Well, I did it (and checked off my first 43 Things thing): I did stand-up.

After seven sessions in David Granirer‘s stand-up comedy class at Langara College, our small herd of apprentices gathered last night at Zesty Restaurant on Commercial Drive… and amigos, we killed. Photo to follow.

Many thanks to Alex, Alan, Antje, Laura, Erin, Karen and Scott for braving the words “first time any of us has done stand-up” and coming out to see us anyway. Congrats to my fellow newly-minted comedians Mike, Jim, Rocky, Chris, Lauren, Art and Darryl. And copious thanks to David for the course, the wisdom and the encouragement.
