I tried.

To do stand-up.

I put pressure on myself.


Prepare more.

Get up there.

Success is tough in stand-up.

I had to forgive myself when I bombed.

I tried again.

I bombed again.

I spent time trying to get better.

So I'd bomb less.

I wrote more bits.

They all sucked except one.

One made my wife laugh.

I thought if she laughed then other people would like it.

A little less bomb and little more laughs.

It worked.

A little.

I started another bit.

It failed.

Then another one did.

And again.

My wife like this one a lot.

They laughed.

Successfully landed.

One successful joke today.

Just one.
