I love how every time I’ve played Eastside Poetry, I’ve shared the stage with outstanding artists from all forms of spoken word. Thank you for that experience. It’s so cool to be in a different room every time I perform. I do miss the set that looked like if Pink Floyd had a talk show from last month. Regardless of the room, I’m excited for November! I love testing out new material here, as I figure out my next five minutes. Thank you @luisitogarciacomedy for killing as the host, and taking the great pictures. It felt so good to be up there, the crowd was so much fun. I got to perform in front of a kid for the first time in awhile. These parents were really cool about it. Cool enough that I’m guessing he’ll be allowed to stay home from school, and crack open a cold Danimals yogurt while watching The Price is Right tomorrow. Maybe catch a Maury episode, while a guy screams at him to go to college to be a security guard during the commercials. That’s a joke I just now thought of that I will use during the next kid show. #eastsidepoetry#EastLA#LAComic#3ishminutes 🤘🏻🎤🔥
