Three Sisters Make June Jump!

Banner 2Sisters BannerFollowers of this blog will surely pardon me for taking just a moment to kvell.

My three talented daughters – Maura, Emilia and Eva — each have a big gig coming up this June. And provided you have enough free time and transportation resources, I recommend you make the trifecta.

All of these gigs are just five minutes from anywhere by rocket car.

avatars-000546751557-2hua3w-t500x500First off, there’s Eva B. Ross’ gig at Steve and Bea Rashid’s fabulous Studio5 cabaret in Evanston, Illinois (just north of Chicago) on June 15th. She’ll be mixing jazz standards and her own songs, backed by Steve Rashid on keys, Robert Rashid on drums and Grant Milliken on vibes.

For tickets, go to the Studio5 website.

While in the Chicago area, Eva will also play a set of original tunes at Hungry City on June 14th.

At the same time, Eva’s older sister Emilia Barrosse is playing a gig in Carlsbad, California – yeah, Carlsbad.

52ec6720-6750-11e9-a0f1-cbe0c91e00d0-rimg-w501-h640-gmirEmilia is a standup comedian and TV comedy writer who, along with her partner Julie Roland (a Navy helicopter pilot and a magician who performs at The Magic Castle), launched a popular standup comedy event series called Just Tryna Make Friends.

The next Just Tryna Make Friends event is Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 1:00 AM. It’s a PROM SEASON party.

Attendees are encouraged to shine their dancing shoes and pick out their favorite tuxes and dresses for this prom-themed comedy extravaganza, complete with a live DJ spinning the best prom playlist of 2010, reliably-spiked punch — and absolutely no chaperones.

Tickets are first come first served, so get yours now. Carlsbad is lovely this time of year.

cropAt the end of the month Eva and Emilia’s older sister Maura Murphy-Barrosse will be bringing her soulful, bluesy, rocking band, Ms. Maura & The Misters to The Mint in Hollywood on Sunday, June 30 at 7:00 PM.

maxresdefaultMs. Maura & The Misters plays Maura’s original songs and thoroughly groovy arrangements of some classic tunes – all designed to get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!

The Mint is located at 1136 W 6th St. in Los Angeles.

So, there you go! Your entertainment itinerary for June 2019 is a done deal. Maura, Emilia and Eva will get your summer off to a fabulous, fun start.

Emilia Stands Up for Comedy in 2017

e-art-2-copyimage1-21226306My very funny standup comedienne daughter Emilia is hosting her first show of the New Year at the Sycamore Tavern in Hollywood this Friday, February 24 at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 7:00. (Get there early and enjoy an adult beverage or two.)

The Sycamore Tavern is located at 7038 Sunset Boulevard
(Sunset & La Brea) – and tickets are $10.

oAmong the comics that will be performing is one of our favorites, T.K. – a purveyor of classic, old school standup, featuring rapid-fire jokes that would make Henny Youngman, Bob Hope and Rodney Dangerfield laugh out loud and spit their drinks through their nose.

Emilia’s damn funny, too.

Victoria will be there. Join her and share some laughs with Emilia and friends.

We all need some good laughs (and a few stiff drinks) right about now, don’t we?

Perhaps one of these fine beverages will take the edge off life with Trump?1481769510412

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.
