TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)– Take a minute to tap into your teenage self. Remember the days of cutting out your celebrity crush from a magazine. Now, imagine going on date with your celebrity crush and completely ruining it. Well, that’s what happened to Nicole Burch and she’s sharing her story in a new comedy special.
Burch might just be all of us in the misfortunes of what some call dating.
“I take some pretty tragic moments that at the time were horrible,” Burch said. “And then I’m like, we have to laugh about it.”
Burch is a Kansas City native who graduated from Washburn University in 2004. Initially, she wanted to go to school to become a doctor. Then, she found out how much math was involved so she changed her mind. Comedy wasn’t a long-term goal, just a temporary way to pass the time.
“I remember, actually, a sorority sister here at Washburn gave me my first journal,” Burch said. “And I just started writing funny bits.”
