Bay2LA: Favorite Things of Last Night: Sean Donnelly @ The Lexington/RiotLA

[I’m finally back to solid ground after a windswept mini-vacation in Southern California. Among all the many sights, hugs and puppy kisses, I’ve witnessed a drowning quaff of stand-up, podcasts and musical comedy at the RiotLA Alternative Comedy Festival. Sean Donnelly is a definite festie-bestie, rising from obscurity to revelation in one set’s time. This clip is a indicator of his talent: an unstoppable wit chugging through the crowd like a bull turning lemons into a mass trampling. Sean Donnelly is officially on the dope list.]

Courting RiotLA: Favorite Things of Last Night: Jon Dore being a king in his goddamn castle. He’s absolutely effortless, buying drinks for audience members, riffing up a mushroom cloud. 
P.S. A lot of dusty comedians at this show due to chalk on the walls and comedians being too cool to maintain good posture.

Bay 2 LA: A Riot LA Preview (Live from I-5)

California is crazy big and insanely spoiled. We used to just have gold, now we have the Internet, which is like printing your own gold. We are smaller than Texas yet we have more sports teams. Our fucking flag has a bear on it. Most importantly, we have at least five distinct comedy scenes, and two (or more?) major alt-comedy festivals (both occurring in the month of January).

I’m currently in between rest stops. Apparently Congress created this Dust Bowl surrounding the car with decay, the perfect backdrop for writing about frivolous abundance. Riot LA is a day away/the second display of emphatic array/with podcasts, talk shows and stand-up galore/legends, upstarts, food trucks and more!
