Imagine for a second your grandmother decided to take the stage at an open mic comedy night..in Winnipeg.
Well fortunately for me, I don’t have to, because my 89-year-old grandmother did just that, and I knew she would, she brought the house down.Â And luckily for you guys, there’s video of the one and only Jean Morrison to prove it.
It was all a part of the Winnipeg’s Gone Wacky contest and up for grabs is a chance to make it to the Top Ten and perform at the Comedy showdown.Â The winner of that will be named Winnipegâ€™s Wackiest Amateur Comedian 2011, and she could win a $1,000 and a Blackberry Playbook.
You have to register to vote (which is annoying), but seriously, she’s 89, how could you not want to vote?
My granny has always dreamed about being a stand up comedian, and she’s dabbled a little bit, but I think this was the first time she intentionally went up and had a routine prepared.Â I can’t imagine ever standing up like she did, especially in a crowd full of comedians.
I’ve watched the video probably nine times already and I continue to be in awe.Â How lucky am I to have someone that has set the Morrison bar so high, yeah, I’m very, very lucky.
