After my show tonight I went to my car and discovered this. I’m sleeping with one eye open tonight.
My dog can’t shake his Seasonal Affective Disorder. Any advice?
WEEK IN COMEDY: Lots of lady comedy! Bonnie McFarlane. Latice! Kate Wolff fresh from filming NickMom. Laughs on Fairmount. Ophira Eisenberg (my camera died before I could get a picture)! Me in red pants at Bust’s Lady Laugh-In. Calise Hawkins. And of course, the man, Mr. John Nunn.
My dog keeps asking me what oscillation is. Awkward. Any advice?
Tomorrow night. Hosted by John Nunn. EXCITED!
WEEK IN SHOWS: T.J. Hurley and Alejandro Morales took over Laughs on Fairmount Monday before their 2nd installment of East Coast Power Nap, Wednesday. I finally met the hilarious Julia Scotti. John Nunn killed it and T.J. wore a ridiculous Pope hat. Open Mic Night at L2 had comedy under the disco ball. Chris Dolan performed and is a hilarious comedian you should follow on Twitter. And finally Friday I hosted a somewhat awkwardly, awesome, slightly racist comedy show (comedians Sidney Gantt and Andy Nolan pictured).
Don’t forget this Tuesday John Nunn hosts BUST’s Lady Laugh-In at the Public Assembly!! Tickets are $5 and it’s going to be awesome!
I don’t how to celebrate Easter.
Boston, Massachusetts. Known for their famous lobster rolls, Boston Common, and of course, their bronze, frog statues. At least that’s what my taxi driver told me.
I spent part of last week visiting Boston for the Women in Comedy festival. Here is proof I performed:
And here is proof that I met and put my braid on the amazing Rachel Dratch.
Ok, let’s move on. What I completely forgot about the state of Massachusetts is the fact that one of the craziest, neatest, witchiest events took place there in 1692: The Salem Witch Trials!!!!
If you’re reading this, you probably know I used to be a tweenage witch. Basically I watched The Craft and shopped at Wicks n’ Sticks heavily between the ages of eleven and fourteen. So I was excited to learn Salem was only 30 minutes and a $16.00 train ride away from Boston. I had to visit the mother land.
For those of you who enjoy museums, themed-restaurants, and re-enactments, Salem is not for you. But for those of you that enjoy ‘museums’, mean waitresses, and wax figures that will haunt your nightmares for years, get on yer broomstick!
Salem is awesome. It’s the low-budget Roswell of the Northeast but with more crystals. You like cemeteries? Salem has one of them! Just one I think. You like sticking your head through wooden things? Yeah. ME TOO.
You’ll need extra money for all the souvenirs you’ll purchase at the Red Lion Smoke Shop, which is SO MUCH MORE THAN A SMOKE SHOP!!
And believe it or not, they had Tina Fey’s Bossypants for only $5.00! I hope my book at least ends up in a high-end crystal shop.
We learned that during the witch-hunt craze, women were often ‘hysterical’ and just fainted everywhere.
Racism was still a thing.
I think we need a close-up.
Unknown to most, Salem is also a popular vacation spot for Jack Skellington and Rose McGowan. We happened to run into them.
Like I said, Salem is absolutely worth the train ride. Charge your camera, wear comfortable shoes and take lots of pictures for me at the Witch Dungeon Museum. I think they were closed for their yearly cleaning.
I called the cops on this balloon.
I would not make a good gun owner. There should be a way for President Obama to incorporate gun control and deflating balloons. Every right-wing, pro-gun nut job should have to first spend a night in a house filled with half a dozen creeping, dying balloons. I guarantee the next morning would be a helium-soaked crime scene of slain smiley faces.
My heart goes out to all the defenseless ‘Congratulations!’ balloons that Oscar Pistorius undoubtedly murdered in his hotel room in London this past summer.
This was last night and it was so much fun. I was proud to be a vegetarian. Watching non-vegetarians stuff their faces with seitan somehow makes up for all the ridicule I suffered throughout high school. Sixteen-year olds with self-esteem issues should never be allowed to wear fake eyelashes.
