As many of you know, I have been taking classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and performing comedy in New York for the last two years. I’ve stayed mostly quiet about this because, well, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with comedy. You guys all know me as the funnier half of Tracks Up The Tree (BECAUSE I AM THE FUNNIER ONE), but I haven’t really talked about my comedy on this site. Until now.
I’ve realized that comedy is one of the few things I really enjoy doing (other than needlework) and I have been purposefully avoiding talking about it. Partly because I have seen comedy as a hobby as way to pass the time between painful relationships, but also because I didn’t really know where my comedy fit into my life.
So the other evening, I realized that I want to talk a bit more about what I’ve been doing on this website. Talk about the projects I’m working on, write a bit more about what it’s like being a performer in New York, and let you all in on what I have been doing with my life for the past 2 years. In short, up the tree is going to be my weblog again. I will be posting more about my life and less about the stuff I never wrote about before. Sure I will talk about music and the podcast will continue with it’s same irregularity, but from now on Up The Tree is all about me – a performer, designer, and generally dreamy guy in New York.
