  • Justify Your Love with T.J. Hurley (December 21, 2018) A Good Good Comedy Theater comedy game show where contestants defend their love for a truly terrible song against a panel of very judgey judges. Was my alleged bad taste and love for Shalamar’s Take That to the Bank validated or villainized? Only the live audience knows for sure.
  • The Comments Section Standup & Storytelling (November 25, 2018) A monthly show hosted by the lovely and talented Nicole Phoenix, which features some of the funniest people around, all of whom happen to be be *checks notes* women of color and colorful women.
  • Tell Me a Story (14 minutes / May 2018) More about Tammy, that murderous bitch.
  • Wolf Humanities Center’s Rebirths, Comebacks, and Returns Story Slam  (starts at 16:17 minutes / March 2018) The Wolf Humanities Center’s first ever story slam featured stories told in both spoken English and American Sign Language. In keeping with the Wolf Humanities Center’s 2017-18 theme of Afterlives, and to mark the arrival of spring, the stories told of rebirths, renewals, and miraculous comebacks. What a great opportunity to tell almost 500 strangers the Cliff Notes version of my murderous eight-pound tumor, Tammy, and her colorful aftermath.
  • PHIT Open Mic (5 minutes / August 2017) It’s baby’s first ‘real’ stand-up set (oh, how I’ve grown), and the audio is predictably meh. But the laughs come through loud and clear.
  • Ignite Philly: Chic Shack (6 minutes / October 2014) I’m building a tiny house on wheels because it’s all I can (barely) afford. But the consensus seems to be that I’m doing it juuuuust to get on people’s nerves. Hijinks ensue!
