I had an absolute blast working with John Hodgman last Friday at The Rex Theater. It was my first time working with both John and Grey Area Productions but I certainly hope not my last. John was a super cool guy and was very gracious about giving me a nice 30 minute set up top. The Rex Theater is a great venue for comedy. Especially alternative comedy. I was able to procure a few pictures from the event from my new Facebook friend: Tiffany Niekro Harkleroad. As you will see from the photos, a highlight of the evening (for me) was getting the chance to help Hodgman dress like Ayn Rand. It was the most memorable moment from a comedy show since Mrs. Palfrey covered me in margarita mix. My next show is this coming Tuesday at The Brillobox for The Most Professional(ist) Comedy Show in Comedy-Ville which starts at 8PM and will be hosted by Sean Collier. Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 21st at 8PM for the Fortune Femster comedy show at Cruze Bar in Pittsburgh, PA. I will be hosting that event and Gay Life Television will be on hand filming.

This past year has been quite the whirlwind of artistic experiences. As most of you know, I teamed up with local rock star Josh Verbanets of the band Meeting of Important People to develop an hour long children’s program with a focus on Anti-Bullying. We call ourselves The Josh and Gab Show. We are a comedy, musical duo with a mix of vaudeville and punk! This Fall we have so many exciting shows and opportunities that I can’t wait to tell you all about! For more information visit: www.joshandgab.com
Beyond that I spent the better part of 2011 and 2012 working as the host of AEOTV. It was the in-house television station for American Eagle Outfitters. As an actress and host, it was easily one of my favorite gigs thus far in my career. I was fortunate to host multiple LIVE events where I was given the opportunity to perform my standup comedy. In addition to the LIVE performances and the in-house videos, I was also hired to go on tour with American Eagle last winter. We travelled across the United States and Canada creating reality-style documentaries rewarding employees who were giving 110% in the workplace.

One sad note, at the end of 2012 funding dried up for my AOL gig. As most of you know, I was writing a weekly column for the Robinson/Moon PATCH site. It was a local, nostalgia column based on my growing up and living in the suburbs. It was the first chance in my career to write something that didn’t have to be blatantly funny, but could be thought-provoking and emotional as well. I feel like I grew very much as a writer during my time with PATCH/AOL and I look forward to finding a new outlet for such writing in the future. To read past PATCH columns visit the link: HERE
Okay. Well, I have a busy rest of the summer. You can visit the link on my site called: Upcoming Gigs to find out where you can catch me performing. Keep posted for exciting news and absurd stories to follow!
Thanks for always being supportive! You’re the best pals a gal could ask for!
