a career in comedy

There are three different schools of improv comedy here in Los Angeles. Each one of them has their own little style and they all run different theatres. Basically, there are 4 levels of comedians in each school. Most people never make it past the first level (1 in 15 students) and oftentimes that one student who makes it has taken multiple classes on the first level. Level #1 is where I am at right now and I have never even thought about advancing onto the next level (only having attended class 3 times). Well, today my teacher told me that she would like to invite me to level #2. Me and one other student (who I consider to be hilarious) were asked to advance. Holy smokes. That was a very big honor and I am actually kind of proud about it. But we shall see what I can make out of it. I really don’t have a lot of extra time to invest into my comedy life, yet I might never get an opportunity like this again. I guess I am very fortunate that I get to make this choice.
