We're pretty much halfway through the comedy course now, only a month to go until the night itself (arggggggh)
The latest evening spent in a church hall was again fun and I learnt some more stuff, but it was in the pub afterwards that I found most interesting. 6 or 7 of us went for a pint and some of the people who I thought performed really well and were very funny were the ones saying they were totally rubbish and that they were terrified.
One lady had done a top 5 (our homework) that could pretty much be a full routine - I could genuinely imagine her standing in front of everyone saying it, yet once we were in the pub she was saying that she had no idea what she could do for her routine!!
I think that's what I've found most fascinating - more than anything it's only YOU that holds YOU back! Everyone can see that other people are funny, but when it comes to believing it in yourself, all your hang-ups come out and you don't see it.
So there, apologies this blog has been relatively serious - to make amends I'll finish it with a comedy word...erm...COLLYWOBBLE!
