Have fun, be funny!
Whenever I head out to do a show, Holly (my wife) kisses me goodbye and says, “Have fun, be funny!” She says it to be encouraging. She supports me in this path, and when she attends one of my shows – she says it before I go on stage. She didn’t know that she was giving voice to kind of a vision or mission statement for what I do.
I’ve always been funny. The difference now is that it’s on purpose. I’m more comfortable on a stage in front of hundreds or thousands of people than I am one-on-one. I get excited (not nervous) about any opportunity to perform. Every show is fun to me, and I’ll never take for granted that I get to go be funny, and have fun.
