My First Road Gig

6 years ago, I was invited to be the featured act for an entire week at a Comedy Club in Texas for a total of $500. Although the pay wasn’t so great and travel pay wasn’t covered, I accepted the gig. Making the best of it by deciding to chalk it up to experience. I hopped onto my 4 door Sedan and drove for 10 hours straight. Soon as I made it into town, I checked into my free room then sped over to the club. I made it just in time for the first show and knocked it out of the park. 5 days and 10 shows later, I made a few dozen fans and drove back home satisfied with my choice to experience the road comic scene. Fast forward to today, a fan of mine left me 5 of the kindest most heartfelt messages.
In short she said, “My boyfriend and I were on our first date when we saw you perform in Texas…you really made our night. Afterward he pulled out a $100 wedding ring which was all he could afford at the time and asked me to marry him. All of his friends laughed at him but I thought it was the sweetest thing in the world. We’ve been happily married ever since and I just want to thank you for everything you did then and everything you do now with your funny posts and inspirational videos”.
I was seriously in shock, because here I am going through my own trials, searching for something to shake it off and she sends me this heartfelt testimonial. This is exactly what I needed to hear. That trip to Texas was one of the best choices I could have ever made. Congratulations to the happy couple, may you celebrate 60 more years of happiness and prosperity. Salud!
