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.

"I recently went to South Korea. If you have the chance to be the only black person in a country, do it. Everything I did became a new stereotype… ‘Black people sure like to read.’"
