I get to headline my favorite show twice a year .. you know it. Comedy Heights. The little show that could 🙂 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!
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 🙂 Come by 700pm to get your food order in. It’s delish!
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’.
Looking forward to the Warriors Fundraiser June 13th at the American Legion Post 731 San Diego. Come and laugh with us 🙂
Drew Lynch is one talented young man. He hasn’t let his speech impediment stop him from being one of the funniest young comedians to watch today. In fact he used it to his advantage to bring laughs like I didn’t know I had in me! He has headlined Comedy Heights at Twiggs and will headline Thursdays at the Comedy Palace this coming week … don’t miss it.
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 🙂
All Females – Every First Thursday … that’s pretty much all there is to remember. Oh that and the fact that one of my absolute favorites .. Anita Milner will be headlining for us in March. She’s a total pro and incredibly funny. The funniest over 70 any place! Message me to get your name on the VIP list to the show at the Comedy Palace. Easy Parking. Easy night of the week. Whoot! Let’s do this.
Reds Wine Bar has been sold and Friday Night Jan 30 will be our final night there for about a month as it undergoes a remodel. We are excited! Help us give Reds a proper ‘Good Bye’ at the last Comedy Heights show at Reds … as I said .. we will be back … but it won’t be ‘Reds’ anymore 🙂
I would tell you about the upcoming show at the Comedy Palace Wednesday .. but the truth is Chris Clobber is so darn brilliant and hilarious I never know what he’s going to come up with. Animal noises, drowning dog sounds, and the kind of humor that got him to Comedy Central I guess. Hope you can make it :)Message me to get on the VIP list.
Flappers Burbank is a fun place to perform … I’ll be there Thursday Jan 29th as part of a ‘Battle of the Sexes’ comedy throw down between the Gals and the Guys. If you haven’t seen Julian Fernandez perform .. he’s only 22 and can do the best Obama we’ve ever heard! Contact me for tickets.
