It's the holiday season and I've got a boatload of shows I'd love to share with you - check it out!
First up, I'll be emceeing the $5 Bill Showcase at Turn! Turn! Turn! tomorrow night (Wed. Dec. 17th) with Andie Main, Zak Toscani, Adam Pasi, and Nathan Brannon. Tons of fun and - you guessed it - the cost is only $5!
Next, it's another fantastic Comedians & Comedies - marking my first event at Mississippi Studios - with comedian Dan Weber and the must-see naughty classic, Bad Santa! Plus a free photo op with our own whiskey-swillin' bad Santa (courtesy of comedian Brodie Kelley) - and the first 10 people in the door get a Christmas pickle (a real ornament, not a euphemism - for once)! Join us Sun. Dec. 21st for this magical evening. Event info and ticket options here.
Then on Sun. Dec. 28th, I have the honor of opening for the amazing NYC comedian Mike Lawrence at my old stomping grounds, Lola's Room (inside the Crystal Ballroom) - definitely one of the biggest shows I've done to date. Now that's how you wrap up 2014! Check out this link for show info and thislink for ticket info. And don't forget to grab a copy of Mike's album, Sadamantium - it's freakin' hilarious!
And there're already things percolating for 2015, including our seventh Keep It Like A Secret - this round with Susan Rice, Bri Pruett, Hutch Harris (of The Thermals), Herman Jolly (of Sunset Valley), and a special Skype set with Kate Berlant! So much fun coming Sun. Jan. 18th - tickets for sale at Eventbrite here.
KILAS will be followed the very next night, Mon. Jan. 19th, by another Comedians & Comedies - we end where we began! What an epic blog post journey! January's C&C will also take place at Mississippi Studios and will feature Willamette Week's Top 5 Funniest Comedian Sean Jordan, plus the genre-defining National Lampoon's Animal House. Don't miss it! Ticket info here.
The sixth installment of Keep It Like A Secret is just around the corner - Mon. Dec. 8th - and we want you to attend so badly that we made a humiliating dance video about it! Reward our shame and buy tickets at Eventbrite - right here!
It's a seriously amazing lineup, including: Steven Wilber (Helium's Funniest Person winner and newly minted Willamette Week Top 5 Funniest), Andie Main (Bumbershoot and more), Whitney Streed (Bumbershoot, Bridgetown Comedy Festival), Nariko Ott (also in the elite Willamette Week Top 5 Funniest), plus a special set with Dan St. Germain in L.A., via Skype! And it doesn't end there: there's also a musical set by Jim Han of Cotton, free beer from Royale Brewing, and raffle prizes. There's no better way to kick off the holidays - please join us! xo
Due to some scheduling shifts, November left me show-free - well, at least free from booking duties! There were still plenty of open mics, as well as the wrapping up of an advanced stand-up class with the fabulous Alex Falcone at ComedySportz. Oh, and in my down time there was plenty of fun with Herb Alpert, The Black Keys, and (soon) Fleetwood Mac. Not bad for a girl from Spokane.
And while November was technically show-free, December will more than make up for it - I've got three huge events on the horizon! First up is up the sixth Keep It Like A Secret showcase (click link for ticket info) at Jackpot! Recording Studio on Monday, Dec. 8th. And it is a killer holiday lineup, featuring: Steven Wilber (Portland's Funniest Person Winner 2014-15), Andie Main, Whitney Streed, Nariko Ott, and a special Skype set with Dan St. Germain in Hollywood! Oh, and as always - me as emcee! But wait, there's more, including: an set from our special musical guest Jim Han (from Cotton), free ale samples from our pals at Royale Brewing Company, prizes, candy canes, and shots (the kind you want). Be sure to join us!
Then on Wednesday, Dec. 17th I'll be back at Turn! Turn! Turn! to help host another fabulous $5 Bill Showcase. You guessed it - it's only $5 and it's super fun. More details on the lineup soon.
And the biggie, just in time for Christmas... it's another Comedians & Comedies (click for ticket info) on Sunday, Dec. 21st at Mississippi Studios, featuring Dan Weber and Bad Santa! For any newbies, Comedians & Comedies is a series featuring live stand-up followed by a comedy film screening. I'm bias, but I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying it's totally awesome! (Totally awesome - the Eighties are back, right? I'm in the safe zone.) And I'm so grateful to have the promotional support from I Heart Radio Media, via 105.9 The Brew and the Willamette Week! What an honor.
So stay tuned! I've already pulled off some serious ninja style booking tricks for January, but I'll save those little tidbits for later. Thanks for your support and see you at the shows! xo
