I can't believe we actually went out! NO kids in tow... NO diaper bag to lug around.... I am almost in tears!!! *sob* *sob*
Where of where did you go, you ask! Well, my hubby works with a guy whose wife is a fabulous stand- up comic!! Her name is Maryellen Hooper! (you can check out her website here) She has been on Jay Leno, Comedy Central, and was named Best female stand-up!! Mix 105.1 was hosting an event called Gigglepalooza that was headlining hubby's friend's wife!!! This was an all night laugh fest!! That is just what I needed!! Hubby's friend got us tickets to go and sit right up front! COOL!! Until I realized that this event was also for the purpose of making a DVD and cable show! Yes, we were going to be taped for the show/dvd.... and oh, don't forget that wonderful friend sat us right up front! The MC for the night was Mix105.1's own Scott and Erica!
All three acts were hilarious! It has been a while since I have laughed that hard! I highly recommend it!! They were all three actually pretty tame. Sometimes when you think of comics, you think rude and crude humor!! Not tonight!! It was pretty clean and absolutely hilarious! It was also very amusing listing to Maryellen talk about her husband when you KNOW who "he" is!! If you get a chance to hear Maryellen Hooper, don't miss it! She has a couple of cd's out that you can purchase! As far as the DVD of the show we were at, I will have to get back to you on that one. I imagine it will be called gigglepalooza?!
