10th May 2012
Well the day is here! The first of the 10 weeks worth of comedy lessons begins today and I'm frankly....a bit scared!
So here's the deal: every Thursday me and about 10 others meet up in a church hall in deepest, darkest Tring. This group of misfits, odd balls and comedy wannabees meet to get trained by a comedy jedi master - Logan Murray (he's helped Rhod Gilbert and Greg Davies be funny).
At the end of the 10 weeks we have to do some actual, live stand-up around the pubs in Tring, and this is what scares me! I know you might have seen me on stage at the fireworks or at the Christmas Light switch-on but that's different, I don't know why but I find that much less scary than standing up and trying to be funny.
I'm fairly sure it probably won't be anywhere near as bad as I'm thinking - you can follow my progress on this blog over the next couple of months.
Finally, the last time I wrote this blog I said I was going to do a survey of how funny people think I am...I haven't done this yet! I don't want to find out the truth (not yet anyway!).
Wish me luck!!
