I’ve been to New York City more times than I can remember. I’ve always lived in Massachusetts, so the drive has never been too bad and there’s enough stuff to do there and field trips to be had in middle school for having good grades. I’ve even performed stand-up in Chelsea before, but one thing I haven’t done is spent an extended period in the Big Apple.
Next week this changes, as I’ll be in NYC from the 18th-25th. For a long time now I’ve wanted to take an improv comedy class at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and the week of the 19th they are having an intensive course where I’ll be improv-ing for something like 6 hours a day. At night I hope to go to and possibly perform at some stand-up shows and explore the city, all while doing some blogging when I can find the time. So stay tuned for plenty of updates here and on my Twitter feed.
