Knotts has been closed down since the end of March, due to COVID, so Emmanuel has been at home, collecting Unemployment from the state. He has applied for work in a few places, and been called for interviews, but has not been selected.
And so, Emmanuel just continues life at home. He has been taking several classes from Held2Gether, but they have been meeting via Zoom instead of on campus. He loves those classes, learning more and more in the trade he enjoy: comedy and improv.
He has been able to participate in several comedy shows at the end of the 6 week sessions so he can get better at his performing skills. They have had to do that via Zoom, and uploading to the Held2Gether YouTube channel.
thing I want to mention in this update is that Emmanuel just premiered his first comedy series on Facebook and YouTube! It is called "News for Yous", inspired by SNL, where he takes current news and adds a comical twist to it. The first one he did
was excellent! He has been working on is writing jokes every day, like Jerry Seinfeld used to do. He has books he bought that help him learn how to write better; he even has a set time to read the books and to write every day! I'm very proud of him. His dream
is to be a famous comedian one day, either performing live on stage, or doing his own series on Facebook and YouTube. He may also look into writing for late night shows. We shall see what God has in store for him in his future, but I can see he is following
the path he has laid out for him - in the entertainment world, helping us to laugh, lighten up, and not take life so seriously.
