Eliza Love is ready to make you smile and belly laugh with her own unique brand of humor on the Gazette Facebook's exclusive Take 10 segment on Friday, March 31, in the noon hour. This 35-year-old part-time teacher in a Colorado Springs school district wears many hats in her professional and personal life - which now includes being a budding comedienne.
Love is also a full-time solo-parenting mom, as she labels herself, of triplet girls, now 10 months old and two boys, ages 9 and 12.
Her story of embracing comedy started when she was an elementary school student. She says when she was shy as a young girl and noticed that kids who were shy were targeted by bullies, "I learned early on that if I was funny, I wouldn't be a target." Love's journey to become a professional comic took to the stage, literally in November 2016. There was an open-mic night at Loonees Comedy Corner in Colorado Springs. She and her dad decided to perform solo routines. After her performance, she says she was hooked.
As Love describes it, she works really hard to write situational humor to help other people minus the profanity and being crass to press her point, "My goal is to help others and teach others to help them rewrite their lives in a funny way and help reduce the pain."
Every Friday during the noon hour on the Gazette Facebook page we invite performers in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region to shine brightly, live for 10 minutes on our Take 10 show. If you are budding musician, magician, playwright, poet, comic or whatever channel you take to make others smile at your talent, email firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to book you on our show to let others Take 10 with your performance.
