Tonight at 8:30, I will be opening up the competition for 25,000 dollars. From waht I can tell I will be the first contestant in this thing. I may or may not literally shit my pants. I tried to take a nap to feel better but I couldn’t stop thinking about the contest.

I don’t know how funny I am. I don’t know how funny the other contestants are. That uncertainty, that not knowing my chances is getting to me. If I know that I’m funnier than most of the people there, great, if I know that I’m not nearly as funny as most of hte people there, also good. At least I’ll know. I do know that I am going up against both amateurs and pros. So, if there’s a pro there tonight, my R will be handed to me. At least, I think it will. There will be 8 finalists. If I make it into the finals, I will have seven days until the finals on sunday. During that time I will be living in a hotel (:-D) and be given 50 dollars a day. That would be awesome.

I should concentrate on the good parts, I guess. The experience, and blah blah blah. But I want to win this thing. Arrrgghh, I’m just gonna spend some time getting ready then. Rearrange my jokes, etc.

  1. You’ll do fine.  Just imagine the audience sitting there stark naked.
     
    If you want a funny bear story for your act send me your email.  I’ll give you a true one from little Laurinburg.
