Selfies With Sleeping Audience Members.
I perform Stand-Up Comedy from time to time. It had been a while since I performed — or even have been out in public, for that matter.
A friend of mine had asked me to perform at the Speakeasy Comedy Lounge in Scottsdale, Arizona. There’s an 8 PM show, and a 10 PM show.
This gentleman was at the 10 PM show. During his set, the headliner saw that this guy was nodding off…and then, all of a sudden…just full-on asleep. Out cold.
His wife informed everyone that he had been golfing and drinking since 8 AM.
After the show — of course — we all took our turns taking photos, and selfies with the sleeping man.
Given the circumstances — we are all performing in the side room of a Mexican restaurant. For free. And this man was sleeping — for good reason — while we were up on stage already battling our self-esteem issues.
