This weekend one of my best friends from high school came home for spring break and invited me and a few of our friends to go see her sister Danielle’s, stand up comedy performance in Hollywood at a show called, Whore’s on Sunday.
I had no idea what to expect seeing that I had previously only gone to one comedy show in the past, which took place in a stadium. This performance however, was in an intimate room of around 40 people at the world famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard where many of the biggest names in comedy including David Letterman, Roseanne Barr, Chris Farley, and Louis C.K. have previously graced the stage.
I had seen Danielle’s routines on YouTube but nothing compared to her live performance. She is a natural on stage as she jokes about her lack of interest in buying make up to attract men, her previous stint in rehab, and her concealed hatred for an elementary school classmate named, Stacy. Her jokes are organic, witty, and stories that any twenty something can easily relate to. Not only that, but her parents accompanied us to her performance and could not have been more proud of her raw and raunchy set. She even jokingly (of course) mentioned her dad throughout her time on stage saying, “Hope I’m making you proud, dad!”
I am so glad that I got the opportunity to see Danielle along with an array of other amazing comedians perform. They do something that I don’t think I would ever be able to do and it is truly an art form. Being able to stand up in front of a crowd of random people and make them laugh by using merely your words and mannerisms requires an immense amount of courage and I am so happy to have been one of the few to see Danielle Roz do so before she makes it big!
I also want to hear if you guys know of any comedians that I should check out. If so please let me know in the comments below!
I hope you all have a lovely day,
