April was a busy busy month with 40 shows in Orlando, St. Pete Florida, Las Vegas, Reno, Saugatuck Michigan and, my home, Chicago. I headlined some new clubs which were so fun and got to return to Laugh Factory in Reno and Las Vegas to open the shows there. Also, I broke my prior record with t-shirt sales, selling over 100 of my "Better Call Paul" shirts with all the profits going to Parkinson's Foundation! My May looks busy as well, traveling a bunch and I hope to get some more writing opportunities for television and streaming platforms. Everyday I'm hustlin'.
While I am staying busy, its hard not to feel stagnant. There has been little to no movement on pitches I submitted and many clubs have not returned my emails for possible dates. I try to grind and work hard, but its hard not to feel overlooked and disrespected when opportunities don't go my way. My hope for the summer months is that I keep traveling for shows and can find some breaks where people can see my talent and give me an opportunity. #careerchange #hustleandgrind #hustle #standupcomedy
