I used to do comedy gigs around the state while I was living here in the USA, but then I moved overseas to find new audiences which weren’t so familiar to me.
However, last night I got a gig request for a birthday party and I thought it would be fun to give it a shot and maybe make a little money while doing it.
I would have to do an hour set, which is quite a long set, but could make $500 in that amount of time. I’ve been repairing HVAC systems with my friend and it would take me three days of work to make that $500, a lot more time but a lot less stressful than standup comedy. I sent a message to the client and will wait to see if they bite, and then I need to decide if I really want to get back into doing road gigs while on vacation here. My air conditioning in my car broke down the other day so it would also be a hot ride to the gig. I would also need to find a sound system to use because I sold mine when I moved overseas. Maybe it is better to just do my work for the HVAC company while here to avoid the stress of performing. I play music too but standup comedy is a whole other level up when it comes to stress so I need to decide if I should do the gig. I am supposed to help my HVAC tech install a heat pump that day so I need to figure out my plan soon.
