As I’m about to perform the show in a variety of places in the coming months I’ve started to write and reminisce about other potentially humorous tales. I mentioned in my last humorous story that I've been reminiscing about potential new material for my Delusions Stand Up Comedy Show. I was just pottering about with… Continue reading Funny Tales 2.
