Some of my "friends" from around the world have claimed that I have never actually performed stand up ever. Well, now I have proof. And to those who claim I have just photoshopped myself onto the Gotham stage, I say, yes, I might have done that but wouldn't I have made an effort to make myself less pixelled? And I'll remind them that even though it remains a sad bullet point on my resume, I haven't actually opened photoshop in years.
My set was on Bastille Day, July 14th. Oh, how I slaved for months to write hilarious Bastille Day jokes and incorporate French references into my set. Apparently, people are humorless about the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison that was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern French nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution. It was 219 years ago, people. It's funny now. Jeez.
Come see me at Caroline's on August 13th. It's my first Caroline's gig and I'm more excited than a French person in 1789.
