Stirling Stands Up

A Day in the Life of a Stand Up Comedian

About Me

All About Me.

Where to start? Where to start? In the beginning there was the word….. and the word was good. It was good if you were a scholar or part of the ruling class. Thank evolution that those days are over. But I so love the written word, the spoken word and anything with words in them.

Welcome to Stirling Stands Up. The newest incarnation of my website. In this media saturated society I’ve succumbed to technological pressure and decided to embrace rather than shun this medium. My mission is to use this site only for good and for expressing my varied opinions and sharing my Stand-Up experiences which have thus far been very positive and motivating.

Stirling Smith grew up on the South Shore. As the seventh child she was often overlooked but rarely overfed. She was active on the stage and in the area of athletics where she clearly excelled. Some of her highschool records have yet to be broken. After jumping her way through college as a private fitness instructor she found her calling as a chef in some of Boston’s finest restaurants. In between both those noble professions she has been a roadie, bouncer, barback, bartender, carpenter, electrican apprentice, physical education teacher, artist’s model, voice-over talent and had a speaking role in a commercial for Tyson foods. When she’s not working she enjoys being back on stage embellishing her life stories with a laughtrack all her own.
Stay tuned.

FUCT?
Hey, hey, hey!! Happy New Year, etc. It's been way, way to long since my last post. When is fuct a good thing? When you're on the dick end of the equation. Definitely. Oh man, you're fuct" WTF? All these and many more indicate something gone wrong. These are not joyous explications of happiness. "Dude, I was so fuct up last night" has the air of optimism sort of? No? No. Half the world is trying to fuc butt not...

Aprils Fools?
Fools in Love, I'm a fool for you. A fool and his money etc. Fool me once. So many fools, so little time.The time is now April Fools to applaud your silliness, your crazy antics, your errant ways that make us laugh. There's a fool in the white house and all over the nuthouse we call the government. It seems that only the fools are noticing how funny all this is. It's a great time to be a comic or...

14 hours in Hell
Does it matter who said we had the guest house "all day"? No. But when we found out check out was at 10 and our flight 10 hours later, my man scrambled into action and found us an earlier flight within minutes. We barely had time to say our goodbyes before we were sitting at gate #5. I'm not a nervous traveler but I became one when our boarding time 11:15 turned into 11:35 and our young, friendly but obviously...

The C Word: Friends?
I've got friends I've had since before I had boobs or pubic hair or cancer. I only see them at reunions, funerals and Facebook and that's ok because at least I know where to find them. And they're so great for a "like" or a "poke" or a posted bit of advice when needed. (You know who you are) It's the ones close to home that I have a problem with. The ones I expect to talk, type or text...

The C Word: And the secret word is: Consumer
I appreciate what I pay for. If I want it. If I can afford it. I buy it! Simple, right? Have I mentioned my new motorcycle? I call him Tweety. I haven't been this excited about something warm and vibrating between my legs since...well, EVER! I have insurance because I have to. It's the LAW! And when it comes to medical bills I'm thankful that I have it. I don't like paying for it but I appreciate how much less...

The C Word: The Year in Review
Just about one year ago I was beginning my second round of chemo and my 5th week of radiation. My ass resembled a female baboon in heat (I've got pictures) and believe you me sex was the farthest thing from my mind (although the post about dildos is one of my favorites). The swelling has gone down and the dildos are collecting dust in some shoe-box in my closet. And my opinion on sex remains unchanged. 12 months ago I...
