On Stage Next Week in the Ice Cold Air Kava Bar

I used to be so scared of speaking in public that I would skip class when it came time for me to speak in front of class in my public speaking course in college.

I decided that I didn’t want that fear to control me so I took a course in standup comedy and conquered the fear.

I am doing a set at a club next week, which runs their air conditioning way too much, and I feel a tinge of nervousness about doing so. I haven’t been on stage in a month or so but these nerves I feel will actually help me perform better when I am on stage. I remember they have their smart thermostat always set to 65F so people stay awake during the shows. We found out in comedy shows that it is better for the crowd to have the room a bit colder than warmer. I am going to just tell some stories about life overseas and maybe some family stories, along with a little bit of motivational speaking to leave them with something besides laughs. I’m going to ask the owner if he could turn off the air conditioning while I perform because last time I was there the air conditioning made me sick for a week after performing there. I like having the room cold when I perform because I can get really heated up on stage with the adrenaline and my physicality but when it is too cold it kind of distracts me from my performance. It will be a fun time in the end I’m sure. Do that which scares you.
