Something tells me that I’ll never do anything big…but then again, I still haven’t met your mother. My name is Hugh and I’m an aspiring stand up comedian from Levittown, NY. I apologize for the very “Californication-y” title and opening sentence but I am currently re-watching the entire series with my girlfriend to catch her up on the new shows.
I call myself an “aspiring” stand up comedian because it is not yet my full time job. I soak hundreds of hours a month into this hobby but I don’t make nearly enough money as a comic to quit my day job. Currently I’m working as an Engineer at a power plant in Queens but I’m pretty sure my boss hates me because of my sassy mouth.
I’m a narcissist, insomniac, pessimist and an addict. The fear and self-loathing that goes through my head on a daily basis could be something that interests you or it could just seem like some pre-menstrual teenage girl whining on her LiveJournal.
I just figured it would be interesting at best, entertaining to say the least to watch me spiral down passed the depths in which a human can emotionally withstand with all the ups, downs, laughs, screams and heartbreaks of show business while holding down a career, going to school, being in a healthy relationship and still managing to keep
a few a shit load of my bad habits in the mix.
I also have old blogs and writings that I keep finding, so I may treat this like a Tumblr and just post random stuff that I find and think is cool. I’ll probably have a Hugh’s Favorites page in which you can revisit some of my favorite posts that garnished me some attention from certain writing/performing circles.
Or you can just come back and visit every day, treat this like reality TV for the literate and watch me drown in a sea of my own wit, whiskey and wishing while I casually float into the horizon sarcastically laughing at my own delusions of grandeur.
