It’s about time we collectively gush over Natasha Muse. Last week at High Dudgeon, we watched Vampire’s Kiss, a literal bat-shit movie starring Nicolas Cage. Every. Single. Word. From. Natasha. Absolutely. Killed. Me. Beyond funny. I’m not saying anything that a respectable comedy fan in the Bay Area doesn’t know. Natasha has either killed it, is killing it, or will kill it across sketch, improv, game shows, stand-up, and who knows what else what, until some metaphor involving a long time occurs. I’m not only imploring you to go find her out in the field; I’m saying, when the opportunity presents itself, watch a movie with her because she’s mind-blowingly quick witted.
