Bringing Aussie Schtick to the Dat Phan Show

I’m on the next 2 shows with the original winner of Last Comic Standing Dat Phan and I can’t wait. I’ve been lucky enough to host a few of the shows in the last few months and these are both going to be Β fun as well. January 24 and February 28 .. both shows starting at 6pm on Sunday Nights. Perfect timing to actually get a parking spot in Β La Jolla at the Comedy Store and still get home pretty early for your favorite Sunday Night TV πŸ™‚ Just text me to get a hold of $10 tickets for the show. Don’t wait till the last minute – they ALWAYS sell out. No food at the Comedy Store .. just popcorn and yummy cocktails.

I’m headlining Comedy Heights!

I get to headline my favorite show twice a year .. you know it. Comedy Heights. The little show that could πŸ™‚ Comedy Heights was started by Al Gavi and Gina Manning about 5 years ago as a twice monthly show next the coffee at Twiggs in University Heights, and when Gina moved to LA, she recommended me to Al and Al is super smart so he listened to Gina and brought me on as his new partner. We went weekly. Booked some amazing comics and tah dah! 2 years later it’s one of the best shows in town. I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. And now I get to headline and play with some fabulous people I love to work with. Tony Calabrese is my feature … plus some of my UBER good friends Toni Torquato and Gene Levin who run their own show at the Space Bar in La Mesa once a week, and newcomer Danielle Marie Thomas. It’s going to be fun … hope you can join us!


North Coast let’s do this!

The Irvine Improv is an amazing venue, so I hope some people will brave the wet and come out and get some laughs with me and headliner Tony Calabrese. Jim Taylor is a fantastic producer and funny comedian … so I expect it’ll be a FUN NIGHT. $5 at the door πŸ™‚ Come by 700pm to get your food order in. It’s delish!


how lucky can I get?

Some days I just wake up and pinch myself. I get to work with Drew Lynch and Taylor Tomlinson tonight? I’m old enough to be their mother! That’s probably why I’m so proud of how well they are doing in the stand up arena, both making it to the finals of America’s Got Talent and Last Comic Standing, respectively. Comedy isn’t all flailing drunks at a bar, and empty pizza joints on a Tuesday, sometimes it’s working with the best. And that’s the ‘sweetness’.

Taylor Tomlinson at the Palace

I’m so proud to have been the first person to book this amazing young super star as a headliner, and we’re lucky enough to have her headline for our Thursday show at the Comedy Palace this week. When I mean superstar, I mean she’s competing on America’s biggest TV Comedy Competition and that’s all I can say about it right now. She’s touring the country and she’s only 21. We’re talking a lot of hard work and hilariously funny perspectives making this young lady the one to watch πŸ™‚
