You’ve met my friend Meghan before (here and here, for example). Last Wednesday Nick and I had the pleasure of seeing her on stage performing a comedy routine. I can’t tell you how happy I was for her, up there doing a bang up job and pursuing a dream.
We met 4 years ago at a place we both worked at the time, and become immediate friends bonding over our shared love of all things artistic. And as long as I’ve known her she has talked about her interest in creative writing and story telling. But it wasn’t until this summer that she told me about her desire to try stand-up comedy. And this is a girl who takes action and makes things happen, because here we were a few months later enjoying one of her first gigs.
It was held at a club called The Flying Beaver (on Parliament Street near College) and while the lighting was not great for picture taking, I’m posting the shots I took anyway because I just could not miss the chance to write about this happy event.
The show was called “Liar Liar” and the idea was for a group of performers to take a turn on stage, telling an outrageous story. Then the audience voted by a show of hands as to whether they believed the story to be true or not.
The whole thing was so well done, with hilarious story after hilarious story. And Meghan did such a good job of it not seeming to be nervous at all.
Thank you kindly for dropping over to see what we’ve been up to. I hope you’re having a decent Monday.
