Wow - last time I wrote an entry here, the leaves were beautiful, bright colors, the season was young, the possibilities were endless, and we hadn't yet elected a talking sheep's bladder to serve the county as Tweeter-in-Chief. Oh, those innocent, heady days!
The only tarnished silver lining to this terrible pit of doom is myriad opportunities for comedy, and boy, have I been taking advantage of it! In October, I was thrilled that Buzzfeed included one of my jokes in a fantastic list of feminist humor.
I'm ALSO now hosting a great new mic at The Experiment Comedy Gallery! Topical Humor Mic is a biweekly standup & storytelling mic with a different prompt for each week. We're up the first and third Saturdays of the month at 9:30. Next one's Saturday the 17th - come join us!
It's been a long time since I've updated this with shows (oops), so instead of giving you the usual retrospective, I'll just let you know what's coming up this week: first, I'm doing This is CNN at The Experiment tonight. It's current events comedy, because the news just isn't funny enough lately. On Wednesday, I get to do the Quip Cup Tournament with Play You Guys!! It's an honor to participate, and I hope to bring home the cold, or at least crack a few funnies. You'll be able to join in and watch digitally - I'll tweet a link Wednesday evening!
Finally, I've been doing a little writing: I've got a new piece about the Clinton email investigation up at The Whiskey Journal, and I've also got a piece up at the New Yorker, which I'm low-key thrilled about.
So yeah, I'd say that my apocalypse is going just fine!
