I had hoped to move the audience with honest words-
Something that had required
great effort to share and admit to an
they began to laugh.
it was my fault, i am usually just kidding.
they had assumed i was setting up a joke-
in fact i wanted to bare my soul-
i slipped in a line stating this was not a joke-
and again laughter began-
it reminds me of an old woody allen interview where he brought his clarinet and begins to play-
the audience instantly begins to think its a joke and laughs-
they laughed at him while trying to play the music in his head-
he spent most of his life
hours and hours
he stopped trying and turned it into a gag
the audience just didn't get it-
he was serious
But he gave them what they wanted anyways-
you don't have to be funny all the time.
[sometime your still the same guy who
practiced for hours and hours-
