The Three Amigas

Okay, not really. Pictured are the hilarious and lovely, Michelle Buteau, Susan Alexander and Esther Ku at the Five Funny Females and Five Funny Fags show at The Lakeshore Theater in Chicago, IL.

Apparently, there is truth in advertising. Susan Alexander did a fine and funny job of hosting the show. I know Michelle Buteau from the New York days and as we were catching up, she told me about how people always say that she reminds them of people, like Morgan Freeman. I laughed out loud. She said, "No, really. That happened. Because of my freckles." "What?" I asked. She said that she has also gotten comparisons to Lenny Kravitz and Raven Symone. I don't get the Morgan and Lenny thing; but actually, the Raven similarity does make sense to me. They don't look alike, but Raven Symone is such a natural and funny. Michelle is so like that -- on and off stage. Will someone give this girl a tv show already?

Michelle introduced me to Esther Ku before the show. I have an acute case of laryngitis at the moment, so I've been showing everyone the note in my journal: LOST MY VOICE. NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK AT ALL! I saw Esther after the show and told her how much I enjoyed her set. She dryly replied, "I didn't hear you laughing..."

Robbie Fulks

If you like country music, you will dig Robbie Fulks. I liked him, his band and his sneakers. I also liked it when he played James Taylor's song, "Your Smiling Face."
