Improv Percolator, the Common Ground Theatre, and the Durham Rescue Mission



It’s comedy for a cause. That’s been known to happen.  This time it’s improv comedy that will wet your pants, not stand up.  My ridiculously talented improv teacher, Anoo, has invited me and a couple of my classmates to perform at the Common Ground Theatre this coming Saturday.  Bring some new socks and money to donate to the Durham Rescue Mission.

Saturday, November 28  8PM

Common Ground Theatre

4815B Hillsborough Rd. Durham, NC

Matt Braunger rescheduled. New show!

Hey all.  Some of you may already know from the newsletter,  Facebook,  Twitter,  or Motorco. .. but the Matt Braunger show is being rescheduled.  You can get your tickets refunded if you wish.  Or you can hold onto them for the rescheduled show.

Now, if you’ve set aside the date and are jonesing for some comedy on Thursday November 5 at 9, then come out to Motorco.  We will be having a FREE local showcase.  Much like the ones at Fullsteam only this one is at Motorco.

I promise quality entertainment.

I hope everyone had a lovely Halloween!  I was busy doing stuff to apples.



Bulltown Comedy Series. Tootie’s. Yeah I’m still talking about it.


Bulltown Comedy Series

Tuesday October 20 9PM at Fullsteam Brewery

726 Rigsbee Ave Durham NC  FREE!


Never done promoting. Never give up. Never surrender.

And why would you want me to?  The Farmer’s Market would be a lot quieter without a comedy barker.

I’m gone to New Orleans for a week (well a few days there and then a weekend in Pensacola…hey it’s for a wedding). So I’ll have the fantastic Grant Sheffield hosting next week’s Tootie’s.  Still thinking of changing the name to “Why not?” or “Ehhhh…. F*ck it”

The Bulltown Comedy Series is 10 days away. Start getting your friends together now!

I’ll see you there.  :-)


Durham Gay Pride Parade


Some of you may have seen me at Pride this year. I was in the back….waaaay back. Where the people holding the “gay people going to hell” type signs are.


Now and then you wearily go to a party and end up having the greatest time ever.

That’s what happened to my boyfriend and myself at this year’s gay pride parade in Durham. It rained (as it does nearly every year at pride) and we were tired from staying up late the night before. But he was supposed to march with a group, and I was marching alone to promote comedy. We knew we would regret not going.

I already had my sign from CenterFest, a rainbow skirt, and T-Shirt.

So what was I supposed to do?  NOT mock the shitty hate people? (see pictures)

What you don’t see in the pictures, is my dear sweet boyfriend mooning them over and over. He would show his butt, pull up his pants, run a little bit in front of them, show his butt, repeat.


The signs gave me an idea for next year. I’m going to maybe make signs specifically to mock the hate groups at pride.  Let me know if you have any ideas for signs. 12046715_10206341165861054_6029668124347286831_n12065975_877921798950195_6846397410562503957_n




The BullTown Comedy Series

Hello folks,

Once again, the  BullTown Comedy Series is the 3rd Tuesday of every month at FullSteam Brewery 9PM and FREE!

First show hosted by me is October 20!  And I’m starting with a bang.

Purdy Holsom, Mike Rinaldi, Lauren Faber, Eric Megert, Grant Sheffield, and Alex Stone

I’ll be posting videos and pictures and all of that wonderful stuff!




Durham Bulls, Bulltown Comedy Series and September

Hey all,

Finally went to a Durham Bulls game and managed to get turned around while buying another veggie dog.  Lots of fun at the game!  Did a GREAT impression of a drunk person for my boyfriend (it was simply an impression so he could Tweet a picture) and managed to make some business connections.  I think. Hopefully.

Anthony, if you’re reading this now, remember how funny I was!

As for the rest of you kids, I have Matt Braunger and Myq Kaplan coming up at Motorco Music Hall in November.

I’m also taking the reigns from the loverly Virginia Wallace for the Belltown Comedy Series!  I begin October 20 as host.  More on that later.

Also I have some more shows in September:

Speaking of Bulltown comedy, I’m on the September 15 show. Starts at 9 at Fullsteam Brewery. It’s a Tuesday.

Also, if any of you are in Wake Forest, I’ll be there for the Y?BNormal Comedy Tour with Bishop Omega and friends on Saturday at 9 (doors at 8:30).

And of course there’s the weekly Saturday open Mic at Tootie’s on Rigsbee. 8-9, sign up at 7:30. It will also be on the 26, so if you can’t make it out to Wake Forest, go to Tootie’s!













No Tootie’s September 5 and I heart Beth Stelling

That’s right, No Tootie’s Open Mic on September 5.  They will be closed for vacation.

I would also like to say how FANTASTIC the Beth Stelling show was.  Thank yous to everyone who was there and everyone who helped promote.  Feature Brian Burns and Guest Spotter Mike Rinaldi both did a great job. And of course, drinks after.

One of the pics is not like the other (photobomb!)

Take it easy,



Mike Rinaldi, Brian Burns, Beth Stelling, Deb Aronin…and…Friend!
