"It was like, the smallest thing, but was so profound for me. I had known this at fifteen, that this was my calling, and I had quit. And now here I was, telling my stories and hearing people laugh at them and feeling that rush again. I started doing lots of open mics, getting my comedy chops back again. And the more time that I spent on comedy, the more the bleeding stopped. The stomach pains stopped. The crying and depression stopped. I don't know how or why, but all the bad shit stopped. All of it. Just from doing open mics. I started to become more happy and more joyous. I started thinking more positive. I started reading positive books."
