I performed 40 live stand up shows in the last 30 days and traveled to seven different states. People ask if that is exhausting and, if I am being honest, the answer is yes, it wears me down. To be fair, my performances are usually only 20-45 minutes for the night, sometimes 2-3 times in one night. The performance itself is not exhausting so much as the promotion, booking, social media, reviewing clips, flights, ride shares, hotels and of course, writing.
There are definitely times where I am too exhausted to perform or don't feel like I am in the right frame of mind to make people laugh but 99% of the time, once I get on stage, all of that disappears and I am back on stage. I do need more days off, however and am working on that! #stage #standupcomedy #careerchange #chicagolawyer
