Wounded Warrior Project

Rose is a longtime friend of shortarmguy.com. 

She just sent me this message on Facebook:

Warriors: Get your big break in comedy! Submit a short video with your funniest material. If chosen, you'll be mentored by a famous comedian & perform your routine live at a comedy club. The process will also be filmed for a documentary about healing with laughter. Upload your video to YouTube; email the link with your contact info; a list of your favorite comedians to submissions@comedywarriors.com by March 11.

So I sent them this email:

Hi!

One of my website visitors just sent me a message about your comedy video challenge.

I haven't done much stand-up comedy in several years, but it is my dream to get back into it some day.

Maybe your contest is a great fit for my style of humor. At least, I hope you'll think so.

Here's a clip from July, 2004.

I was performing in an amateur comedy competition and won the first and second rounds, but lost in the finals:


If you want to see more, check out the right side bar of either of my websites below.

Or just let me know and I'll send you more links.

I have a ton of favorite comedians. But the ones who influenced me the most from my childhood would be guys like Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, and Richard Pryor.

Thanks for the consideration!!
