Starting standup so young helped me get out of my system. So after 10 years of it, I felt like I was ready to move on. I had an audition set up with Second City in Chicago but I got into grad school around the same time and well, I chose that instead. But it was really fun when I was doing it and it was very strange to get paid for it!! So now I have no fear of public-speaking which is good cause I have to do ALOT of it for my job and toasts at friends' weddings and parties!!
