"Tinder: A dating site where people who just want to have casual sex meet up with people looking for long, committed relationships. They meet up for coffee and two people leave unsatisfied."

Chris Thayer @ Cobb’s Comedy Club [Paraphrase]

Favorite Things of Last Night: Amy Miller

[Amy Miller, performing this weekend at Cobb’s Comedy Club, is an anomaly. I last caught her set in April opening for Henry Phillips—scampy singer-songwriter—at the Punch Line. Prior to that, a long lull. That night, at the Punch Line, she was exceptionally funny, crisp, professional, and performed within herself (i.e. poised and keen). Then, last night at Cobb’s, in an uncannily short turnaround, she was even funnier. This clip is a great example of who Amy is and what Amy does (and it’s glorious to the senses). Check it out and share if you’re down with the get down]
