overcame meeting one of my favorite comedians


a few months ago, one of my favorite comedians, craig ferguson came to town. he was doing a book signing.i thought id be nervous, but i wasnt.

it was awkward only because most people were like at least 60 and here i am this 20 year old girl. LOL

but he did a signing and i walked right up to him and shook his hand . i was a tiny bit nervous but once he said hi to me it went away. his smile reassured me and he was so nice. i thought id be too shy to say hi but i wasnt. i shook his hand and said thankyou and he smiled sweetly and said "youre very welcome"

it was a fun day because normally when meeting new people and being in a crowded room i get all red and nervous but i overcame it. i forced myself to go up to him and say hi and get my book signed and he was so nice.

That is great! He is pretty funny. Asking for an autograph from someone you admire is so difficult but when you do it, it is so rewarding.

I love Craig Ferguson . I'm surprised that there were so many old people there lol. I'm glad to here he is actually as nice as he appears to be. It's good you overcame your fear and went for it.

way to go! Meeting celebrities or people you admire is always nerve wracking, but rewarding once you do it
