7/12 Woweeeeee!

Can I just say I love Jen Kober. She's a nationally-known comedian and has been really kind to me. When I told her I was going to be in LA in September for the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, she booked me to work with her at the M Bar in Hollywood. Yep, me. Grandma Jer. Thrilled doesn't even begin to describe how I feel.

My friend, Debbie, is bringing a crowd of about 20, so that will make it even better.

My performance schedule actually looks good. I have "gigs." Oh god the anxiety has started. I'm not nervous performing, but this is a really good chance for me. I've never bombed (yet), so I shouldn't be anxious. But it's creeping in.

There's only one thing to combat it. That's PRACTICE! Knowing the material so well that I dream about it. Yep. I'm going to have to study hard.

And everything will be great. (And I will live happily ever after.)

I was just trying to convince myself, Cin. But if I convinced you too, then that's even better.

Beata said...

Mom, awesome news!!! I am so happy for you. I always knew you would become a celebrity one day! :-)

Jer said...

Aw, you are such a sweetie, Beatka. But there's no celebrity--just a fun opportunity. Love you.

anne frasier said...

oh my god, jer!!!

that is very cool.

Jer said...

Thanks, anne. I'm still way excited about this. Hope I calm down for a while--two months is a long time to maintain the adrenaline rush.

I'm sure you'll do great!! You certainly spend a lot of time on stage lately and with all of your practice, I'm sure performing has become second nature for you. It's like you're second home!! Can't wait to read about all of your adventures!

Jer said...

Thanks so much, Kelly. With all that's going on in your life, I'm happy you find time to read my blog. I sure read yours religiously, and laugh at the antics of your three boys. Or should I say four? :)

Joe said...

Jer good luck. If you forget your lines just talk about me and how (fill in the blank) I am.

And OK I will say it. I am proud of you.

Jer said...

Thanks, Joe. That means a lot coming from one of the five people in the world who are genetically inclined to make fun of me all the time.

Joe said...

Oh and I forgot to say I love
Suzy Kolber

google her if you don't know

Jer said...

So I did just look her up (after talking to you). I can see why you love her--a woman who knows sports! What's not to love.

Jer said...

Joe, did you see there's a blog called Kissing Suzy Kolber? Funny, huh?
