Last night I attended a party to honor my improv instructor, Terry Sand, and part of that whole experience was the opportunity to do some standup. Standup is very different than improv, it’s all about preparation, writing, timing, and the relative proportion of in-the-moment is far less (of course, any good performance of anything needs to be in-the-moment, IMHO, but I digress). I did about 8 minutes, it was really fun, I got a lot of laughs, and I got a good videotape of it to review and look at what worked the way I thought it would, and what worked differently.

I feel great today, having gone through this new experience!
