I am at the stage in my comedy career where I need to figure out the next steps. I have always been very ambitious with the various careers I had (music, law) , sometimes simultaneously, so leaving it all behind to pursue comedy full time pressures me to do something on a larger scale. When I started comedy, I had multiple expectations for what comedy what lead to and where comedy would take me.
Before COVID, I had some momentum with my SINGLES ONLY Podcast and stand up shows, starting a tour with a national touring comedian and having my podcast accepted into the prestigious SXSW festival. I was planning on moving to LA for part of the year to work on a few shows I created in hopes of getting picked up for network or cable while also doing sets at some of the comedy clubs I had been passed at (accepted into).
All of that went away and now I have rebuilt a new path that either has run its course or is about to take me to another level. I don’t have a manager or agent to direct me to work that can lead to opportunities I wish to pursue but I am hoping that the unique combination of my skill set and my background will take me there. I am really interested in creating a new show for television or digital media. If you have connections, hit me up! #careerchange #goals #formerlawyer #formermusician
