What a great week… and its only Wednesday! Monday I did absolutely nothing. It was fabulous… And last nite was the DC regional semifinal for the HBO Comedy Festival Lucky 21 Contest at the DC Improv. Good bud Vince Morris was down as well as a bunch of other really hilarious comics. Everyone did 5-6 minute sets — which are the great equalizer and now the decision of which 3 of us go to Vegas is up to internet voters. I hadÂ a pretty good set. Can’t wait to see the tape. If you are reading this please, please, please visitÂ ziddio.com/thelucky21 and vote for me from Sept. 10 – 16.Â Top 3 vote getters from each region get to go to Vegas… Help a sista out!!!
Tonite the Myspace.com Secret Standup Tour hit DC. It was also held at the DC Improv. I opened the show and the headliner was D.L. Hughley. Basically the first 285 people that got in line with printouts of their myspace profiles got in for free. And maaaan, if it wasn’t one of the best crowds I’ve ever performed for… The room was electric. It was amazing. Met the president of Myspace Comedy as well as a bunch of other folks. D.L. was great.Â He watched my set and gave me some really awesome advice after the show. (See photo below — my eyes are closed as I am absorbing it all :) Many many thanks to Allyson and John and Red and Michelle and the staff at the Improv for all the love they always show me. This was an awesome nite.
Oh and BTW, did I tell you to vote Sept. 10-16 at ziddio.com/thelucky21? Yes? OK, then be sure to do it. I’m trying to go to Vegas y’all!
