Our sponsor Feelmore Adult Gallery opened it’s doors February 14, 2011. In celebration of their 3rd anniversary we are throwing a Valentine’s Day Sex-tacular!
Our featured comics will share stories and jokes about love and sex. Bring your hunny, let’s laugh and celebrate. At the end of the night, you the audience will select your most favorite comic. Feelmore Adult Gallery will reward that featured lady with a cash prize. Woo Hoo!!
One of the best ways to spend a Summah weeknight is at a comedy show with your friends. And wouldn’t you know it…we’ve got a SUPER SWEET Summah line up planned for July.
Ladies Lovin’ Summah….
Dhaya Lakshminaranyanan is cute as a button and sharp as a whip. Her intelligent and playful delivery charms audiences every time.
Kimberly Rose Wendt is one half of the producer duo Bitch Slap. She’s focusing her efforts on a big time show in August featuring a few Ladies Love favs and me. Kim is a funny gal in her own right. Come watch her shine.
Priya Prasad is one of the Bay Area’s best. She’s bold, she’s beautiful and she’s fucking funny. If she made shirts that read “Priya is my Homegirl” they would sell out instantly.
Corie Gipson recently reminded me that about two years ago after a show at the San Jose Improv, my mom said to Corie, “Keep it up, you did great!” Corie heeded my mom’s advise and now she’s even greater. I’m so happy to have her back at the Layover. Hopefully she’ll tell you all about the time she punched a bitch in the face. Oh and my mom is a prophet.
And guest sets from….
Rachel Scoot This young lady dropped in and watched the last few months of Ladies Love shows. She’s newish to the scene so I’m excited to see what she does.
Smita Venkatintroduced herself to me last month at Ladies Love and said she met Janine Brito in Tokyo and she recommended us. Janine Brito is one of the greatest human beings alive so I had to give Smita a set.
And of course, I will be your host, Lydia Popovich guiding you through the glistening comedic waters on a hot summah night.
Here I am represented by this picture of my mom jumping out of an airplane. That’s how you have a fucking summah. (Technically this was in PRE-summah but I think she deserves extra credit)
Fun fact — I’m headlining a show at The Punch Line on 7.23.13. It features the dynamic Marcella Arguello as the host and a bunch of boys who I love but won’t be mentioned here because this is a web page for women by women. Buy Tickets.
The Ladies loved the shit out of the Punch Line this week. Know that.
We’re back home at The Layover Tuesday June 11.
This month we’ve got a great mixture of Ladies Love favorites and first timers!
Featured Ladies …
Miss Nina G is one one of the nicest gals you’ll ever meet. She’s a legit pinball wizard. She is so very talented and has amazing hair. Therefore I hate her. Juuuuust kidding. I love her. That’s why she’s back to entertain you again.
Mimi Vilmenay is America’s Sweetheart. The prettiest girl at the ball. The girl, girls want to be and the girl guys want to be IN. She’s also foul mouthed, sarcastic and almost always inappropriate. But most importantly she’s really, really pretty.
Loren Kraut is a mutherfucking gangster and don’t you ever, ever, EVER fucking forget that shit cuz. On the real, she’s mad misunderstood. Fools think she some OCD lesbian but DON’T NOBODY KNOW what’s really real cause on the real….bitch gets REAAAAL.
Zahara Noorbakhsh In addition to having stunningly long lashes Zahara Noorbakhsh has a name I just know is going to be fun to say loudly into a microphone. She’s a clever, intelligent storyteller. Aren’t you lucky you get to see her for free!
Aly Jones When scouting around for new talent amongst my peers this young lady came up quite a few times so I figured we should invite her over to share the love. Love her won’t you?
Emily Van Dyke enjoys rubber duckies, lounging dudes and sunglasses in the pool. I applaud her. She seems like the kind of gal who really appreciates the importance of Summah. That goes a long way with me.
And of course I will be your host….Lydia Popovich represented this week by the bewildered eyes and wig of the incredible Theresa Caputo.
That’s right! We are back at the amazing Layover Tuesday May 14th with a stellar line up.
Ladies Loving the Layover….
Allison Mick is a fresh face and voice on the comedy scene. It’s lovely to see a young lady swashbuckling through the treacherous seas of humor here in the Bay Area. Give her your heart and your laughs!
Jenn Dronsky is adorable. Her unique sense of style sets her apart from the rest of the sartorially handicapped comedians. See what she’s wearing on May 14 when she joins us again to love the Layover.
Pippi Lovestocking is an American treasure. We are lucky that she lives right here in the Bay Area. She’s the poster gal for the City Clinic AND she has amazing jokes.
Chris Burns like the logo says, she’s hella thick n’ cute. She’s also hella fuckin’ funny. I’m thrilled to have her back.
Aaaand our headliner…..
Liz Grant is one of the funniest ladies I know. Straight up. She helped me fix a joke that has now become one of my favorite bits. Her humor is transcendent. Come get high on her comedy (even though she doesn’t do that any more) and see what I’m talking ‘bout.
Aaaand I’m back as your vivacious host Lydia Popovich represented here by this picture of Dolly Parton holding a kitty because I love kitties especially orange ones and let’s face it…DOLLY IS THE PRETTIEST ONE EVER.
Join us for laughs and drinks. Show is free. Drinks are on you. Tips welcomed & appreciated.
Kelly is the fucking best. THE BEST. I can’t say enough good things about this incredibly funny woman. She’s the head writer at Hobo Pancakes, the wonder woman behind Femikaze, host of Up Yours, Downstairs podcast, the host of Monday night comedy at Farley’s East aaaand can get her husband to be the Peggy to her Joan on Halloween. I mean come on. Leave some room for the rest of us to underachieve. Dang.
Clare O’Kane has something special. Something that other girls don’t have. It’s really HARD to put your finger on it without just wanting to wrap your hands around it and tug. It’s dark. It’s mysterious. Discover the mystery & wonder next Tuesday.
Karinda Dobbins is a Ladies Love regular. We featured her on the SF edition: Ladies Love the Punch Line and she absolutely smashed it. Her comedy is real, inspired, intelligent and all kinds of other adjectives that still don’t do her justice. Catch her while you can before she flies back to planet awesome.
Aaaand of course there’s me. Unfortunately I will NOT be in attendance this month. I will be performing at the San Francisco Punch Line. If you are in SF please join us for Comedy Stylings hosted and conceptualized by Mary Van Note. The concept is simple - Comics telling jokes in their favorite clothes. Genius right?
In celebration, here is a picture of one of my fav pair of shoes.
FYI - tonight I’m hosting a pretty kick-ass show that also happens to be in a Christian bookstore and is what we in the biz call a “Clean” show. That means all shits will be doodies, all cocks will be wee-wee’s and all double-penetration raw rough anal will be “hug sessions.” Wanna see this…
The Christian bookstore across the street from the Layover is having clean comedy shows over the weekend. Check it out!
“San Francisco is undergoing a comedy boom. I’m hesitant to call it a renaissance; that diminishes the people who have been doing standup for much longer than the new wave of practitioners, but it’s hard to deny there’s a new level of talent emerging from the nooks and crannies of our fair city’s dive bars. I am not an impartial observer to this scene: I have skin in the game as a producer and performer. I do open mics and showcases at places like Milk Bar on Haight and the Layover in Oakland.”—A Standup Group - The Bold Italic - San Francisco
Mike Spiegelman hosts comedians Greg Edwards, Michael Capozzola, Greg Asdourian, Sean Murphy, Lyall Behrans, Gayle Jones, and Colin Mahan’s 3rd Annual Holiday Retelling of Die Hard and Die Hard 2 In Ten Minutes. FiveTenBurger will be there.
Our show is free but we love and accept tips (just the money kind, fellas!)
Ladies Loving the Layover this month
Kelly McCarronis the girl next door but waaaaaay funnier. She’s can sing like a bird and she’s got the legs of a dancer so I’m gonna go ahead and call her a triple threat. She lives in Southern California now so we are super lucky to have her. Yay.
Eloisa Bravo is a firecracker. A hot tamale. She’s passionate….fiesty… and fiery….what I’m trying to say is she’s a Latina. A funny one.
She’s not on Twitter so feel free to follow her in real life.
Mary Van Notehas a fancy name because she’s a fancy lady. She’s the ONLY person I ever worry about being better dressed than me. Her wardrobe is amazing but that’s only a teeny part of why SHE is amazing. Her witty and unique humor always makes me smile. She’s undeniably herself, and I love it….you will too.
Athena Rodriquez joined us in September for the first time as a special guest. She had the audience in the palm of her hand during her short 5 min set. I was so impressed I wanted to be sure to have her back for a proper set.
Marga Gomez….MARGA MUTHEREFFING GOMEZ YOU GUYS! Marga is big time. She’s a certified pro who has done it all headlined, one-woman shows, TV and Marc Maron interviewed her on WTF! I’m lucky to call her a friend and I pinch myself every time she tells me I’m funny because coming from her it really means something. You guys are gonna love her. LOVE HER!
Sandy Stecis a total pro. She’s a morning show DJ on Star 101.3, she’s worked with Chelsea Handler, Richard Lewis and Dana Carvey and her proudest accomplishment was getting the fuck out of Milpitas. We are THRILLED to have her.
Layover Comedy from Norm Hazzard, Karinda Dobbins, Brendan Lynch, Natasha Muse, Kaseem Bentley and Dustin Hempstead hosted by Mike Spiegelman to help ease the strain of election day along with burgers from FiveTenBurger. 8:30 p.m. Free. 1517 Franklin St., Oakland. oaklandlayovercomedy.tumblr.com.
