Yours truly (kamau) recently posted a review of the infamous Sex and the City tour on kamaustudios. As you will read or remember, i sort of bonded with my tour guide, Lindsey who i promised i would check out her other gig - the Back Door Comedy night she hosts with creative partner, Kelly.
DoF: how would you describe your event to an extra terrestrial?
Back Door Comedy is a bunch of people in a room laughing. Laughter is caused by the epiglottis constricting the larynx, causing respiratory upset. Are you single, and will you make out with me right now?
DoF: how did this event concept come together?
The event concept came from the decision to create an Empire. We are acting out like a six year old child would. We are opportunists. We are also single.
DoF: if a sponsor gave you $20 grand for four events, what would you do with the money?
If a sponser gave us $20,000 for four events, we would produce short, high quality indie mock sitcoms, which is another project we've been working on. We would hire the funniest, best looking, most famous comedians in the world to perform at Back Door Comedy. And then pay them to spend time with us. We would get our vaginas waxed. Twice. We would write another show together starring us and have the budget for beer helmets to fall from the ceiling for each audience member and other great effects. We would have shirtless men backstage to fan us and feed us with grapes
DoF: what kind of events do you like to attend?
We like live music.. We like things that are funny. We don't want to spend a lot of money. We like events that evoke positivity and creativity and inspiration. And anything that uses a donkey in new and interesting ways.
Contact them directly.
Back Door Comedy night takes place ever Monday, i.e. tonight!
