*So what's a "professional goofball"?
Glad you asked, friendly site visitor. I refer to myself as a professional goofball for a couple of reasons:
it's easier than saying, "I'm a writer, poet, actor, stand-up comic, jokester, impressionist, clown, juggler, magician..." and all of the other things I dabble in. Professional goofball kind of covers everything!
It's a little cooler than saying I'm a "theatre artist," ya know?
It's a combination of two of my favorite things to be: a professional, and a total goof.
It's kind of amusing to read, so sometimes when I hand people my card, they actually keep it.
