40 is Funny: Funeral and Fundraiser

My dear friend, Scott Campbell, and I share a birth year, wedding year, several years of touring comedy, and we also share a weird sense of humour. Scott's B-Day is in April and I don't officially turn 40 until November 2nd, BUT, we had a party on June 22 nonetheless. In honour of our history and bond we wanted to celebrate our lives by throwing an epic party & comedy show that could not be done any other way than as a funeral.

From 7:45am - 3:45pm I emcee'd LeaderCast 2016 at the Highstreet Cinemas and heard a lot about visionary leadership from amazing speakers, teachers and business leaders. 

From 7:30pm - 10:00pm I participated and performed in the Fraser Valley Comedy 1 year anniversary show and I saw visionary leadership in action. YO TRIEU, a local coffee rep, has translated his love for comedy into a successful comedy scene and he has dragged me along for ride.

This post is the coupling with what I learned during the day, with what I have seen exemplified through working with YO this past year.

I have a few things that are my staple services:  Stand Up Comedy, Improv Comedy & Emcee'ing. Teaching and Speaking are my former career skills and are also creeping back into my regular routine and repertoire. BUT once a year, in the month of NOVEMBER, which is my favourite month because its my birthday month, I also get to play dress up and read stories to kids.  So, along with a school assembly, emceeing a couple of fundraisers, and telling some jokes, Clifford the Elf will also be making his 4th annual appearances.
