Here’s a peek into my life outside numerology and palmistry. As I blogged, my July Blue Moon wish was to pursue Stand Up Comedy in Brisbane. So I signed up for a course with Fiona McGary (who also sees 11:11 on clocks).
Here’s the result: Watch Sarah Yip perform her Stand Up Comedy Debut at the Sit Down Comedy Club. Video is 11 minutes 11 seconds and comes with a mild language warning.
Background to this clip: Thank you to my Soulmate, Kris Anderson for filming this show.
DO watch it if: you like jokes about bogan Asian psychics. For the non-Queenslanders, a bogan is a term used to refer to people who live in a certain part of Brisbane which is known for its ‘unique characters’.
DO NOT watch it if: you don’t like swearing, M-rated content or jokes about bogan Asian psychics. Or if you are my Dad. Or if you get annoyed by the fact I have no nose and my glasses keep falling down. Or if you are pedantic about Asian accents and want to nitpick my Chinglish. Remember – this is my first show ever. You gotta start somewhere!
And for the record, here are the facts (which will make sense after you watch the clip):
