Today we celebrate the birthday of the lovely Lydia Popovich, comedian and hater extraordinaire.  Comedy has injected a number of awesome people into my life and Lydia on the plateau of that list. Precise, charming and boisterous; Lydia onstage is alluringly sarcastic. Off stage she’s been supportive and endearing. I look back fondly at sharing disparaging banter about the hippie/hipsters at Golden Gate Park for Outside Lands Fest. I also look forward to further friendship & fandom of Lydia Popovich.
Happy Birthday Lydia!

Andrew Holmgren by. Nicole Salmeri

[A happy birthday goes to one Andrew Holmgren. I still remember the first time seeing him, a part of a pack called “the Opposite of Canada”. He has since matured into a respectable, hard working, and very talented comedian crafting some of the most cleverly compact comedy in the scene. For instance:

There are a lot of stereotypes out there. My favorite is Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound

His wit is overarching, pushed through a pot-prism. He’s got a good mind for the business too, running the comedian lounge, house of anecdotes called “23 Club”. All in all, he’s a cool guy. So raise your chocolate milk to Mr. Andrew Holmgren. Happy Birthday!]
