Oh Boy! Literally! Our oldest son.. the comedian! He has always been funny, a little smart assy! Lol… about 7 years now he has been making YouTube and Facebook videos of just random things all funny maybe 1 or 2 serious ones. He is a natural in front of the camera. Not shy at all. He came to us last month telling us he was going to go to a local casino and do their open mic night for stand up comedy. No way we were gona miss that. Now I, his momma have a bit of a dry sense of humor and don’t agree with some of the things he says. But was going to be there to support him on his first night on a stage in front of a live audience. His dad is his biggest fan for sure! Always cracking up so loud 😂
So the night finally got here. As we drove to the casino we just kept saying we hope he does good. We were so nervous for him. What if he gets up there and freezes! When we arrived we found the comic room and him, some of his friends and several other comedians ready to perform. My husband and I had never been to a comic club. As the time got closer for the show to start Cameron started pacing the floor. I instantly started praying! God please ease his nervousness, please let him have courage, please let him be funny to everyone and I prayed he cleaned up his act not so vulgar. He was set to perform towards the last. So like I said i have a dry sense of humor so the first few i was like ” why are they up here, that’s not funny” “did they just say that” but everyone was laughing. Except me. Lol. I should liven up. Then this one guy went up there and instantly started roasting all the comedians that just performed before him. I couldn’t help but bust out laughing. He was good.
Cameron walked by us and said it’s about time and headed for the stage. My husband looked at me and said ” I’m so nervous for him i might throw up ” now thats a fathers love! Me, instantly praying more! Please Jesus!!!!
The announcer called his name! Cameron walked onto that stage grabbed the microphone and instantly started his act! Never missing a beat. He is a natural in front of an audience! Everyone was laughing. I was laughing so hard i was crying! I couldn’t stop laughing. He cleaned up his act too! He was funny, hillarious is an understatement! He was doing it, our son was up on a stage doing something he loved to do. Make everyone laugh. And he is Good!
Of course when he walked off the stage he was excited. He just accomplished something for himself, by himself. And he nailed it from beginning to end! His dad and I very proud. Our son is happy! That of course is one of the most important things we want for our children. Happiness.
After the show was over another comedian came over to him and invited him to some more open mic nights. Told him he was good and asked if he would like to start practicing with his group. The guy couldn’t believe it was his very first time on stage. Like i said before a natural!
For that his dad and I very proud of him!
