Week(s) In Review: Funny Fellas, Intellectual Guys and Cute Kids

Rodney Perry, a funny & intelligent guy.

Skip this if you're looking to hear crazy dating stories. Just a little review of some spots and events we've attended in the last couple of weeks.

First up: Friday Night at the Comedy Union

Not since Def Comedy Jam have I laughed like I laughed in this place. For $10 and a 2 drink minimum (read: $25) I chuckled until I literally drooled during the stand-up performances of host Rodney Perry and the gang of comedians that took the stage...And no I am not on any heavy medications...Those dudes were just hilarious!!!

Second Up: The FlyPoet Showcase

One true standout for me and his name is Ise Lyfe. I've heard this kid around town when I was in Oakland (the place we both call "home") but what he did with words on that LA stage left me absolutely breathless. He was the only poet that night to receive a standing O--even Malcom Jamal Warner (who closed the night) didn't do that. It was only right that I dug into my pockets (deep I might add) at the end of the show to purchase his $10 CD.

Urban Kidz Film Festival

It was such a nice feeling to take our two little cousins Ashley & Kayla along for the ride at The Urban Kidz festival. We laughed and giggled at the various short films that were screened and Kayla got to see ABA Episode 1 for the first time. Nobody got to see Episode 2, however, as a projector issue prevented it from being accessible from the DVD menu. Two lessons learned: Ashley hates to loose raffles. Purple Fur Coats are cool.
