Emilia’s First Comedy Special…

Readers of this blog are doubtless aware that one of my three daughters is a standup comic – and that she appeared this summer in her first comedy special, filmed at iO West in Hollywood. (What? You somehow managed to miss all those promotional posts?)

1226306Emilia drew three wonderful, receptive houses that weekend, July 8-10 — but for those who didn’t get a chance to see the show (and for those who’d like to re-live it) – this video captures all the fun.

Emilia’s been performing her unique brand of comedy in clubs from Los Angeles to Chicago to New York City – and San Francisco, too. The material she wrote and knit together for “Headlong Into The Apocalypse” is the very funny fruit of her first couple of years working in the comedy vineyards.

e-cropSo, if you’ve got a little less than 45 minutes of free time on your hands – and you could some laughs focused refreshingly above the waist – check out “Emilia Barrosse: Headlong Into The Apocalypse.”

And if any of you know Donald Trump, please forward him a link to this video. He’ll hear his name a couple of times.

We know how much he enjoys that.

This Saturday Night: Catch Eva B. Ross @ The Hotel Cafe

Eva Hotel Cafe.pngOkay, folks. If you haven’t seen my singer-songwriter daughter Eva in performance yet – this is the gig to see. And if you have seen her perform before, this will be Eva’s coolest and most important gig yet.

Eva 2.jpgI don’t know much about the music scene in Los Angeles, but I understand that it’s a big deal to play The Hotel Café. It’s evidently one of the groovy gigs to get. And Eva’s got it. She’ll be backed — as always — by guitarist David Miller and the rest of the Eva B. Ross Foundation.

For tickets, click on this link.

So, check Eva out at The Hotel Café. The show just happens to be on my birthday, Saturday April 16th at 9:45. (Sure it’s a late start – but you can sleep in on Sunday, right? Besides, it’s my birthday, remember? And you don’t want to disappoint an elderly man, do you?)

Eva’s talented UCLA friend, Nick Valentini, is also on the bill with his eclectic and very tasty band. I’ve seen Nick and his crew perform – and they’re brilliant!

It’s going to be a memorable night of great music.

So, be there. Victoria and I will be — and we hope to see you all there.
