Thank you for reading my blog!!! I’ve been away, I apologize. I had an accident and have been on crutches and something wonderful called ‘Naproxen!!!’ I’m back though, still limping but better. More good news, my next ‘Stand Up Class’ begins Monday January 30th at Yuk Yuks in Century Casino. ( any questions on my class E MAIL please: email@example.com) What I’ve been teaching for 22 years really is the art and business of being ourselves. When I started performing Stand Up I thought there was a formula a metaphysical combination that once discovered I would open the Comedy vault and then hold all the secrets to Stand Up Comedy and the treasures Stand Up offered. Nope, no secret, just plain and simple hard work and the continual evolution of ourselves as entertainers in front of an audience!
BUT, when I look at all the lessons and pitfalls as well as growth spurts over the years and look at everything this ONE REVELATION really sticks with me. I was 2 people, the Paul that was terrified and excited unprepared and seat of your pants guy, his habits of putting things off and doing the same habitual things over and over always staying stuck. And another Paul, the one who knows I habitually need to passionately gather as much information on Stand Up and Craft as I can, be organized and have goals and steps to those goals as well as mining my secret self and my stories within me that reveal the UNIQUE ME the vulnerable Paul and take this template and keep sharpening my saw achieving the goals of this self. This is the creative self I would choose to feed.
What I do know from my thirty years of Touring and twenty two years of teaching Stand Up?: The creative courage we’er able to share from within determines what we attract and achieve. Being ourselves is the goal of my class the “SHOW and the BUSINESS” :SHOW: your material, your energy and emotion,passion and story! Feeding the laughter inside. BUSINESS: writing mechanics and craft, genre and rehearsing, feeding the student inside. These two things together will give my students the foundation to achieve what creativity is supposed to achieve: discovering our true limitless selves and in doing so the attracting the opportunity aligned to our authentic selves and allowing our humor to attract our audience through being ourselves and in doing so, revealing to others that being yourself and feeding that creates the life we’ve dreamed. Humor heals, it creates breaks down barriers and really works when it’s aligned with our hearts. Our humor reveals to others that their normal is normal and to get on out there and celebrate that!!!!
