    You are great on stage Mark. It's no wonder you won with your delivery, timing, relaxed style and of course your humor.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Thanks to you all for the generous comments..!! I am humbled...

    I lost much sleep in the build up, but so glad now that I did it. If anyone is ever tempted I strongly recommend it. My only piece of advice would be to PRACTICE.

    Some people worry that practice will make the routine seem too wooden and rehearsed - not spontaneous. But in reality it is the opposite - you know your material soooo well that you can actually riff off script with confidence. And once you get the first couple of laughs, that confidence just carries you through.....

    Anyway, that is my 2 cents...no plans to do it again tho, quit while I'm ahead and all that

    That was great. I'm always joking around with people. I had these two middle-aged ladies at the doctors office ready to pee their pants. They said I was hilarious. I can find a dirty pun and almost anything said. My nurse who changes my catheter said I should be a stand up comedian. I just looked at her funny

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.
