This Tuesday night, I will be sharing my testimony of life and my gratefulness for God. It will be held at Central United Methodist Church in Asheboro at 7pm. I didn’t have a severe spinal cord injury and then find Christ. My spirit survived that storm because of the foundation built on Him and His grace. I am not a model Christian nor do I claim to be. But I love God, people and life. I also make mistakes daily, sometimes more than four…I know, I know. God was introduced to me when I was five years old. The first time was with my K-4 teacher and her assistant and the second time, a few days later was with my mom. She asked me if I had asked Jesus into my heart, I said yes. She said, let’s do it again.
On November 6th, 2004, I was a senior in high school. Literally, it was a Saturday morning. I was taking the SAT for the first and very last time. While the clock struck there was a second, a tic like no other and I felt it. I felt that moment, my moms true self leaving this world. My mom battled colon cancer and fought every single day. She loved. I wish I could introduce you all to her. Her smile, her humility, her spirit, her embrace, her sense of humor, her silliness, her concern, her drive, her wisdom that was bestowed to her, her friendship, her love.
It will be nine years come this Wednesday.This Wednesday November 6th, I will be doing a comedy set at the Regulator Book Shop in Durham at 7pm. My mom was an elementary school teacher. So being around lots of books will be neat. I look forward to making complete strangers feel happiness. She was very smart and loved (loved) corny jokes. I may do my corniest set ever…..I love (love) and miss her daily…..
On Thursday, November 7th, I will be performing at the open mic at the Idiot Box Comedy Club in Greensboro. Every Thursday at 8pm, $4 will get you 4-5 minutes of stage time. I always try to do my best and to do something new AND try to make audiences feel joy.
On Friday, November 8th I will be participating in Round II A of the UCC (Ultimate Comics Challenge). It starts at 8pm. Get your tickets by clicking here. Less than a year ago, I predicted that I would win the 2013/14 UCC. Here is that link. The show might sell out so if you want to go, I’d get them online.
Do I believe that I can win this year? Yes, I think its possible.
Do I believe that there are some other super, mega talented comedians that could also win? Yes, without a doubt.
This competition is stacked and I am friends with many of them, most of them. I have literally cried from laughter from some of their performances. Its worth the $10.
On Saturday, November 9th….I think I’ll just sit around….thank you for letting me share with you.
love – laugh – live and dance. it’s fun.
