Never felt this good before

Wiseacres, 4/1/04.  First time on stage in 5 months, first time since I emotionally disassembled onstage and cancelled all my gigs.

Since then, I've taken full ongoing responsibility for my emotional well-being and self-esteem. 

I was ready to say goodbye last night if I didn't feel performing was worth the trouble anymore.  The important thing was I wasn't dependent on the audience for any emotional need, because I hit the stage with my emotional needs fully met.

Stomped ass.  Got through less than 2/3 of my set for the laughing and applauding.  The wisdom I've been fortunate to receive from others is creating ecstatic outcomes onstage. 

Compared to the amount of attention and interest I used to command from audiences, I am Ming the Merciless, commanding them to dance with my hypno-ring.

They also enjoyed the bit about teaching cats to wrestle.

Televisual Orgasm Facilitators* who please me are eligible for a CD-ROM of this set, free shipping, no ads, no extra files, no foolin'.

basilwhite: Offered two gigs my first weekend back!!

Got offers from the Wiseacres owner and the guy who books the comics to open at Wolf Trap for Aretha Franklin etc.

The Wiseacres guy asked me to do a guest spot (10-15) at Riverside Grill in DC on Thur. night, but don't come out unless you plan to play hooky Fri. This is a "workout show" for me, so I'm not even posting it on the site. Call me! You have the magic number.

Amazing. I would fight for gigs and get nothing. Now that I don't use comedy for self-esteem I'm getting gigs without even trying. Allah Akbar.
