I’m performing at the Purple Onion for better or worse it’s happening August 28th. Still a lot to do and a lot to talk about but I’m obliged to tell you why I’m so optimistic about my show. As I’ve written about before I’m featured on a show with two of my favorites on the scene: Jabari Davis and Melanie O’Brien. In addition to those style giants, my show also features three gentlemen whom I personally know and immensely respect.
I saw Joey Bragg at the BrainWash and he immediately bowled me over. A prodigy of sorts, cool, crispy, smooth and delivering gems of a bygone era (my adolescents). I admire the ire he and inspires and the deserved recognition of being talented first and a youngster second.
Eric is cool. He hosts an open mic in North Beach at the Impala Lounge where I’ve been featured a few times. His work ethic is to be respected and his cadence/tone is intriguing to watch. He also references pro-wrestling in his act so I have to give it up to him for that.
Bryan Moore is our “Special Guest”. I just saw him at Pissed of Pete’s and I can personally attest to his goofy charm and grandeur. Plus he’s also a good dude off stage. Bryan and Jabari are going to be a dramatic one-two punch to end my show.
So there you have it folks. I know everybody on the bill. I like everybody on the bill. We all compliment each other and overall create the best card out of the entire weekend.

Right up the street from the Five Funny Females Festival (ALLITERATION!) is a celebration of sorts. Comedy is like being a 20-something privelaged white chick. Your birthday can last a whole week.
At the Impala Lounge, Mr. Eric Murphy is hosting an event in honor of recent birthdayist: Nicole Turley and Nina G. I think there will be stand-up. I KNOW there will be cake.
