I’m rehearsing for my Melbourne Fringe show under very joyful circumstances. For the first time, I have time to rehearse, I’m not preparing alone. I can feel my passion for comedy, surging through my veins again!
First of all, it’s the comedy comeback that the disaster that was 2020/2021 had me thinking I would never have.
Second of all, my spirit has been lifted by my PhD research talking to comedians who’ve recentered my energy and faith in what we do.
Thirdly, I have a Festival Hub venue that I am very excited about and very grateful to Melbourne Fringe for. I also have an amazing producer, director and marketing guru.
But here’s the big thing for me. At rehearsal yesterday, I LET GO! I mean I really stopped worrying about my #autistic stimming on stage and channeled that energy into my improv body.
Most people who’ve seen me at my best, which is in an improv capacity, know how funny my use of this is and I think I’ve nailed bringing all the forms of comedy I use together. So I feel great about bringing this to stage instead of me standing still so much because I wasn’t really letting go. It’s about time!
I feel more confident now, with more polish without losing #autistic me. Please share! I’m excited to bring you Gold Star Failure 🙂 https://melbournefringe.com.au/event/gold-star-failure/Tweet
