Last night I met the very funny (and controversial) comedian Jimmy Carr.
Humour is something everyone comes across on a daily basis and ever since I can remember I’ve always had a buzz about making other people laugh (even if I do fail spectacularly at time most attempts. Or injure myself; that happens quite a lot too.)
Jimmy Carr is renowned for sticking around after his gigs and interacting with all of the fans and last night was no different. It’s hard to think of people who don’t let fame change them, but Jimmy comes across as a true gentlemen, at least off stage if not on it.
Anyway, last night after getting his autograph I asked him how he got the confidence to stand up on a stage for the first time as a stand-up comedian. His answer?
I suppose it was quite obvious really, and simple. Just go for it. Give it a go because it’s better to have at least tried it than wishing you had.
I’ve always had ideas to go with, but I’ve always struggled with tying them up into proper stories which can be taken on to stage, then there’s the matter of plucking up the courage to try it out for the first time.
Rest assured, somewhere in the future I’ll be in a comedy club, national area near you, because I’m going for it.
