A Standup Comedy EP
Recorded Leap Day Feb 29, 2016 at The Cynic Cave / Lost Weekend Video, San Francisco Mission District.
Other performers on the bill were Nick Flanagan, Marga Gomez, and Lexie Mountain, hosted by Brandie Posey

This was a documentation of the Cynic Cave basement which I helped start in 2012, a few days before Lost Weekend Video closed to move a block away. This was where I had the most stage time and thought it would be a shame if I didn’t get down a decent recording of my comedy as it was in the most hospitable room I had.
This also felt symbolic for me to mark moving away from the Bay Area, where I’d lived my entire life. The City and Oakland were irrevocably changing, my relationship was taking me to Los Angeles, and the venue I helped start was shutting down - a fitting trifecta of closure.
I didn’t headline the night or really promote that I was recording, which alleviated some pressure, and I’ve never done a continuous set up to this length before or since. Hopefully by the next Leap Day I will.
- June 2017
