It Keeps Going....

The descent or ascent, depending on your perspective, continues. I ended my working relationship with Yuk Yuks after some seven years of affiliation. It was on good terms and I leave with a good relationship in tow. Still, pleasentries and well-wishes to not ease a tough path. I have a hard road ahead - it's up to me to drive it. I can just as easily veer off the edge.

This continues what has become a bizarre time in my life where major changes and unplanned occurrences have been the norm. Predictability and normality have long since been casualties of the path I'm traveling.

There is an enormous amount of work to do, but he outlook remains positive. In the interim, I can be seen performing at the FunnyFest, the Calgary Comedy Festival. At Months end, you can catch me in my first theater show in Saskatoon. I will be joined by some of Canada's funniest comedians under 30 years of age. In fact, I think we're all 26. I am in negotiations to perform in another festival beginning in June. There are clubs around the country whom I have contacts with and will be working with within the coming months. I am the pimp of Brett Martin now. Gotta go make some money for the rent.

Most of all, my back is up against the fucking wall, and make no mistake - I feel it. I can crash and burn. I can become nothing. Nobody is out to help me. I am in the place I almost feel most comfortable - behind the eight ball. Funny - all I had to do to rediscover my edge and chutzpah was to throw away all that gave me a leg up. The Piss, vinegar and determination are back. It's all I have to rely on.

The goal remains the same.....
