My story telling class at The Peoples Improv Theater or The Pit is in the books. My friend, Dana, recommended I take the class and after looking into it, I knew she was on to something. As a television journalist, I’ve been telling stories for a long time. However, as a journalist, I was reporting facts professionally with as little bias as possible. This, however, is just me telling you a story from my point of view and experience. It really sums up what this blog is about. Me giving you a look into my world through my lens – however off the wall it may be! And God knows some of it will seem off the wall at times.
After spending the last 8 weeks downtown on Monday nights, I recently performed my story in front of a live audience at The Pit on East 24th Street here in Manhattan. I was first up and took to the stage just as my nerves began to settle down! Check out the You Tube video below.
My instructors David Crabb and Michele Wallson were absolutely amazing. With their guidance and critiques during the classroom sessions, I quickly learned the basics of telling a story! Yes, there is a method to the madness.
I’ve got a boat load of material.
And I can’t wait to get back on a stage to tell another story!
Friends and family, consider yourself warned.
