Lake Tahoe Getaway, Showtime

Dear Sillies,

I've been very fortunate to embark on exciting getaways these days, despite the pandemic.

Mother's Day weekend found me in glorious Lake Tahoe on the CA-Nevada border. (I'm late on posting this, I know.). Thing is, I went there for a show. Well, more specifically, I went to perform in said show! 

The marquee reads "Funnyball Comedy." This comedy included headliner Johnny Taylor, five other male comic friends, and...Me. The guys are all very nice. There was no ego to deal with. Johnny's a talented, witty, and humble gentleman.

Yeah, I've been doing standup comedy for approx three years. A friend from Chico moved to Nevada and arranged the show. He booked me as the only woman in the show. Woohoo!

It was one of the best weekend's of my life. I was treated like a celebrity and felt like one. They comped our rooms, drinks, and gawked over us. I made friends, fans, and had an all-out remarkable time.

While I didn't deliver a perfect performance (I forgot some things and messed up one of my lines), I wasn't terribly nervous. Most importantly, I looked good. If I do say so myself.

 I'd post the video of my 10-minute standup set, but I can't. Not because it's too naughty. I mean, it IS too naughty to post. But I don't yet have the full video. I'm still waiting on it from a comic friend who filmed the whole thing.

Here, I'm taking in the ambience before driving back home from the experience of a lifetime.

Be well, my darlings.

    1. I don't know, Mike. I'd be banned from blogland. But I might be able to forward it via personal email, if it uploads, if I get it...=)

  4. You are an amazing woman! It wouldn't surprise me to see you hosting Saturday Night Live in the future. You have always been a star to us, you know, and I'm glad they treated you like one.

    1. Haha. Ah, go on, Jono, go on. Nah, it was really a once in a lifetime gig. Maybe more special because of it.

      Be well, friend.

    1. Thank you, Alex. I'm flattered. I got all the perks and no drawbacks from a slice of "fame." It was pretty damn nice.

  6. Proud to know you. I bet you slayed them. And Tahoe is SO lovely. Glad you could enjoy some daytime beauty, before you became the nighttime funny beauty. Cheers!!! Keep smiling

  7. Shit, no wonder your picking all the men up!

    1. Haha. What men, where? They all disappeared as soon as I had a taste of stardom. Hmmm?
      I suspect you might be monopolizing them, MM. xx

  8. I'm thrilled for you, Robyn! We'll see you on Netflix some day with your own XXX comedy special, I know! Keep on climbing that comedy ladder!

    1. Haha. Ooh wee, I like it. Triple X's next to my name, and not on an XXXS t-shirt. Thank you, Debra, for cheering me on.

  9. Well, That is great! It's hard to be a comedian especially a woman because, well, you know better than most. I bet you were great regardless. I am glad you had a wonderful time:)

    1. Thank you, Birgit. It's an interesting niche. I like being one of a few, and I have many good role models. But yeah, there are some fun challenges. It's interesting that women and men tend to react very differently to my performances. (Women like me, men don't, except the cool and confident ones.)

      Hugs.

  10. Wow, that's so cool. That sounds like fun but I'm not funny or my daughter tells me.

    1. It's a rush, for sure. Years ago, Mary, a 4 year old girl I was babysitting said, "Robyn, you're almost funny." That was hilarious. My point, though, ignore your daughter's words if you want to give stand up a try.

  11. Naughty is nice, and you looked great.

    Love,

    1. Thank you, Balanced AF.
      At some point, you just gotta say WTF? After saying it once, you don't have to say it anymore.

  13. Wow, that's amazing! I didn't know that! How fantastic! Very proud of you. Looking forward to it. How wonderful to have such a peak experience in the middle of life. There's hope for me yet haha

    1. Haha. Anthony, it seems you've had many a peak experience that I haven't. There's plenty of hope for both of us. Thank you, dear friend.

  16. OMGosh, I LOVE stand up comedy. I could never, ever do it, so kudos to you! Little lady has a whole lot of brass! When will you be in Pittsburgh? I'm a laughing drunk in that audience all the time. :)

    1. When the audience is drunk, that could be a really good thing. Or it could be really bad. But if you're in the audience, Elizabeth, you'll tip the scales towards a wildly fun time.
