I remember when I was younger, I always hated New Years Eve. I thought it was the night all the "non-partiers" came out, drank too much and acted like lunatics. Of course, at that time, I essentially made a second career out of drinking too much and acted like a lunatic, so I am not sure why I was upset seeing it happen all at once. Because I partied so hard and so often, however, I was able to control myself and more often than not, I would avoid making big plans on New Years. I thought it was overrated.
When I was a musician and a band manager, I loved working on New Years because I felt like I was at least, being productive. As a comedian, I have have been lucky to find good paying work every year on New Years or at least, career growing work. I do look forward to the New Year and hope I am able to continue to grow my base and following while performing better shows and creating better content, incluing my new podcast WHY ARE YOU AWAKE, which I release on January 1st. You can find it on Youtube/paulfcomedy and wherever you listen to podcasts.
