'm shaking and thinking, "fuck, no one likes me. Everyone hates me. Theyr'e all not going to laugh at you. All 7 people in this shit hole are not going to laugh at you. They're laughing at me. Or are they laughing with me? Okay... I'm not laughing. I'm feeling like puking. Why did I have that cup of coffee. Oh my god. My notes are illegible... Where was I going with that joke about wanting to fuck Simon Cowell? No where. Shit I skipped over the bit about how I like being codependent because it makes you happy...

Well, I popped my cherry.

Good enough.

Cheers.
