What’s the one thing you always wanted to do but, for whatever reason, just never got around to doing?  Was it learn to play an instrument? Climb Stone Mountain? Learn a foreign language? However, as we get older, we recognize that at some point, it is now or never.

Well, for retiree Jean El Guindi, that thing was stand-up comedy.

Through the Cobb County Senior Center, she signed up for an acting class, and the rest is now a fun part of her storied history, as we hear in this Atlanta Sounds piece when she braved the stage for the very first time.
