A month ago, if you were to have told me that I had written four separate stand up sets, performed at four different events on campus and two public open mics in Vancouver, I would have been startled, but very proud. I feel that over the course of this month I was able to challenge myself and push my creativity, while exploring the bounds of what makes other people laugh while staying true to my own nerdy complex sense of humor. I have divided the following portfolio up into the sections that feel shaped the course for me and influenced my experience. Overall, I would put 40% of my grade on performance and 30% on contribution and writing. I feel that I really pushed myself in the area of performance and challenged myself to craft new and specific material for every set I got the chance to do. At the beginning, I had no idea how to perform or craft a set in a way that I thought would be original and make people laugh while figuring out how to include critical insight, however I feel I was able to rise to the challenge that the course presented. The following blog posts represent some of my creative works, video projects and analyses of literature. In parentheses, I have marked which Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) are applicable.
