The Challenge

Posted by annadreambig on January 2, 2017 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (3186)
I've challenged myself to write something, anything everyday while I am in Baltimore. It has not been going according to plan. I know what you're thinking. "A New Year's resolution, how original." You are almost correct in your cynicism. This is a resolution from 3 years ago. And I've been actively trying to get back to it the past 2 months. This is really a birthday gift to myself since I'm getting older and crustier in a few days. I can't help it if the New Year's holiday BS annually tries to ... Read Full Post »

I have no excuses for not keeping my own website updated. I have treated my baby like an unwanted stepchild, or more accurately like a forgotten Myspace page. Let me jump right into it and tell you the happenings. Last year, I took a 3 month leave of absence from my job in Syracuse and traveled around the country to perform and just live, except for the Confederate states (too scary) and the West coast (too far and I think there is a weight limit). I did it with very little money and I survived ... Read Full Post »

Ha Ha Hiatus

50 days since I started my comedy hiatus and I've only broken it a few times. Twice at an open mic that I used to run because I just couldn't stand by idly while comics drowned in their own insecurities in front of a live audience. I had to drown with them. But I learned my lesson. The host took a picture of me and posted it on social media with the quote, "I'm on hiatus." Yes, I'm a hypocrite. But really I'm an addict. I stopped doing it though. I just have to get there after they start so I...

Best. Compliment. Ever.

This isn't an opportunity to brag or anything like that. It's more like a statement of appreciation. I'm actually not that great of a comedian, especially because I will pass on opportunites that would probably get me further all the time. And a lot of times I care too much about the audience having a good time, and let that affect the decisions I make in my performance. But I'm years away from a professional career if I choose to go down that path, so I'm not so worried about the mistakes I'...

Women in Comedy Festival- Boston part one...

Wait, how does the line go? "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." Whatever, I don't like to read.

I went to the 5th annual Women in Comedy Festival in Boston. It was my second time attending the festival. It really kicked off out on the road, at a rest stop, with ketchup exploding in my face. That's when I knew. This time was going to be special. I guess I deserved it for falling far off the Weight Watchers' wagon. By the way, I spend a ...
