Semi-Retired

Comedy & I are on a break.  It’s not you, it’s me.  I need to focus on this opportunity I’ve been given to go back to college to finish my bachelor’s to become a teacher or whatever.  Oh, I’ll still be hitting the stage occasionally.  Just not as much as I planned to.  You see, I was going to be on the road all summer.  That didn’t work out as planned though.  I don’t have the name recognition like my fellow comedians.  I’m a rare breed.  Even though I chose to try comedy almost 5 years ago, I have a hard time promoting myself.  It’s what we call “Indii-aanish” in Red Lake.  I think that means bashful.  Over these past 5 years, according to my wife, I “low ball” myself when I get asked for my price to perform.  I’m a terrible business/marketing man.  Though I’ve taken some classes on marketing & know how to do it, I just can’t.  But from now on, in order for me to take a break from my current mission, my rate has doubled.  What you paid me in the past has now doubled.  It’s still probably not what others in comedy charge, but I’m trying to put my foot down and own this comedy career I’ve tried to create.  I should also quit saying “Suck it, bitches!”
