San Francisco! Come See Me Dork Out Plus Bonus Stand Up

This Wednesday, Gentle Reader, I’ll be in San Francisco at Doc’s Comedy Club doing a live Dork Forest Podcast with Jackie Kashian. After that… stand up! (Not me, other people. People actually really good at stand up.)

I. Am. So. Excited.

So look, you see, stand up comics (and particularly stand up comics who do podcasts) are kinda my heroes. They are most likely, these days, to make me commit a fangirl squee. I know, I know, I still love authors, but frankly I’m living among them now so they have lost thier mystique. I am delighted that out there, reading this, are people who get excited when they have the option of meeting me in person. Well, Jackie is to me as I am, occasionally, to my readers. I adore Dork Forest. It’s a favorite podcast of mine and I think Jackie is hilarious. I admire stand up comics hugely. It is a skill I entirely lack and, as you may know from my books, comedy is very important to me. I think making someone laugh is absolutely the most noble and admirable quality possessed by mankind.

Yes, I’m serious about that. I know I know. But I’ll be funny again in a moment.

All I’m trying to say is that this is such an honor and even if you know me and have seen me live before, this will be very different. Jackie is a fearless interviewer and I gave her a list of Dorks that include things I have never ever talked about on a stage before. You won’t want to miss the comedy either. Her stand-up is geeky and awesome and wonderful. She has the kind of energy and attitude that I imagine characterize Rue. (Which I didn’t realize that until I started typing the sentence.)

So yeah, yay! Buy tickets online or at the door.
