I literally just got done with my very first Parlour show! The show ended about an hour ago. I had only done kid's show before today, and I can't even begin to tell you how nervous I was all morning. Almost all of the material was new for me, well, new as in never performed in front of an actual audience. I knew how to perform the stuff, I just had not had the opportunity to use much of it for real spectators.

There were about 25 people, not a big crowd, but bigger than most of the kid's show I had done. It was at a Senior Center and I did the show for free, because I knew it could bomb.

I am very proud to say that I am on a high right now, from an awesome show! Nothing really went too wrong, and the audience was laughing much more than I anticipated (it was almost all comedy magic). Some of my own routines went over really well. After the show was over, the Director said to me"we've had a few different guys do shows here, and you were the best". Wow, that was an awesome thing to hear from her! She wants me to do more shows for them, such as their Halloween and Christmas shows.

I am on a natural performance high!!! WEEEEEE!!
