You All Need to come to this Show!

I’m hosting the sneak preview of Kevin Seaman’s one person show brilliantly titled #femasculine. Kevin Seaman is one of the most exciting and entertaining artists in the Bay Area. Not only do they work it on stage, they are also incredibly smart, entertaining, and work their butts off to support other queer artists in the city. We’ve been through thick and thin together, performance art workshops, Perverted Mime Videos, impromptu sex parties, shows at museums, theaters, bars, cabarets, other dimensions with with the mystic all powerful Zebrovski! And now I get to host his SHOW!

His show description goes like this “Can you be genderqueer in the streets and a man in the sheets? Can you solve racism through hook-up apps? Can drag be the antidote to toxic masculinity? …and if so, will you ever get laid after doing it? In the binary world of gay men, Kevin Seaman wants it all!” Get your tickets now to see Kevin’s show by clicking HERE!

I will be hosting and doing an opening reading of poetry. See you all there, hopefully! Oh Oh! She also takes great pics! CHECK OUT HIS AWESOME INSTGRAM HERE!

#femasculine June 21st at Brava Theatre 7:30, Tickets only $15!

I’m Doing a Solo Show!!

Okay so I’m doing a solo show. I am first concentrating on a preview performance that I want all of you to come to, so you can give me your feed back, and I can use it to finish the work and do the final performance. I’ve working pretty hard on this script, the show, and everything really for a long time. It’s been tough. Cause I have a day job, and I’m still performing as a storyteller, spoken word, poet, and stand up here and there.

I am super grateful though to have the opportunity to be making this show, and I’m very thankful to all the folks that have helped me be able to do this. The show is titled “Love in the Time of Piñatas” it written and performed by me, directed by Evren Odcikin and will have it’s one night only preview performance at Brava Theatre June 20th at 7:30 PM. I really really hope you all can come.

CROTCH HEAT, it’s getting hot in here

I’m guest hosting Write Club SF! So of course the title of this month’s show is CROTCH HEAT!

CrotchHeatBanner

I’ve been a fan of this show for a long time, then I had the pleasure of writing for it and competing two or three times, I can’t remember, and it was a blast! 6 writers, go head to head, in a battle with their words! I wrote one of my funniest short stories because of this show and I feel it is a GREAT way to get people to enjoy literary talent, and challenge writers to write new shit!

Now don’t get me wrong, I have actually always loved Valentine’s day, but aaaall my friends hate it, they hate it so much, they freak the f out every year, so in honor of their deep hatred, instead of having the February show be Romance themed, I decided to make the writers explore the themes of doing the deed, going all the way, fornicatin’, sexy time, bumping uglies, gettin’ nasty, because fuck Valentines Day.

Our participating lovers: Julian Shendelman, Na’amen Tilahun, Mandy Hu, Zoe Young, Kay Nilsson and Damian Ledbetter!

3 rounds of 2 writers going head to head over a pair of opposing topics with 7 minutes each—7 MINUTES ONLY—to sway the crowd.

The bouts:

FIST vs. FINGER,

SPIT vs. SWALLOW,

TOP vs. BOTTOM. (Because these words are neglected by drugstore love plushes.)

Audience picks the winner. Winner’s charity gets money!

At The Make Out Room 3225 22nd Street in SAN FRANCISCO!

$5-15 Pay what you can
21+ cash bar, ATM available
Doors at 7pm — Show at 8pm
Baby-Makin’ Slow Jamz by 9:30

I Saw The Sign

I do actually believe in signs. 11888081_10152947960331086_2946104523855106699_n

In 2013 I left MagicTheatre, a Nonprofit arts full time with benefits job in sf during our still on going job and housing crisis. Everyone was shocked but I had to give being a full time artist a try. I did. It was a lot harder than I thought and even though I was getting all the great gigs and getting paid and grants and had little side jobs at bookstores, little theatres, scavenger hunts, it was never enough to survive in this expensive city. So I decided to give up and get a full time job again, I thought, I’ll again put art on the side and get a full time job. But no one would hire me. No one. So I kept trying to be a full time artists and kept trying to get a full time job. And every month, I was barely paying my rent. After eons of applying I was about to lose everything so I got this job as a janitor to make ends meet. On my first day, I saw this sign, right next to the building where my new janitor job was, it seemed like a symbol of fitting doom. But this job helped me survive. It gave me the flexibility to keep being an artist. I was never ashamed even when my own friends looked down on me. “Didn’t you go to college?” “Janitor? Are you joking? Ew.” I’ve never been afraid of hard work. Didn’t give up. After nine months of working as a janitor, and seeing that Dead End sign, every day, I kept applying and applied for a nicer job that I did not think I was going to get, and GOT IT!.

Yesterday Friday August 28 2015 was my last day at janitor job. I hugged and thanked my soon to be former boss (cause he is lovely) and said see you around. Left the place, looked at this sign. Took a picture. Blew it a kiss and walked away.

It is never a dead end you guys. I start my new job next week.

Oh and I’m still an artist, I want to see all of you at my next show TENDER BEARS/OSOS AMOROSOS at Oasis SF Thursday the 3rd! at 10pm!! A fun night of DRAG, MUSIC, COMEDY, AND MORE!!! Buy your tickets Here
