On Sunday, May 18th, Chicks and Giggles celebrated the 10th anniversary for the show's inception. It was a blast! There was stand-up comedy, storytelling, music, ventriloquist and freestyle rap. Afterward there was a memorial for Jiwon Lee who passed away last month. The memorial was sad yet cathartic. I hope that the community of Chicks and Giggles and the general comedy community will support each other.
Yay! We're celebrating the tenth anniversary of Chicks and Giggles. What started as a stand-up comedy show, it is now a comedy of women who are actors, authors, comedians, musicians, storytellers and writers.

Carolyn and Nichelle
Chicks and Giggles producers Carolyn and Nichelle celebrated their birthday last week in grand fashion at the Ginger House in Chelsea near where all the improv theatres are clustered. Comedians, friends and family came out to party with us. See the full picture set here.
- Bi-sexual, Newly Thin Asians: Margaret Cho.
- Black Girls with Good Hair: Aisha Tyler.
- Women with Suspiciously Fake Sounding Names: Diane Ford, Hope Flood, Chocolate.
Now, I mean no disrespect to Chocolate or any of the other babes on this roster. I just hope Summit doesn't send a lawyer or a female lawyer after me because I wouldn't want to have to appear in court before a judge or a female judge and end up in jail or women's prison.
I guess this post means I'll never be booked at "Jesters Comedy Stop" at Bullfrogs Live in Topeka or the Holiday Inn in Bluefield, West Virginia, but I'm sure they can get Tim Allen to do his one man show, "The Santa Clause 4: Horsemen of the Apocalypse."
