I’m going to Oakland tonight. I’m going to make sure everyone there knows that I’m more street than they are and I’m probably going to take an Ativan just in case there are riots or Dave Chappelle randomly shows up like he (according to East Bay comedians) did last week.
I’m skeptical. Oakland is known for being a city full of liars. Right? When I think Oakland the first thing that comes to mind is falsified information and white people pretending that they’re poor.
First of all, does anyone have a video of the show ? I usually tape my sets but last night I didn’t, I blame my boyfriend. Because let me tell you what happened. I drank this many beers and proceeded to drunkenly get through my set. Normally I would try to record a set where I’m going to drink and read some notes but I wasn’t planning on doing that. Who plans on getting drunk on PBR in front of 100 people and ask if there are any black people in the audience and then talk about the Autobahn and how not all of Hitler’s ideas were bad. (I still stand by that joke. I made an even better one this morning where the punch line was “the final solution” but you’ll have to come to another show if you want to hear where that gem is headed.)
ANYWAY. Boyfriend said when I opened with my “I’m nervous right now” joke he figured it was going to be “another one of your same boring sets” so he decided not to tape it. My friend Lydia said that people asked her if I was actually pregnant and really that weird in person. The answer to those questions are I hope not and unfortunately. It might be unfortunately and I hope not. Only time will tell.
It was a fun show. I hope Uptown Almanac and The Roxie do it again soon.
