It’s not like out of the 400+ people who auditioned, someone ranked #65 and I screwed them over with some privilege. The auditions don’t work that way (I don’t know how they work, but they’re not like that). They’re subjective AND they’re about comedy, so it’s all a matter of opinion and personal likes.
And just because you didn’t make it to the second step of getting on a house team doesn’t mean you can’t make your own team and have a lot of fun and success. There’s a lot of joy out there, but you have to create it.
In the words of Dr. Henry Jones, “Indiana, let it go.” All this unhappiness won’t result in making you feel any better.
To quote Conan O’Brien…
Please do not be cynical… it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. I’m telling you, amazing things will happen.
This is the last time I’ll respond publicly to your anonymous questions, but seriously, if you wanna talk, I’m at kirk.damato over at the gmail. Make up a fake address if you’d prefer to stay anonymous.
PS: You can also bring up anything you want on that online survey that was sent out with audition confirmations.
