Finding the Funny in Triathlon

After a stilted attempt in 2010, I’ve been wanting to try comedy for a while now. And the amazing woman of Fatch – The Fat Sketch Comedy Group let me be a guest on their (sold out!) show New Year, Same You at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade theater. I decided to use the opportunity to find the funny in being a fat athlete and a triathlete in general.

Here is my Comedy Coming Out, I hope you enjoy it! The first part is about the trials of being a fathlete, and then I talk about triathlon specifically.

If you want to be on the mailing list for my comedy stuff (of which, hopefully, there will be lots more) you can click here! If you want all the background to this performance, you can find it here!

Thank you so much to Nikki Bailey for a tremendous amount of help and advice about comedy, Kathy Deitch for plucking me from a little panel discussion to be on her show and all the support since, to the women of Fatch, Rodney their director, his husband James, and Cara and DJ who were all really kind and supportive, to Julianne who did a ton of work to coordinate our friends (and listened to my set, like, a lot of times,) and to everyone who came and laughed! This was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again!
