Don't be a Poo Head

Thanks, I Needed That

Written By: nikihart - Feb• 01•11

I needed a win.  I just didn’t know it until it happened.  Last Thursday, my new improv group Slayer! won Round 1 of the Prestige Improv Competition at Stand Up NY Comedy Club.  The winner was chosen by round of applause and we won by a landslide. 

In the few months since my last performance, I had somehow forgotten the wonderful feeling I get from the sound of applause.  When I’m on stage and I hear the sound of hands clappling and the “Whoots” and “Oh, yeahs”, I’m washed over with a sense of warmth and satisfaction.  My heart races and I can’t stop smiling.  It’s darn near close to euphoric!  And is, in fact, addicting.  It instills a confidence in me that I’m on the right path, that in some small way I’m fulfilling my destiny. 

So thank you to everyone who came out last night.  Not only for the win, but for helping me regain my confidence.

    I would like to express thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular circumstance. Just after looking out throughout the world wide web and getting notions which were not pleasant, I thought my life was over. Existing without the presence of approaches to the issues you have resolved by way of your article content is a crucial case, and those that would have badly affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your web blog. Your know-how and kindness in touching all the pieces was invaluable. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I can also now look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the professional and effective help. I will not think twice to propose your blog post to anyone who needs and wants direction about this subject.
