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.

Thanks!

This year has been a challenge and it’s not over yet.  I just wanted to thank everyone who came out to shows, visited my website and hit like on my videos and such.  The Boston Comedy Festival was great and I had even more fun at the non-contest shows. Traveling with Mark Walton, Rick Matthews and Shaun Murphy was extra special and no matter what happens between us, we will always have Union Square Donuts.

Here are some updates to my schedule:

November 24th – Hard Day Comedy: Dirty Girls Theme Show, 9pm Toronto, ON

December 6th – West End Girls, Comedy Bar, Toronto, ON

October: Come See These Special Shows!

I am back from LA (it’s ridiculous there!) and have a whole bunch of special shows lined up.  This week it’s The Gypsy Parlour on Thursday and then Homewrecker Comedy at MacGruder’s in Lancaster.

10/15 is the Breast Friends show at Helium Comedy Club. If you are going to exploit a tragic disease, might as well have fun, right? (j/k!)

10/19 is Madeline Smith’s Rage Against the Vageen show at the Comedy Club in Webster. Let be frank, all “all lady” shows are angry lady shows.

10/22 – the Dirty Show @ Helium Comedy Club – Fucking pumpkins is funny.

10/30 – To be determined – it’s a mystery Halloween show at Helium!

10/30, 10/31 & 11/1 – hosting for Wendy Liebman @ Helium

I’m excited about all of these shows because they will be be with a ton of other funny people.  The mystery show on 10/30 is the Halloween show where some of the areas best comics will perform in costume as a famous comic. I will post more as details are available.

I’ve Got Your New Derby Name Here

Roller Derby season is starting to ramp up again in Western New York and I want to show my support by offering up these brand new skater names. I know there is a movement to get rid of the aliases but nobody is afraid to skate against a Lisa. A Pam maybe, but never Lisa. I would also like skaters to start wearing masks like Mexican wrestlers. Extra 50 points if there is a zipper over the mouth.

Here we go for old times sake:

1. Slay Z Susan
2. Amputeena
3. Malcolm XY
4. Old White Lady
5. R2 D2manytattoos
