Were you hoping for a new headline? I thought about shaking it up, I really did. How about "Fifty Shades of Comedy"? No, too trendy. "March Means Laugh Your Ass Off!" It does mean that, and no one can really argue. Who can't laugh at a month that celebrates by turning Budweiser green? But then I thought to myself, "Jenna, you need to settle down and stay the course. Don't get fancy. Just state what's on your agenda." No flowery language - I only have time for making hay while the sun shines. Spoiler alert - I also won the heart of The Bachelor
and I'm moving to Iowa!
But before I go off into the blissful hinterlands with the hottest Bachelor EVER, after the most AMAZING courtship and most SHOCKING season OF ALL TIME, I do have a few shows to complete. Let me tell you about them!
First up is an event that's not mine, but is very special nonetheless. Hey, it doesn't have to be all
about me, all of the time. At least that's what my therapist tells me. Anywhoodles - this is right around the corner, so unzip that wallet, remove that credit card, and book a seat Saturday, March 7th
for the PDX Comedy Mix Tape
! Ever dreamed of being on an album? This is your chance - a live recording of a comedy show, with an absolutely astounding lineup of some of the best comedians P-Town has to offer. All the details you need are right here.
Next is a showcase I'm super honored to be a part of: Earthquake Hurricane Comedy at the uber-hip Kickstand Comedy Space. I'm part of an "emerging talent" lineup and I am soooo excited! That one is going down Wednesday, March 11th at 8:00 pm. It's technically free, but a $5 donation is highly encouraged. And trust me - it's gonna be so worth it. Embrace the rare opportunity to see someone emerge without all that awkward labor!
But, wait - there's more! Some of you might know that me and the hubs* just moved into our dream home and, to celebrate, we're having an EPIC garage sale! Again, if you know me, you know that I have a serious collection of vintage swag. For those of you who don't know, allow me to introduce myself as someone with a refined palette for steeze, combined with the shopping skills of a motherfucking ninja. i.e. - I used to thrift when you could actually score stuff (as is evident by this tantalizing shot of this adorable fish) and now I need to release a lot of it back into the world. What? Not comedy, you say? Oh, just wait until you see all the stuff I've collected. Trust me, my husband thinks it's HILARIOUS. We are shooting to unload these treasures the weekend of March 21 & 22. I am a lot of things, but not crazy enough to put my home address on this blog. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details. Also, what a great way to test if anyone is reading this!
March isn't done. March will tell you when it's done! Next: the amazing Robert Ham (yes, that's his real name - lucky bastard) has asked me back to emcee another fab $5 Bill Showcase at Turn! Turn! Turn! on Killingsworth on Wednesday, March 25th. That lineup hasn't been announced - though I'm on it, so I think we have all the information we need. Ah, jk - I'll totes update when I get the info.
And finally, here is a very special head's up regarding April. The next Keep It Like A Secret
is Wednesday, April 8th
- it's more than a month away and it's already on its way to selling out! But you are on my mailing list - you are smart and you know you need to act now so as not to miss Tom Brady
(or, as I like to call him, Tom "Full Balls
" Brady), Amy Miller, Jen Tam, Patrick Quinn
, and Dave Ross
(via Skype). It's gonna blow the roof off - don't miss it! Tickets and show info right here.
Until then, dear friends! And, as always, hope to see you at the shows! xo
(*Yes, I am one of those annoying women that refers to her husband as "the hubs." I hope you can forgive me.)
