Stage Taylor

Monday, February 24, 2014

Meet Stage Taylor. She's a lot like me, only a little more put together- like she wears makeup and fancy stuff like that. And she likes to carry a gross black brief-case like thing with her that holds her acting resume and headshot just in case... Just in case she gets "discovered" on the bus one day. (You know, because people who "discover" people ride public buses I'm sure.)


She's also a lot more outgoing and bold than I am. She'll say things and do things that I would normally be way too embarrassed or shy to even attempt to express out loud.  But she figures why the hell not, life's too fun on stage to be hesitant. I guess I'd rather have her around than Terry. We all remember that nut job right?

I've got a lot of alter-egos, what can I say.

Stage-me has kind of a big week coming up here. This is a good thing because after taking the past five days off from comedy while I was in Steamboat I have this nagging feeling like I've suddenly fallen way behind. I feel like while I was playing in the mountains everyone else was getting better. And I hate that feeling. So I'm anxious to get back to my Second City class today and some stand-up right after. Followed by more stand-up Tuesday night and Wednesday... and on Thursday the camera crew arrives at my house to start filming for the reality show.  Now that's a phrase I never thought I'd say in my life...

I honestly have no idea what to expect with the show. I just know the crew will be arriving in town Thursday morning and will be coming to my house to film me here (and Harlow) and a little bit of myself out and about the city. At this point I'm just excited for a new experience. If you haven't noticed I'm kind of into trying out weird things so I'm all on board for this next little adventure.

Then on Friday my parents and my sister are coming to town to watch my show at the Laugh Factory. If you'd still like to get tickets you can purchase them here.  Choose the 10 p.m. show and enter the promotional code "chris bader". I am so excited for this show and will probably be hyperventilating before going on, but hopefully Stage Taylor will take over and tell me to shut the hell up.

And to finish off the weekend I've got a show at iO on Sunday night. So yeah, I guess you could say I'm kind of looking forward to this week and all it has in store. On that note, it's time to jump head first into this Monday. I need to take Harlow for a long walk outside, it's rumored to be eight degrees right now so we're really looking forward to it...

  3. Stage Taylor also has cute sweaters, apparently.

    It's really incredible how much confidence you have to put yourself out there and do that comedy thing, I wish I lived in Chicago so I could come support you! I think you're hilarious on here for sure, so I imagine your ability to write and be funny in a public forum gives you something of a leg up on the competition out there.

    *had to edit for a your/you're mixup and first changed the wrong one... having a rough Monday over here

  23. Oh my gosh! This is all very exciting. First of all, I just started following you very recently and didn't realize you were a comedian. Total props to you for that. I think I can be funny sometimes, but to do stand up.. WOW! You must be funny! How cool is it that you're shooting the pilot!? How amazing would it be if you get to do this show!?! I'm excited for you.. Good luck Stage Taylor oh, and regular, ol' high anxiety, poopin' in your pants Taylor! ;)
