The End Of A Decade!

I went to my first open mic on 4/20/2005. On 4/15/2016, I made my debut on the Tonight Show. 5 days before the end of 10 years telling jokes to strangers.

These past 10 years were filled with so much life, learning and love for a craft that could have not paid off. What kept me going was my own belief in myself. That’s really it. I just kept believing I could make people laugh and that I could keep getting better.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned from my Tonight Show experience was to believe that something was going to happen. To put in the hard work. To pull away the safety net. To be a good person to everyone that you can. To always share the life, the lessons and the love for your craft.

Every time I got a big break in the business, I was turned down by a lesser opportunity right before it.

Every time I thought “What am I doing? I just need anything. I’ll take anything.” Well, the better thing took patience and hard work.

My journey is not like yours. But I’ll say this. Don’t frustrate yourself. Don’t throw everything at the wall. Focus. Force yourself to get better than you are. Always shake hands and be kind.

Not everyone will like you but get them to the point where they have to acknowledge that you work hard. It’s your job to make non-believers into believers.

Everyone that supported me before, during, now and in the future, THANK YOU!! I spent 10 years getting to know so many of you and I truly appreciate everyone that pops up in my comments, takes pictures and lets me know I made them laugh.

That’s what you see when I’m laughing onstage. Seeing you in the audience enjoying yourselves makes me so giddy that I laugh. I guess in a weird way, I’m returning the love.

You guys are the best! Jimmy Fallon was the nicest and he was so welcoming. I don’t even know if I could have had more happiness during the whole thing. Maybe if we shot up in a glass elevator and floated around the city. Ha ha!!

Thank you everyone! You guys are the best. Let’s start off year 11 and see where it goes!
