Cover Up

Get ready!

June 27th Chicks and Giggles Show

Was awesome as always! I didn't get a shot of our good friend Rachael Parenta who opened the show, but I did get a shot of Claire Wyckoff's tummy/penis greeting. Talk about caring enough to send the very best...

A major shout Top Left to our super-cute, mad cool hipster fans! Love you guys for always coming out. Center you see the brilliant Kimmy Gatewood, Top Right we have the hilarious "monologuist" Sara Schaefer, Center Left the always on point Lisa Harmon... penistomach... Center Right the hysterical Margaret Dodge.
Be there July 11th so you can be in our next picture square!
NO SHOW JULY 4TH, Y'ALL. As Rachael Parenta says, "If it wasn't for the French helping us win the Revolutionary War, we'd all be speaking English right now."


College Collage

Here's a melee of audience shots from our gig at Roanoke:

Did I mention it was on St. Patrick's Day?

It's so gratifying to look at these pictures because as you can see, our show resonates with many different types of people and unites them through laughter. That's just the best feeling in the world. It's cheesy to be sentimental, I know, but I love it!

Once again, thanks to Brendan Bush and Picasa for making the collage happen!



It's been a while since we've posted, mostly because things have been going so well and we've been so busy! But let me try to give you a little recap of the past few weeks:

RAP ATTACK was amazing. The crowd was great and the performances were stellar. Big ups to The Lesbian Overtones, The Pearl Brunswick, Adira Amram, Badlands Booker and Negin Farsad, who filmed the show for her documentary, "Nerdcore Rising." You can view the trailer here.

DADDY'S GIRL was a fantastic affair filled with ladies who love their fathers. Our reading nights are always a smash, so we'll be sure to hold another one soon!

Last Tuesday's show was HUGE - Sadie's Lounge was so packed that it smelled like a 16 year old boy's bedroom by the end of the night. Major laughs were given and received. Kudos to Adira Amram, Abbi Crutchfield, Becky Donohue, Jen Dziura, Molly Reisner and Brooke Van Poppelen.

Lastly, I finally uploaded the pictures from our trip to Roanoke College. The full set is here, but these are some of my favorites:

Carolyn Castiglia, Hostess Cupcake.

Katina Corrao

Jenny Rubin

Lianne Stokes

Michelle Buteau

Special thanks to Stephanie Garst for having us and Brendan Bush for the awesome photos!

See you next Tuesday, y'all...


Kid in the Hall

Our good buddy and Riffs and Gigs star Erin Hall (aka Erin and her Cello) has a lovely feature in this week's issue of BACKSTAGE. Check it out here, and go see her show Friday, June 16 at 8 p.m. at Ars Nova!




Chicks dig Badlands! Eric "Badlands" Booker will be our special guest at this Wednesday's Riffs and Gigs: RAP ATTACK. He and I will close the show with a heavy battle of words and wit. Thank God it's not a battle of wings and blue cheese, because no matter how much I love my upstate grub, at 420 pounds, I think that's one battle EBB would win!
