Changed into this Nats t-shirt after I got off stage tonite, and an audience member asked me if I used to work at Walgreens. I was like, “Huh?” And she said, “Your shirt… Walgreens, right?” Not sure how I never realized it was almost the same daggone logo. I wanted to be mad at her, but I so couldn’t. #TeamCVS
HEY, ARE YOU EITHER A WOMAN OR A MAN? ARE YOU EITHER STRAIGHT OR GAY? DO YOU LIKE FUN AND HATE SHOWS THAT SUCK?
YES? Then I’ve got the perfect show for you!
I will be a part of a really awesome show taking place in the DC Improv Lounge July 9th and 10th. One of my ABSOLUTE BEST comedy friends and Last Comic Standing roommate, Erin Foley (Comedy Central Presents Half Hour Special, Last Comic Standing, Almost Famous), and her friend Jason Dudey (LOGO) are bringing their nationally touring show “COME OUT LAUGHING: Some Gay, Some Straight, All Hilarious” to the Baltimore and DC areas.
Here’s a short press release about the show:
‘COME OUT LAUGHING’ COMES TO BALTIMORE AND DC
Stand Up Comedy Show Uses Humor To Build Bridges Between Gay And Straight
06.28.2010 – Los Angeles, CA – Next week, local DC-area comedy clubs will play host to ‘Come Out Laughing,’ a show featuring both gay and straight comics playing at Magooby’s in Baltimore, MD on July 8, and in Washington, DC on July 9 and 10 at the DC Improv Lounge.
“Bringing everyone together to laugh with no other agenda. Isn’t that what we all need right now?” asks Jason Dudey, who co-created ‘Come Out Laughing’ in 2008 along with fellow comedian Erin Foley. Now a regular monthly show at the world famous Laugh Factory Comedy Club in Long Beach, California, ‘Come Out Laughing’ features some of the hottest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and straight comics in the country, with countless appearances on Showtime, Comedy Central and HBO.
The show’s rave reviews have fueled a nationwide tour, with sold-out stops at local clubs and theaters across the country. Performing alongside Jason and Erin as part of the Washington DC show is popular local comedian, Erin Jackson, well known for her appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Last Comic Standing. Says Jackson, “I’m really looking forward to this event, though I recognize how hard it can be as the one ‘different’ person on a show like this… I just hope Jason isn’t too self conscious about not being named Erin.” In Baltimore, Foley and Dudey are joined by Zach Toczynski, a gay comic based in DC who hosts a monthly showcase at Titan Bar.
“I love the concept of this show,” says Foley. “I’d like to think we’ve gotten beyond the idea of gay and straight as opposite things. We’re all just living our lives. And life can be hilarious, no matter who you are.”
