Rachel, one of my students from my Applying Standup Comedy To Other Writing Forms class showed up Thursday for her first open mic ever. Destroyed. Every joke, bam bam bam like a pro.
Don't take my word for it, ask Mike Diesel and Carl LaBove. We were all pounding the tables in the back. Rachel's a natural standup comic, and I helped her take the first step onto the comedy stage. I have nothing left to prove to anyone. I made comedy better having been a part of it. I can die now.
