Indy fuckin rocks: finale

The sinking ship, done. The bob and tom show, done. The Memphis showcase at mortys, done. What could possibly be left in my time in Indy, omg a bunch. Sunday night after my set at the sinking ship I was invited by Tom May the host of the freezone radio show to be on. The freezone radio show is probably the longest running punk rock radio show in America. It’s been on for 22 yrs and Tom has been its host for 6. I said yes cause I’m an old punk rock kid and I was going to be in town anyway.
I get a call from comedian and great friend Kris Shaw. Kris was getting back in town and wanted to hang out. Of course I’m going to make time to hang with my bro. Stan Chen then tells me that I was going to headline a local gig at the Beer Sellar I said sure and thanked him again for all the love and help. Finally another comedian friend and all around hottie Susanna Lee who I haven’t seen since we both competed in the San Fran comedy contest was in town doing a comedy/burlesque show. I had to stop by and check it out. So here people what was going to be my last night in town turns out to be my busiest night yet. Lets recap. The freezone radio interview would be at 7 Susanna’s show would only be 5 minutes away and starts at 8. My show at the the Beer Sellar would be 30 minutes away and start at 10. Could I make them all. Yep.
The radio show was so much fun Tom is a great interviewer and true fan of the genre and comedy. We had many Stanhope conversations. He also now owes me a few shots the next time I’m in town. Check out that show if you get a chance it’s wicr 88.7 on Friday nights at midnight. Left the studio and went to the white rabbit cabaret to see make Susanna’s show, Amanda and I got there and holy shit. This show was packed, I mean standing room only packed. I mean I’m jealous of this crowd packed. Kris Shaw jumps out of the shadows and we all watch Susanna own the crowd. Own like I’ve never seen her rock a room. I’ve known Susanna since the late 90’s when she used to open for me in Memphis as much as possible. She was great in the contest back in San Fran in 2010 but omfg she owned these people. I was so proud of my friend. We couldn’t stay for the entire show had to get across town for my show. This sucked cause we only got to see the comedy part of the show I had to leave before the nakedness began. Boooo. Anyway check her out here susannalee.com
Finally we get to the Beer Sellar where my show was going on to happen. Thankfully it was in the parking lot over from my hotel so this would be an easy close to the night. Kris showed up as well as Jane Haze, Steven Kline and Stan Chen. Jane and Steven were still in town because the car they came up from Memphis to do the show died. There was only about 40 people here for this show and it was like a open mic with a paid headliner. As usual Stan killed, Jane and Steven slayed and Amanda rocked.
I love Indy I can’t wait to go back I would love to work mortys or the sinking ship I just want to go back to Indy, met a bunch of great comics and earned some new fans.
Oh and I’ll put up the audio from the freezone
