"What do you do?"
I’ve always been uncomfortable answering this question because the conversation usually goes something like this:
Them: What do you do?
Me: I’m a stand-up comedian.
Them: Really? Tell me a joke!
Me: Ok. Cash or charge?
Me: Well, you don’t work for free and neither do I.
Then I pull out my Square and it just gets awkward.
After reading the article, “How to Introduce Yourself” here’s a new answer I’m testing out:
“What do I do? I create curated, comedic content delivered in theatrical spaces to help people laugh at life.”
Hmmm, I’ll keep my Square handy.
