Lucia Whalen is the host for the evening. She reveals that she is queer and recently dated some women. However, it was too much work, so she is back to dating men! She says she is dating a vegan man, aka, the lesbian of men. She jokes that he goes down on her for protein!
Chris Bader is up next. He talks about how he was born in the US to Iranian parents. His given first name is Baubak, but after kids started calling him ball sack, his mother changed his name to Chris. Since he was born in the US, he feels like he is white. He also reveals that he just turned 40 and now he is the creepy old guy at the club, which he never wanted to be.
Erica Nicole Clark is a teacher in Northbrook, IL. She is the only black teacher and all her students are white. She is currently teaching kindergarten and she likes to do Fucked Up Mondays. She tells them the craziest story from the news, tuned down a bit. Then, she asks for solutions to the problems. One of the kids suggests that they put all the racists on a place to Antarctica without coats. When Erica says they probably couldn’t get them on the plane, another students says to just redirect a plane headed to Florida, because they definitely won’t have jackets!
Siobhan Townsend is the closer for the night. She starts by singing “Everyone Wants to Rule the World” by Tears For Fears. Next, she sings “Stupid” by Lizzy McAlpine.
She closes with a couple of songs from musicals, “A Summer in Ohio” from the musical The Last Five Years and “Fly into the Future” from the musical Vanities.
She has a great voice and a charming stage presence. The only thing missing is an introduction to the songs.
