I have been bitten by the YouTube video bug

I have been bitten by the YouTube bug. For the past two months I have focused on creating humorous videos. I really have a lot of fun making them. I have thrown in the occasional commercial to experiment with what people are responding to, however my favorite thing to do is comedy.

I am always surprised at how challenging it is to record an idea. I know what I would like, but limits and restrictions sometime make it so the only way to pull it off is with some creative compromise. One of my videos is about what it would be like for me to go to heaven. The final product was very different than what was imagined in my mind,.Still I feel good that I produced something funny. You can judge for yourself ( https://youtu.be/sL-PDpLYWuM ).

I  have had my driving privilege temporarily suspended. It has made it difficult for me to make it to do stand up shows. That is why making funny videos has been a godsend. I am still writing and being creative without having to travel. I do miss travelling though. I am working on a few characters. I hope people will find my newest projects funny, I really do. Let me know what you think. Check out my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/DickeyBillWagner. If you like my channel please subscribe.

I still love to do stand up comedy and continue to perform regularly. The difference is that in a live performance the feedback is instantaneous. I only know for sure if someone thinks a video is funny is if I am present when they watch it. I get the same thrill when laughter erupts. The amazing thing is that different people laugh at different things. For example the very first video I made during this last frenzy of output; I showed to everyone I know. Each person laughed out loud at different aspects of the same video. That did fill me with hope that maybe I am on to something here.

Before you judge too harshly, just know that my videos were recorded on a Samsung 6 smartphone. I would like to upgrade the production quality. Better equipment gives more options to how a video is produced. I have started a GoFundMe page just for this purpose. There have already been some donations. This proves to me two things.
              1. Some of my friends have faith that I will produce quality comedic content.
              2. People do want funny videos to watch and laugh at.
I know that I will keep producing videos even if it is just on my phone. I have a fantasy of making the whole world laugh. Donations are appreciated. Go to https://www.gofundme.com/dbwcomedyvideos and give what you can. Really anything helps. So there you have it. This is what I have been doing for the last couple months. Hopefully I will check in a lot quicker next time.
