LAUGHTER

img_0414

i was told they’d been trying to get a picture of me smiling onstage for years. I appear to be actually laughing. not sure what it says about a comedian who rarely cracks a smile onstage. i think I smile internally. i’m not sure why I was smiling but it looks legitimate. i don’t think I smile enough in life. my mouth doesn’t really go into that curve that is needed to give the viewer the appearance that I’m laughing. but I will assure you, my eyes are smiling.

i’m not afraid to cry either. i seem to feel things when I watch the voice on TV. i like when someone sings a song and then gets a chair to turn. their whole life has come down to that moment. I also tend to tear up when i watch ice skating or when a girl gets cut from the dallas cowboy cheerleaders. that’s about it.

here’s the real big news for my readers today. i now can write some words and it will automatically come up on my homepage of this website. that means that i might start writing more. maybe a daily post is just what my brain needs. this can maybe start to feel like a newspaper. okay. let me check and see if it goes to the front. kirk fox out.

Also, thought of the day for my team. WHO WE ARE WHEN WE ARE ALONE, IS WHO WE NEED TO BE WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING. THEN YOU CAN SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT.

this came to me when thinking about standup comedy. my mission, and it might never be fulfilled completely, is to be the same guy onstage as I am off. seamless. just get up there and tell some jokes. talk about some things that are funny to me. don’t push to hard. don’t resort to tricks. just connect some words in a way that might evoke laughter. hey, the title of this post is laughter. maybe it was a sneaky full circle. sneaky implies trickery. maybe my brain is the trick and I’m along for the ride. more next time. fox out.
