I just got back from a loooong road trip, which was so much fun. I met so many funny comics and saw a lot of beautiful places. I drove from California and was on a pretty tight schedule to get to Minnesota in time for the 10,000 Laughs Festival. But, I had to make a stop in Denver at Casa Bonita! I can tell if someone is a fan of South Park by their reaction to this news. It was everything I dreamed it would be, and more.
Here it is:
And I met this gorilla:
Well worth the stop
No blog posts in forever. I need to set an alarm or electric shock or something to remind myself to post here.
I just returned from a fun weekend in San Diego - performed at the Comedy Palace and MadHouse Comedy Club with headliner Laurie Kilmartin. She's one of my all time favorites. This was the marquee as I walked up to the club:
I'll be traveling to two comedy festivals in October, The Laughlin LaughFest in Laughlin, Nevada - and then on to the 10,000 Laughs Festival in Minnesota on the 24th. So excited to see friends and family in Minnesota!
Where have I been? Not blogging apparently.
I just got home from my first trip to Arizona. We did shows at two fantastic clubs, the Tempe Improv and Laffs in Tucson. Met some great people there, a few displaced Minnesotans, and had a really fun time.
Before that, I've been spending more time in LA. I booked two commercials, yay, but I'm not sure if they will be seen by anyone here :)
One is for Korean TV, and the other may just be online. I'll post links if/when I get them.
After that, I auditioned for the celebrity judges on America's Got Talent! I can be seen here, at the beginning of this clip, talking backstage with Rachel Butera (who did great btw)
So I have proof that I was ...
I've had an amazing couple of days down here in Southern California.
I got two pieces of great news as I was driving into town: I found out that I got a set at the Chocolate Sundaes show at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, and I was cast in a commercial for Intel.
I actually got to do two sets at the Laugh Factory which was so much fun. Always a great show with fantastic crowds. Go see Chocolate Sundaes, you won't be disappointed.
Then on Monday we taped the commercial. I got to play a bitchy wife - I know, what a stretch! Pretty sure I nailed it :) It should be online soon, I'll post the link as soon as I have it.
Back to NorCal today - but I'll be back down here next month for a show at the Comedy Store. ...
Sad news about Sammy's owner:
I only knew Steve for a short time, but he was very kind, great to work with, and was a big fan of comedy. We will miss him.
Just finished a show for the military men and women at the Presidio in Monterey. So much fun. It's always an honor to do a show for the military and they have been some of my favorite audiences. I met some people here who had been stationed in Okinawa - they weren't there for my shows - but they had seen some of my comedy friends who had also traveled to Japan. It was nice to hear that they enjoyed getting comedy while over there.
Monterey is one of my favorite places in California. We've taken a lot of family trips here, but this is the first time here on my own.
It's a beautiful day - so I'm off to do a little exploring.
