Major accomplishment of 2014: performing a 50-minute set of standup comedy
. I was a bit unsatisfied with the conditions, so I didn't go through with my plan of posting the audio as an "album," but I posted the video on YouTube. I may try to re-record it at some point, but I dunno, I'm onto new material, so...we'll see. Anyway, I got some really good responses to this, and I'm quite proud of it, so here it is:
I also recorded eight episodes of Sleestak Lightnin!!!
, the musical podcast that literally no one listens to! So hey, if you want to hear some eclectic tunes and madcap commentary, download some of these
. (Episode 12 is a good starting point.)
And we continue to build the reputation of our venue, Tao Comedy Studio
. We have an open mic every Friday night, a women-only open mic (Laugh Riot Grrrl) every Monday night, a variety of shows and workshops. The feminist-themed Pussy Riot show is starting to pick up a following. We have made it a goal to run a safe space for female comics, and we book the shows and run the mics accordingly. And the space is available to rent for shows, classes, meetings, readings, whatever.
Plus, I got to see Acid Mothers Temple live. So I had a pretty good year.
