“Yes And” Life. You Never Know What’s Going To Happen.

I had no idea the doors that would open.

Kiley Peters HeadshotAbout a year and a half ago I came up with the idea to create a blog that could serve as a resource for the Chicago comedy community and would help people see the parallels of life and comedy.

A year ago, today, I launched Life’s A Funny Scene. I had my fingers crossed that a few people might find it useful or entertaining and maybe some of my favorite improvisers might trust me enough to allow me to share their words of wisdom with the community at large.

I had no idea what I was doing and I had no idea the number of doors it would open for me within a year’s time. This blog has allowed me the opportunity to interview over two dozen comedians, such as Scott Adsit, John Lutz ,TJ Jagodowski, Jet Eveleth, Tim Baltz and so many other wonderful and talented individuals. It has provided me a place to boast of all the talent Chicago holds and help give a slightly louder voice to those who may have gone unnoticed. It has helped me identify and uncover the true love I have for this community and has shaped almost every aspect of my life today.

I may not have gotten accepted into graduate school without this blog. I absolutely would not have my dream job at The Second City without this blog. I wouldn’t be the comedy beat writer for Choose Chicago without this blog and I probably wouldn’t know half of the beautiful and kind individuals who have flooded my news feeds and inboxes without this blog.

Sometimes we take things for granted, so I just wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for your incredible support and believing in me for this past year. You will never know how much it has meant.

An extra thank you to everyone who ever introduced me to anyone including all the folks at iO Chicago, Improv Nerd, Chicago Improv Festival, The Second City and so many more.

Thank you. I love all of you.
