Made You Look.

I always do my best to perform for an audience. And I disappoint myself when if I feel like I didn’t live up to my own expectations, even if I do net laughs. Wrestling taught me to respect that fragile relationship between performer and audience, but comedy makes me earn it every single time. And I want to get better. Fortunately, wrestling gave me the skills to, at the very least, make a crowd look my way. It’s a personal challenge and a matter of professional pride, even at my level. Especially when I can do it without relying on cheap heat.

No rush can compare
to being up on stage,
lights in my eyes,
mic hot in hand,
bearing my soul
for a live audience
looking the other way

Made You Look. Steve Arviso. 2018.
