Hey everyone, hope you’re having a great weekend and looking forward to the 4th of July!
Had a blast at the Father’s Day show and getting ready for next week’s show at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank on Tuesday, July 7th from 10-11:30p in the Main Room. Come celebrate your Independence Day in true New York style, i.e., make it last 3 days.
As the great comedian, Louie Anderson said, “It takes about 100 performances (Stand-up) to even know if you’re good”. About a dozen and counting Louie!
Peace – R
The great Roseanne Barr once said, “Stand-up is my therapy…I’m just really pissed off!”
Following suit with the “working-class domestic goddess” (perhaps not as pissed off), my new material for this Sunday’s show at Flappers Comedy Club will include jokes about Wall Street, sobriety, Yoga, homeless people, marriage and some recent news that’s ripe for the Get Your Shit Together Award – previously awarded everyday on Tola Talks.
Sunday, June 21st, Father’s Day from 9 – 10:30p in the Main Room of Flappers Comedy Club, located at 102 E Magnolia Blvd. Burbank CA, 91502 (easy and free parking across the street at Ashley Furniture).
Hope to see you there! – R
What’s funny, sexy and exhilarating, that makes you wanna get up and dance?
And if you’re not into musicals or sequels, it really doesn’t matter – go see this film. With an amazing cast led by Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Katy Sagal, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins (who are great together), you’ll be laughing and be-bopping for at least 2 hours.
You already know I’m a big Anna Kendrick fan, but I wasn’t planning on seeing this film in the theaters until my soon-to-be 16 year-old niece said she loved it. And since I’m always intrigued when movie-goers of any age tell me they love a film…I went and loved it too. With so many great actors and so many great one-liners (no kidding, they’re great), this cool hipster musical touches the soul and makes you really wanna get up in the aisles and dance!
Kudos to Elizabeth Banks on her directorial debut. Excellent job Elizabeth, plus you’re charming, sexy, witty, ditzy and wonderful as the no-holds barred announcer, Gail. I liked Pitch Perfect 2 so much that if I were reviewing it on Tola Talks, I’d give it 2 thumbs (out of 3).
Like I said, go see this film and bring your teenagers, it’s PG-13. And for some really good live comedy this week-end, come check-out my Stand-up show this Saturday, May 23rd from 7:30-9p in the YooHoo Room at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank. CA. It’s gonna be a blast!
P.S. Don’t leave the movie theater until the credits have rolled or you’ll miss Christina Aguilera and the gang from The Voice.
Tola Talks about the Top 10 Common Foods You Didn’t Know Were Genetically Modified. Plus, a special Happy Birthday shout-out to Mom and RIP shout-outs to Sam Simon, co-creator of The Simpsons, and the 10 victims of the survival-themed French Realty show, Dropped.
