I sing Let It Go with my daughter ALL DAY EVERY DAY. While I love singing it because she loves it, the song holds a special meaning to me which makes me cry when I think about it.
I started out in the comedy industry when I was very young. Many comics work on their persona and jokes in small towns and move to a big city when their act is formed. Me, I moved to NYC when I was 17 and didn’t even know who I was as a person let alone a comedian. I acted immature in many situations but I was immature. I wasn’t even in my twenties. When people look at me many think of me as that 17 year old from Kansas with stars in her eyes. As time went by, I did grow up but I still acted very young because it was comfortable. I met my husband outside a comedy club and fell in love with him right then and there. We started doing shows together and made plans of opening up our own comedy club one day. We made lots of plans but didn’t act on them. We got married, had a baby, and four years in our marriage still hadn’t made any moves towards opening up our own club because well it’s scary.
Then on our fourth anniversary something snapped and we decided to go for it and now on April 1st we will be making our dream a reality and opening up our very own comedy club, The Comedians’ Club.
Part of me is so happy to finally be doing this but another part of me is stressed out and nervous. If I think about how much work we have to do, I get sick to my stomach. I also have a daughter to care for who is still at home most of the time. I have complete confidence that we will succeed but it’s still very overwhelming.
I know it sounds cheesy but when I get nervous about all the work in front of me I think about the lyrics from Let it Go and I instantly feel so much better. I start to get excited for April when I will finally “let it go” and live the dream my husband and I have been dreaming about for years. I know there will be bumps in the road but it will feel so good to finally be doing something we have been planning for so long.
So on April 1st get ready to watch the hubs and I let it go and open up a comedy club. To be continued….
