Susan’s Rant – Week
of August 1st
Takes a Village
I am leaving my heart, baggage and homophobia in San Francisco. Living in this
beautiful city for close to five years has been a great eye opening experience.
During the dot com boom, many people over populated San Francisco looking for
the fool’s gold of an IPO (initial public offering aka early retirement
fund before thirty).
Going from searching for fool’s gold to now being the fool/clown on stage
is what San Francisco will always mean to me. Being able to make people laugh
is the best feeling I have ever experience and will keep on doing. It’s
like having sex with a hundred people at one time. Fabulous!
I have been fortunate enough to be able to develop my comedy act in a very
supportive stand-up community in San Francisco. Yes, the entertainment industry
is competitive but I do believe that if you help enough people, you will help
yourself. Hillary Clinton was right that it does take a village to succeed.
My village also includes my great group of old and new friends who supported
me at my comedy shows and always give me positive encouragement. Luckily, the
village I have stretches from San Francisco to New York City. After much thought
and upcoming opportunities (stand-up comedy and special events…more details
to come), I will be relocating back to NYC in a few months. In September, I
will be hitting the road with my Singles Who Mingle™ program which is
the first event to offer stand-up comedy and match making services to singles.
This is bittersweet for me since there are so many great people I have met
in San Francisco and I love dearly.
