Thoughts On 2011

I know I was supposed to write about where I get my material from, but it dawned on me that today is new year’s eve, so I will save that post for the next one.  I want to take this opportunity to reflect on this year, at least from a comedy point of view, because the daily bitchings about my personal life I save for my other Facebook page  LOL

I want to thank everyone who came to watch my performances this year.  I know there aren’t many of you, and I couldn’t hear you laugh some of the time, but you should be patronizing me and laughing your asses off when I’m on stage…just sayin  🙂

It’s been a great time growing into this new challenge in my life, and once again proving people wrong.  There are still some who think I embarrass myself on stage and will ultimately fail, there are some who didn’t think I would be funny enough to pull off a 10 minute set and prove that I do belong, and there are some who support me and compliment me.  Of course, not everything that happens to Trevor Dean will be reported on here.  After a while you learn who you can talk to, who you can’t trust or 100% rely on, some people fake sincerity just so they can get ahead, and because I’m on the bottom right now there are some who treat me like the gum on their shoe.  I know who these people are, and they may, or may not know who they are.  It’s just like anywhere else I suppose, whether it be karaoke league, or a bunch of writers, or musicians getting together.  Performers of all stripes have an ego whether we choose to admit it or not.  The key is to be genuine to everyone that you come across, because the ass you kick today might be connected to the hand you have to kiss tomorrow, or something like that.

As I have stated before, I have no intentions of taking this pro and making it a full-time gig.  It’s not my desire to do that.  Right now, it’s a passion that I am wanting to improve on.  Besides, comics don’t make the greatest money to begin with, am I right fellas?

I want to be a part of the comedy festival in the spring.  That’s right, Trevor Dean being a part of the Great Plains Comedy Festival.  Do I want to headline it?  What are you, on crack!?  Of course not.  This upcoming year I will support the local comics more consistently and earn my way onto the stage.  Besides, you remember me telling you that I went to the last show of the festival last year, and some of the people on it?  Well, that made me think I could do it, because for someone who is still pretty green to this, I have the confidence and am comfortable onstage to do a good job and not embarrass myself with the deafening silence between jokes….at least by the spring I hope that feeling goes away for me  LOL

Again, I want to thank everyone for their support.  As to my critics, well, really……they can seriously disappear.  They haven’t supported me before, so I will work that much more diligently to prove that once again, your past doesn’t equal your future.  Yeah, that’s right family, I just said that.

All the best in 2012!  Stay safe!
