Sadness is like a bad restaurant that’s always open.
I have to continually tell myself: “stock up the happy fridge”. “Put things in it that you value… like exercise, friendship, a full calendar of shows” etc. Otherwise, I lose myself. And then smash-cut to me, at that shitty diner, eating that same shitty sadness sandwich at 2am.
It’s time for another RUMBLE STRIP, the comedy and storytelling show where musicians and stand-ups share their weirdest tales from life on the road.
Last time we had the Wu-Tang Clan’s Masta Killa and Andrew WK. Tonight, we go DOUBLE MARNIE:
Guests are guitar god MARNIE STERN (Kill Rock Stars) and world-famous Instagram dog MARNIE (300,000 followers and counting).
Our comedians are Paul Hooper, Adam Newman and other special guests. It’s FREE and it’s AWESOME. Come on down.
We call them phones but I haven’t made a call on this thing in 2 years. Let’s call them what they are: binkies.
“I’m playing the long game.” (- long jumper)
“Tough cloud.” (- Stand-up comic in heaven)
How awful are the Palins? It says a lot when the best behaved member of your family is a six year old with Down Syndrome.
I be am good at writey jokes.
I love how this vital job – teaching – is everyone’s fall-back career. “Yeah, if the dreams don’t pan out, I can always mold young minds into permanent shape.”
Tonight, I perform for Viviana Cortez, a Spicy Cuban Holistic Wellness Counselor from Miami, who conducts improvised therapy sessions live onstage. She’s good friends with Ali Levin. If you’re in the East Village this evening, come by. I guarantee it will get weird. (Details: http://goo.gl/MNN0gf)
