–most of the time. My song tonight was a surprise–to everyone, especially to me. It was ~almost in the right key. Until I hit the high note–at somewhat of an angle. Whether you think you can sing, or not, we all have a key that is right for us. Just like we have a style of humor that is uniquely our own. When we use this type of humor, it is natural, sounds beautiful, and connects people. To you, to your perspective, to your ideas, to each other. In other words, it makes an impact.
All comedy is based on truth. When comedians tell jokes that aren’t based on their own lives (if an accountant tries to tell rap jokes, honestly) it is rarely funny. It’s like listening to them sing in a key that’s not their own. It is uncomfortable, they look like they are in pain, we are definitely in pain hearing it. It is unpleasant and ineffective. But when they take the events, people, emotions of their own, real life, and make those things funny–THAT is funny, no matter who you are, and no matter what key you sing it in!
Keep in tune with your truth and you will always get a laugh. And “Get Your SHINE Together!”
