  • Colleges love extracurricular activities.

  • It is the final say whether you'll get into the college or not.

  • "You got a perfect score on the SAT?

  • Yeah, but Billy played tennis."

  • So I went to a preparatory school my freshman year.

  • And I joined the newspaper club.

  • And the only reason I did was because I wanted to put my comics in the school newspaper.

  • I was a comic freak back then.

  • Still am, though.

  • But I went to, like, two meetings,

  • and it became very obvious that we weren't gonna make a school newspaper.

  • So I stopped going, and I was basically a derp for the rest of the year.

  • Sophomore year rolls around, and I was going public.

  • And one of my friends,

  • he suggested that I do track and field.

  • And I was like, "Oh!

  • That doesn't seem like a very physically demanding sport.

  • Yeah, yeah!"

  • Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm.

  • On the first day, I was so bad,

  • I threw up on the warm-up lap.

  • I mean, at least I was pushing myself.

  • On the second day, we ran off school grounds before school started.

  • And everyone else made it back before the starting bell rang.

  • But me, being the slowest one on the team,

  • didn't make it back until first period had already started.

  • And then I had to explain to my teacher why I was late and sweaty.

  • I quit track team after those two times,

  • and was basically a derp again for the rest of the year.

  • Then junior year rolls around,

  • And this one girl, she told me,

  • "James, you're so funny!

  • You should try out for the improv team!"

  • And I was like,

  • "Yeah, okay!"

  • Improv was basically a group.. of all the cool theatre kids.

  • And if you have any experience with theater kids,

  • then you know that [lisping] they're just a real treat!

  • I walk into the room for tryouts.

  • Everyone is loud. People already know each other.

  • And no one is quiet.

  • Except for me, sitting in a chair, by myself.

  • Everyone took a turn playing a improv game.

  • And when it was my turn,

  • I went up,

  • and I tried my best.

  • And then I sat back down.

  • And I guess the captain saw something in me

  • because I made the team.

  • And it was awesome!

  • But I only went two times-

  • -heh- I'm just kidding.

  • I stayed in there for the rest of my junior and senior year.

  • Oh, and the newspaper team at the public school

  • asked if I could make comics for their newspaper.

  • One quick story about improv:

  • So we were considered a competitive improv group,

  • that competed against other schools doing shows.

  • And we were playing this one game called "Categories."

  • Basically, you were given a category, like "Fruit."

  • We would stand in a line, and, if the judge pointed to us, we would have to say something in that category.

  • And if you couldn't think of anything, or you said something that wasn't in the category,

  • you were out.

  • So we played the game, and it comes down to me and one other player.

  • And our category was "Occupations."

  • And, out of the MILLIONS of occupations to choose from,

  • the first thing I said was,

  • "Porn Star!"

  • And everyone started laughing and giggling,

  • but I was too caught up in the moment.

  • "Yeah!"

  • "Let's go!"

  • "Has anyone said 'crack dealer' yet?"

  • The judge said I was inappropriate,

  • and the other team won.

  • So that's my story.

  • Did it help me get into a good college?

  • Ehh, no...

  • But if there's anything you should learn from this,

  • it's that you should not be doing any sports. Heh.

  • Stomach, shut up!

Colleges love extracurricular activities.
