Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

The show goes on

I have moved the videos of some of my standup comedy to YouTube. They were originally posted at, but it seems that they're no longer there. The problem with moving them is that the first one exceeded YouTube's 10 minute limit, therefore I had to break it into two pieces. (And no, that wasn't a blatant attempt at upping the number of my videos.) So to keep y'all in the loop, the YouTube links are below:

2002 - Part 1

2002 - Part 2

2004 - Part only

Now that I've been doing this for a while, there are a couple more videos out on my YouTube site.

    I'm having a hard time hearing a lot of it. The sound ain't so great.

    How long have you been doing standup? How'd you get started? (I think about doing it myself sometime, mostly because the thought of it scares me to death).

    Yeah, I know the audio and the video on these sucks, but they were shot with a handheld camera with no direct mic input, just ambient. I've tried to clean up the audio as best I can (nobody cares much about the video) but GIGO. Sorry.

    I started doing standup in 1995, essentially for the reason you listed - I'd always wanted to but was scared to do so. Long story short, I finally just did it: I wrote up about 10 minutes of material in the afternoon, kinda/sorta memorized it and then performed it that evening. Got lotsa laughs - but then I always do. OK, to be honest, I've walked off stage once knowing that I'd probably have gotten more laughs if I'd just gone out and shit on the stage. But just that once.

    Your little black dress and Moulin Rouge walk makes you an official Hoochie Mama. I'll get your award...a plastic tiara missing a coupla stones and a pack of Virginia Slims... in the mail immediately.

    BTW, according to your "You might be transgender" test, I am. I thought that might be a penis in my pocket but figured maybe I was just glad to see myself.

    (I have that last little about the ride you talked about on a wooden plaque in my office!)

    Thanks! I've always wanted a tiara since Jen got one. The Virginia Slims? I think I've still got a pack of menthols somewhere from when I quit smoking in 1984 - just in case I got really desperate and just HAD to have one more.

    Well, I admire your courage. Some day I'll get up the guts.

    I just LOVED the last one! I couldn't hear the first one so gave up and went straight to the third. I curled up with my freshly painted toenails, G&T and giggled away.

    You got yourself a new girlfriend honey, whether you wanted me or not.

    I really wish I could improve the sound. Try listening to it with headphones instead of speakers.

    And whether I wanted you or not, I'm glad I got you!
