ABOUT THIS ALBUM

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Guess what? Making an album is hard work. Who knew?

I almost called this album “Vicky’s Fault” because the one person who pushed it through from vague idea to reality is Vicky Kuperman. Having Vicky force me to make it materialize is the best/worst thing to ever happen to me. I am eternally grateful to her. The Duplex is a fabulous venue. Everyone there is wonderful, but Thomas Honeck was especially good at dealing with my diva side. Eugene Kim, best sound engineer ever, arrived with microphones and a whole bunch of equipment, so I didn’t have to pretend to know anything about the “board.” Eric Trenkamp, who is basically the reason I started doing comedy, also happens to be my own personal videographer. Photographer Ray Hamlin has a magical camera that gave me clear skin. I highly recommend him. I’m still not exactly sure what “mastering” is, but when separate outside trustworthy sources said I needed it Dan Brantigan was able to master this album in a hurry. Lauren Wang has not only given me more than three decades of friendship, but she also designed the album cover after I flailed around trying to do it myself. I often marvel at how I know someone so talented. Erin Judge hosted the show while holding her unborn son in her belly. I can never thank her enough for flying across the country to calm me down, hold my hand and host my show. Her support and encouragement are completely insane. Andy Pitz is an incredibly talented comedian and I still can’t believe he agreed to open for me. We hatched that scheme after performing together in a haunted barn/bed and breakfast, so it’s possible he decided to do it because he was possessed at the time. We’ll never know. Kaytlin Bailey has taught me more about courage than anyone. She made a comedy tour and asked me to come along for the ride. Saying yes was the most important single decision I've ever made. Traveling with Pink Collar and CAKE has been the ride of a lifetime. Kaytlin Bailey, Abbi Crutchfield, and Erin Judge are family now, and that is a gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life. They are the only people in the universe who know every detail of the butt story and they have to live with that. Anne Wilson not only squished me out of her womb but also financially supported my comedy and the tour when it was still theoretical. I have the best mom on the planet, and I feel a little bad that everyone else has to have lesser moms. Vicky, Max, Edith, and Brandon patiently listened to this album while I squirmed around and mouthed my punchlines. They gave me critical advice and support throughout the process. And Edith proofread this very text for me, so any errors are her fault. Fred supports me no matter how much I freak out. Dad helped support the album in its infancy. This list can only be so long, but I'm sending a sincere and heartfelt thanks to EVERYONE who came to the shows the night of the recording and to all of you who have supported my comedy dreams from the beginning.

Also note this fun fact: My fly was down for this entire recording. All the money and preparation and planning and anxiety and my damn fly was down for the whole set. I have photos.
