In March of 2002, Donna made the leap of faith (or insanity, depending on your point of view), and went full-time as a comic. Since then she has been entertaining virtually every week at clubs all over the country, and in September 2002, was given an opportunity to have her standup filmed for a documentary to be released within a few months. Most folk would be afraid to start something as bold as comedy at the age of 40, let alone begin a new career at 44. Most (especially Donna's mother) think she's crazy. To that, Donna says in her signature syrupy southern drawl, "What the hell . . . I was gonna be 45 anyway . . . might as well do something that I love."
