If I could have a job doing what I love most I’d have to say it would be being a comedian. I’ve always cherished the feeling you recieve when, if just for one second, you can brighten someones day through laughter. In my opinion comedians have an unspoken responsibility to not only make people laugh but for a short period of time help them forget about all their hardships or difficult times. I have always respected this notion and have tried my hardest to apply it into my everyday life. Ask any family member, friend, or co-worker of mine and most would tell you that I have always tried to make people laugh. I still remember as a kid when I would do something so silly or say something so hilarious that my mother would say while in tears from laughing, “Whew, I needed that Drew”. I think it was moments like this exampe that I saw the overwhelming good in laugher and I never wanted that feeling to stop. Comedians really do have the power to alter any situation with their gifts. They might be able take a hostile environment and make it disappear with a few jokes or cause someone to smile when they needed it most. Jim Carrey was said in reference to his proffesion, “The effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is”. It’s just now that I’m older I finally understand why I’ve always wanted to be a comedian so badly.
