Oh, yeah - it's a new month. The month of love. Or, if you're like me - the month of really not caring about the month of love, but you find that you and your husband have been invited to a really kick-ass party that happens to fall on Valentine's Day. And you're both like, "Wait, we don't celebrate Valentine's Day. But now that we've accidentally planned something on V-Day... well, we're kind of excited for V-Day." But only because it involves going to the coast and drinking a shitload of dark beers. We're not total assholes. 

By the way, did you note my restraint in not using an exclamation point in the header? Well, did you?! Damn it. I almost made it...

Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. It's time to list some killer comedy shows!

First up: It's subtle. It's couch potato-esque. It's live-Tweeting! Yes, Larry and I will be a peanut gallery of two and we will be Tweeting about the Grammys this coming Sunday, February 8th. If you don't think that falls under "comedy," just wait until Larry tries to spell Beyonce's name. Follow along! For Larry here and for myself here

Next: I'm super excited to announce that I've been asked to partake in the fabulous Spilt Milk Showcase in Multnomah Village, hosted/conceived/curated by the wonderful duo of Joanie Quinn and Betsy Kauffman on Tuesday, February 17th. More details to follow, but I believe you can buy tickets here. Don't delay - these shows sell out every time!

And finally, the piece de resistance, our eighth Keep It Like A Secret on Wednesday, February 18th! You don't want to miss this one, it's an amazing lineup that includes: 

Nathan Brannon (Winner of the 35th Annual Seattle International Comedy Competition), Danny Felts ( Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Spicy News), Robbie Pankow (world's foremost Miley Cyrus fan), and Christen Manville (comedy gold).

And, as if that isn't enough, we'll also have a very special guest, via Skype - Mr. Mike Lawrence (@midnight, the Comedy Central Half Hour, Conan, Seth Meyers, WTF with Marc Maron, You Made It Weird with Pete Holms, Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and much, much more)!

Shake your money-maker - these shows also sell out, so grab your tickets now! Right here, at Eventbrite (further show details, including time and location, in this handy link you're about to click on). 

See you at the shows! xo

Sometimes I feel physically incapable of leaving the exclamation point off of anything - and apparently 2015 will be no different. I will give up bread - but I will not give up my exclamation points! Ride excited or die! I should've been a cheerleader. Seriously, how was I not a cheerleader?! I even had the thigh gap as a teen. What a waste. Alas - time has moved us all on, so let's get going on what matters...


Lots of fun events coming up, per usual, so get those calendars marked up! First off is another fabulous Keep It Like A Secret on Sunday, January 18th - our seventh in the series - and this one is gonna be rock-n-roll fabulous! The lineup features Herman Jolly (of Sunset Valley), Hutch Harris (of The Thermals), Bri Pruett (co-host of Late Night Action and more ), and Susan Rice (PDX treasure and comedy legend), plus Kate Berlant (she of the NY Times profile and so many amazing comedy superstar events that you should really click here to get the full list) via Skype! The fun doesn't stop there - our beer sponsor, the generous crew at Royale Brewing, are returning to gift show-goers with free ale samples (the "samples" happen to be in 16 oz cups) and the event takes place at the super cool Jackpot! Recording Studio. You don't have to blow your budget on a pricey recording session - kick it like a rockstar for only $10! Show info and tickets here at Eventbrite. You don't wanna miss it!


And the very next night, it's another epic Comedians & Comedies at Mississippi Studios on Monday, January 19th! This round brings us Willamette Week's Top 5 Funniest comic, Sean Jordan, with a screening of the comedy classic National Lampoon's Animal House. But wait - there's more! Doors open at 7 PM, with a free photo opportunity - take a pic with beloved comedian Adam Pasi in a toga, complete with smashed guitar - naturally. Plus the first 10 people to arrive get a free box of dried mashed potatoes - make your own food fight! All this for only $8 - a bargain for so many laughs. Details and tickets here. Thanks again to my longtime sponsors at I Heart Radio Media for the promotional support - I Heart you guys! 

Happy 2015 - see you at the shows! xo

Oh... I went there. I had to!

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

Sadamantium203x203.jpgThen 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 this link 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.
