You should check this lady out.  She's taken her horrible childhood and turned it into a comedy routine, talking about her alcoholic mother and her Clint Eastwood lookalike father who used to rape her when she was a kid.  Featuring such little tidbits like "The Light Side of Incest" and "I'd Rather Be Raped (Than Beaten)".  She makes Christopher Titus's routines about childhood look like the Brady Bunch.

But what's REALLY shocking is it's... well.. actually kind of funny, in a dark, "I know I shouldn't be laughing at this, but I can't help it, oh god, I'm so going to hell for this" kind of way.

Wow, she is funny, disturbing, jaw-dropping, and kind of bombs, despite her incredibly poignant moments.  Tough sh*t...!!  Her persistent "Thank you" to those very few who howl at her brilliant humor and insight is funny and heartbreaking... BTM: Wow.   Thumbup

Oh, interesting note... according to the comments she's made, she DOES have the routines memorized, but she "pretends" to read it because some of the places she goes require her to read (?!) her material.  Dunno what kind of place is that... coffeehouse, maybe? 

Thought that was interesting...

Like music, the best comedy is rooted in anger or pain. It's therapeutic for a performer, and brings insight to an audience.

I haven't checked the clip yet but that's a very good quote. - Im assuming you just typed that and didnt c+p it from somewhere - ...very true.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
