Amateur Night at The Apollo

Afternoon rehearsal

My name in lights! (My middle name is Coca Cola)

Backstage with Kim "Synclair from Living Single" Coles. In a 90s kind of world I'm glad I've got my girl.

Show time!

How did I do? Well, I did not place 1st, 2nd or 3rd by the audience vote, but I didn't get tap-danced off by The Executioner, C.P. Lacey either! Success!

What a fun night. Met a lot of cool people. Grew from the experience. Thank you Apollo!

And a HUGE thank you to the people who got me extra stage time so I could prepare for this performance:

A Mature Night

I have been invited to perform on A Mature Night at The Apollo. Obviously someone recognized how poised and level-headed I am when I tell jokes and decided that I am the epitome of maturity. I can't wait to play to all the other fellow mature adults (no doubt enjoying tea with scones and a side of Centrum Silver).

It's gonna be fun. More fun for the audience probably than the performer, as I have to maintain an air of maturity throughout my entire set.
