Comedy Night 1: I felt very nervous for my first comedy set, but felt really good after. I wished I had been able to be more natural, but peoples reactions were positive and my jokes went over well in the relatively low energy space. I felt much more confident performing in front of class the next day.
Comedy Night 2:
The video recording started slightly in to my set, which was strange because it cut off the first part where I got up and drew a blank. That had never happened to me on stage before and I felt very frozen and uncomfortable. I remembered my place again and the rest of the set went well and I was much more relaxed, but it left me with a fear of not always having the mental clarity I usually feel on stage.
This was a monologue written by Rachel with help from me that I recorded and animated. I think the piece is very funny and has a comical randomness and repetitiveness which I tried to mirror in the visual.
How to make a Margherita:
This piece was an improvisational video that Rachel, Maia and I put together. We didn't talk about what we were going to do ahead of time and just took turns adding an ingredient. I then edited it. I worry that this piece has an element of punching down as if we are making fun of shallow party girls. I really enjoyed the improvised aspect though and think it turned out really natural and funny.
