That Time I Opened for Etta James

When I was just starting out in comedy in the 80’s I was hitchhiking in San Francisco one night, yup – me and Aileen Wournos – the last lesbian hitchhikers on the planet.  I very luckily got a ride from Lupe De Leon the manager for Etta James, Kenny Rankin and Tania Maria. I made him laugh […]

Black Swan vs. Burlesque

Black Swan vs. Burlesque

I’m all caught up on my show biz chick flicks having seen Burlesque two weeks ago and yesterday’s matinee of Black Swan. I took my girlfriend so I could grab her arm during the scary gross parts.

Stella and Ina Mae – Ringside Seats Forever

Stella and Ina Mae – Ringside Seats Forever

The first time I met them was about 1982 or 1983. Who remembers – it was the 80’s, I was stoned back then. I was at the Valencia Rose in San Francisco on Gay Comedy night doing a bit about trying to pick up Mormon lesbians in Utah only to end up with Marie Osmond. […]
