So, after a year and a half of fandom, I was SO stoked that Karen and Georgia were coming to Chicago on their tour. And then, when it came to buy tickets... I realized I couldn't go.
So, there went that.
But, in one of my Murderino groups, someone said, hey, I didn't get tickets to MFM, but The Dollop is coming, does anyone want to to go that? And I was like, YES!
Maybe not an all-time favorite comedian, but I got to go to a live taping of The Dollop, a podcast I started listening to pretty religiously this year. It's an American history podcast where one comedian (Dave Anthony) tells a story from American history to his friend (Gareth Reynolds), who has no idea what the topic is... about. Sometimes, the podcasts are cry-alone-on-the-train-from-laughing funny while others expose our country's deeply problematic and really, shameful past. You never really know which one you're going to get, but I think that's partly why I like it.
Luckily, a new-ish friend and I are both into The Dollop, so even though there were not seats together, we managed to find seats 2 rows apart, met briefly before the show, and laughed about it after. It was a deeee-light. Attending live podcast tapings are now a thing I'm into.
|Later that night I went to a bar that was taken over by pirates.|
