Growing up in Cambridge, Minnesota, I went on to enjoy a rewarding 14-year career in community journalism before switching gears to public library service. Every day I am grateful for and learn something new through my marketing and branch assistant roles at East Central Regional Library.

  1. “learn about stand-up comedy, improvisation, comedy writing and more.” This is something that need to be conducted regularly and it is good for ‘newbie’ comedian who try to find their own unique material and performances. I hope i can join this workshop next time and i really want to improve myself when presenting the stand up comedy. Sometimes my jokes only can be understood by close friend and not a stranger. If a stranger can laugh at your jokes, it will be a good indicator that you can perform on the stage.
