RE: Be a stand up comedian
I did stand-up in Argentina in Spanish, was nerve-wracking and intense, but wanted to face that fear. It went well. I think a lot of times people do really well the first time they do it - all that nervous energy can push you and translate well on stage, then the next couple times they suck and feel like they plateau. Do an open mic - get 5 minutes of material together, practice on your friends, practice tongue twisters and such to loosen yourself up, go to an open mic first so you understand how it works and absorb the basic physical stuff - i.e., how not to fuck up the mic stand, if you remove the mic from the stand, move the stand out of your way, don't stand behind it, etc.
