Here's a little background, because I know how the internet can be unfortunately when it comes to people making generic assumptions (a lot like high school actually, which is why I hated mine but I digress). I'm turning 26 in a week...not old right? Yet I feel like I'm about 60 right now. I perform as a stand up comedian (and have for 3 years), I act, write, and sing here and there I have a job that's like a lot of other jobs (normal; punch in, punch out, go home and repeat). I guess it's nice to have something to go to at all in our economy (but then again everybody says that). Like most kids growing up, my mother always told me I was special. That took on different meaning for me though living in shelters, motels, and low income housing most of my life. Dropped out of high school when I was 16 to be home schooled, got my ged at 18 and took the sat's (my choice) when I decided I may try college. Got my bachelors degree 4 years later at 22 and graduated with honors, worked 3 jobs, took care of my mom while she died from brain cancer, etc. I'm a lifetime tv movie! I ended up getting a job straight out of college as a contractor for the government (office job) and left that when my boss and I became friends and he convinced me I should follow my dream and get out of my home state of oklahoma (Connecticut) and move to NYC where my favorite teams are and where I always wanted to live and make it in comedy. Now, I'm not some guy who just thought it'd be "cool" to do comedy. I live for it. My first time on stage I was 12 in a little talent show in 6th grade in front of 200 people. I wasn't shy or nervous. I've loved it ever sense. Singing? I won a contest in college my senior year and beat out 30 other contestants in front of my entire campus for a once a year competition (and I also recently performed at Dobb's here in Philly a few times where I live currently). Acting? I've been in a short film, and filmed a couple other small things. My coolest experience ever though was last comic standing in 2010 when I made it to the tv judges and Greg Giraldo told me he liked where I was going with some of my stuff I just needed more experience "kid." That was awesome for me :) I was a few months into it at the time. My problem now is that I moved from NYC because I had money problems and parking tickets, moved to Philly with a friend 3 years ago and I've been here since. I had a slight drinking problem and got over that, slept with a bunch of women, went from job to job (mostly bars and restaurants). Now? I've got a steady full time job, full benefits, and I've been here for 2 years at this job. Yet I'm still miserable. That's where chasing my dream comes in. I've had club owners, audience members, and professional comics/musicians/actors tell me I was good at all three things. I've gotten great reactions in comedy at the Laff House in Philly in front of 90 people, and I've gotten the audience to cheer me a number of times ever time I sing. Yet I still can't LEAVE and move out. I came to Philly because I needed to stabilize my life, and get my s*it together, I did that. Now I'm still miserable and depressed. Sometimes I tell myself "maybe I don't want to be famous" then I go right back and remind myself "but I love to perform and I would like to be on TV." I think it's honestly a case of me being so afraid of failure that I can't seem to shake it. I overcame so much just to be able to sit here at my desk and type this very "essay" for the world to read. To put it bluntly, I know I need to help myself; and only I can answer these questions. But I've always believed that you have a certain age period where you're still rebellious enough to believe anything is possible. I know I wouldn't be happy in a 9-5 world the rest of my life. I don't think that I'm better than anyone, I just know I feel happy when I'm on a stage or in front of a camera. Many people have suggested I just keep to my current plan of saving about 10 grand, getting in my car at the end of my lease next year and just GO to the west coast for 2 years. I know comics out there who said they'd help guide me in the right direction. They're not big names, but they have connections. I also am honest with myself, I need to get a lot better at comedy. I don't even get paid to do it yet and that's because honestly, I haven't done it enough where I deserve it! I often wonder if the reason I am this way is because of what I went through and a fear that I overcame so much, am I sabotaging my future? Or in reality am I sabotaging my true love, my dreams? I know I need to GO...and if no one had ever told me I had talent I wouldn't care, I'm depressed enough as it is. I guess maybe I just need to believe in myself a little more
Many people want to be highly paid and/or lauded performers, few achieve that goal. No one can tell you if you are good enough. As Henry Ford reportedly said, whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right. I'm now watching an HBO documentary about independent film makers (Kingdom Come), there was talk about nervous breakdowns and bankruptcy. And one said something like: its better to be a spectacular failure than someone who gives up. Personally, I can think of nothing more ridiculous as a way of life than being an attention whore (i.e., actor, comedian, "performer"). But, I watch them all the time. If it has value to you, then it is valuable. If we were all the same, I assume we'd still be hunter-gatherers. Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the nonpharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives momentary pleasure and separates the victim from reality. John W. Gardner No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. Buddha A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. Marcus Aurelius (A.D. 161-180) The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven. John Milton, Paradise Lost, Chapter 1 (1667) Success is not a good teacher. It seduces very smart people into thinking they can't fail. Bill Gates Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail. Ralph Waldo Emerson Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race. Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933) Perseverance is more prevailing than violence, and that many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little. Assiduity and persistence are irresistible, and in time overthrow and destroy the greatest powers whatever. Time being the favorable friend and assistant of those who use their judgment to await his occasions, and the destructive enemy of those who are unreasonably urging and pressing forward. Sertorius (legendary, died 72 BCE) by Plutarch (Written 75 CE)
