HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERNIE
Characters: Two girls standing above the dance floor
Girl 1: I’ll go over.
Girl 2: WAIT! We have to make sure he sees you first. Does he see you?
Girl 1: STOP LOOKING!
Characters: Friends on the balcony
Her: How’s the trolling?
Him: Eh. It doesn’t matter anyway. All these people are from Oakland, I’m never going to see them again.
Her: What? San Francisco is, like, 20 minutes outside Oakland.
THEY CALL YOU WHAT?
Do you live in the Bay Area? Go see Harmon Leon in “They Call Me Shitshoes!” It is a laff riot! Well, about three quarters of it is a laff riot, the rest is better if you’ve had a beer. Anyway, it’s a one-man show by this writer (his work has appeared in Salon, Details, and Maxim) who travels around and goes to weird conventions. My favorite bit is about a Christian ventriloquist convention in San Diego, which he visits with his dummy “Mr. Cocksucker.” It amused me greatly, you will like it:
