Meghan Does a Stand Up Comedy Routine

Last Wednesday Nick and I had the pleasure of seeing our friend, Meghan, on stage performing a comedy routine. I can't tell you how happy I was for her, up there 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. Then this summer she told me about her desire to try stand-up comedy. Being a person who takes action, 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). While the lighting wasn't the best for picture taking, I'm posting these shots 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 telling a story. Then the audience was asked to vote, by a show of hands, on whether they believed the story to be true or not.

The whole thing was so well done, with a stream of hilarious stories. And Meghan did such a good job of it, not seeming to be nervous at all.

    that looks so fun! Live comedy is so much fun (as an audience member) but looks so tough to do (as a comedian!)

  3. Cee says:

    Wow. Huge congratulations to Meghan, stand-up comedy is one of those things that I think would be so nervewracking and she looks like an absolute natural. And even if she didn’t, she gets big points from me just for going for it!
    xox,

    Wow, I give anyone huge amounts of credit that can stand up and perform comedy in front of a crowd. I think I would wet my pants…ha! She sounds so talented and what a fun evening this looks to be! I’ve never seen live comedy before!
