Well Nashville, actually.
I’m here in TN for a college show at Belmont University. It was big fun. Thanks so much for being awesome you guys! I’ve been to Nashville at least 3 or 4 times, but never had time in my schedule to see much of the city. So after the show, I asked the students to recommend a few places to check out… And so my journey began. How do you like my first cowboy hat?!? I think I may have enough footage/photos to put together a short video blog, so stay tuned… I promise there will be hilarity. And new vocabulary words…
You’re welcome in advance.

The whole deal with the entertainment portion of the NACA convention is that campus activity boards and their advisors from colleges all across the country come and watch bands, poets, comics, motivational speakers showcase and then they choose which acts they want to come and perform at their schools. There are several regional conventions in addition to the National. I was selected to perform as an individual showcase and I’m part of the NBC Diversity package as well. College dates are how a lot of comics fill their calendars — and pay their bills. So I was super grateful to be invited. It’s pretty competitive.

I didn't say it...
This is me and Michelle Buteau. Hilarious comic, super cool lady. Check her out… Michelle is a NACA pro. I was trying to learn the game thru osmosis… Continue reading →
