I am so lucky to be able to watch, read and listen to so many wonderful artists who are sharing their ways of interpreting the world for us and spreading the gift of dick jokes! Here are some that you won't want to miss.

This is my second edition of Things That Make You Go Hmmm where I highlight some fanfuckingtasticals who are making the world a funnier place to live. I'm incredibly thankful to be surrounded by so much talent; courageous voices sharing their hilarity with the world and making us laugh. Laughter lowers your stress level and can make you live longer (I saw that shiznit on Drs this week). So, I think, everyone should be doing it as much as possible as the gym is such a downer. Comics open up topics that sometimes go un-discussed, bravely baring their honesty and creating a community around "Oh yeah, I feel like that too!" Comics share their truths with us, helping us laugh at ourselves, with others, through hard times and during good times. Below is some greatness that I highly recommend:
Katie Hartman and Leah Rudick make up the incredible duo Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting. I have had the honor of working with these two powerhouses of funny on multiple occasions. I recently watched their full length show, The Underdeveloped and Overexposed Life and Death of Deena Domino (a total must see that is playing at The PIT, Thursday May 31st - that's TODAY at 9:30pm so hustle your bums), which was so incredibly creative, funny, well done and imaginative, I was completely blown away. SBJM gets a strong message across, commenting on our culture amidst all the laughter and awsome costumes; art at it's finest my friends! SBJM also perform an array of sketches that are always amazing. I look forward to every time that I have the opportunity to see them because I never know what they're going to come up with next; but what ever it is, I can be sure that I'll laugh until I snot all over myself. Please follow them on Twitter and look for SBJM's Deena Domino at The Capital Fringe in DC and at the New York Fringe this August! Make sure to check out their web cite and watch some of their amazing sketches and clips on-line.
And an update to a previous HMMMMM's: Hick Hop Radio is now on PNC.FM Radio - that's the 'People Need Change' station- same time (6pm Tuesdays) same shenanigans. And GLOC is at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC this week - my Southern peeps please check it out!
Laugh 'til you pee!
