San Francisco Comedy Competition 2015 Semi-Finalist!

Uh, that was a trip. After getting through the preliminary round with a third place finish, we started out the semis with a show in Escondido, CA. It’s all palm trees down there! Then we had a show in Sacramento the next day. Not my best stuff but I pushed through the anxiety and had stronger shows in Livermore and Santa Rosa.

It was an amazing experience and would do it again. Well, I guess it’s back to reality and begging for 2.5 minutes of stage time at open mics.

Special thanks to Peter Greyy (Get well soon!), Pat Burtscher, John Fox, Roger Lizoala, for making it a great event! Also, Santa Rosa has the smartest and best looking people in the world.

Meet Darla, a three-year-old Mastiff in Buffalo, NY that is looking for an awesome family to adopt her this holiday season. Currently she is in a foster program run by the HEART Animal Rescue and Adoption Team. Darla looks so much like one of my own dogs (Akasha – who was a rescue as well, and I’m pretty sure that Darla is a Boerboel just like her) that I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to help her out once I heard her story.

Darla has been adopted and returned twice through no fault of her own (changing circumstances did not allow the families to keep her in the long-term). Right now Darla is staying with a really great foster family, but because of her issues with cats and other animals she has to stay in the heated garage most of the time. The volunteers at HEART and her foster family…
