Tell Me A Story: Frozen(January 16, 2019) Hillary Rea graciously invited me back to the first TMAS storytelling event of 2019, where I somehow managed to jam elementary school plays, brain farts, baby-talking presidents, stand-up, and fascist dictatorships into my interpretation of the night’s theme — frozen.
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!
