“You gotta be like me. You gotta be able to parachute into FOX News on ten minutes notice and scare the shit out of Sean Hannity. Whether you’re just audibly barking at him or whether you grab him by his stupid tie!”—Jesse Ventura, on what it takes to enter the Enigma Force Five (via mistah-eff)
February/March: Seattle, Portland, Kirkland, Olympia & Chicago!
What does the Pacific Northwest have in common with Chicago? Almost exactly nothing, except for some great comedy scenes - that will include me as a traveling headlining guest in the next two months!
Check twitter and my website for more updates, but here’s what I’ve cobbled together so far:
SEATTLE: Doing a bunch of shows around town later in February with a lot of very funny friends, including Early Late Show with Yogi Paliwal FRI 2/21 at Rendezvous Jewelbox Theatre, PLUS Henrietta Comedy MON 2/24 at **CONOR BYRNE PUB** in Ballard! You must attend one or both.
OLYMPIA: Jalapeño Productions presents moi, SAT 2/22 at The Royal Lounge! We will be drunk and road-trippy.
PORTLAND: The kickass show Funny Over Everything SUN 2/23, this time at Curious Comedy Theater. You know what I’m talkin’ about! (God I hope so.)
KIRKLAND: After really only what I think of as a short break, I will return to the Seattle area, this time the superfun Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland, with several headlining shows THU 3/13 - SAT 3/15!
CHICAGO: You know what they say about March - in like a lion out like an Adomian! Returning to the very fun Zanies Comedy Club for almost a full week of shows, including Adam Guerino’s pioneering Queer Comedy show on TUE 3/25, followed by nine more shows at Zanies WED 3/26 thru SUN 3/30!
Oh, PS: Here’s the awesome poster featuring ten of my podcast characters/impressions as drawn by Alex Kelly - I will be selling these along with my standup album LOW HANGIN FRUIT at all these shows for low, low prices - unless I forget them in the hotel room like I sometimes do!
James Adomian is a daredevil dancing queen — but don’t you know deep down he’s just a kitten? James was a top-10 finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and is a frequent guest on Comedy Bang Bang and other wild podcasts. He performs stand-up and characters live at Upright Citizens Brigade…
Rare congressional ass-kicker Alan Grayson touches on a deeply disturbing corruption of the American system of government: congressional representatives literally aren’t allowed to know what the NSA police state is doing, except for a tiny number of insiders who are carefully selected for their loyalty to that same police state!
Understand: 95% of the *law makers* are kept from knowing how the most important national security laws they pass are implemented (answer: illegally). This is not a legitimate system of government. Whether it was always a scam or recently became a scam, republican democracy in America is a scam: a funhouse charade of liberty and self-rule.
Americans: your claims to freedom under the law in current conditions are utterly fictional and frankly will not hold up to historical scrutiny. Please stop speaking of your freedom under the law in the present tense - “free” as a current quality of being a United States citizen. Start transitioning to some more accurate self-descriptions: "formerly free" or “at one time almost free” or “falsely promised freedom” or “free in spite of this regime” or "potentially one day free.”
