Without A Shield by Evey McKellar

Without A Shield by Evey McKellar

In Level 5 improv, our teacher asked us to write down three performers we admire. One of mine is a DCH favorite: Sallie Bowen. From her standup routine featuring the ‘south mouth’ to her hysterical character videos on YouTube to her wholly, beautifully-awkward commitment to the game anytime she’s on stage, I love watching her perform. I’m inspired by and in awe of the way she stands in her own being, how she holds vulnerability with such confidence, curiosity, and creativity.

Self-Aware? I Hardly Know Her: A Very Official, Very Important, Interview

Saturday, September 22nd, marks the debut of Self-Aware? I Hardly Know Her. Created by the sketch team One Of Us Is Carol, this revue combines the talents of Maggie Rieth Austin, Sallie Bowen, Ashley Bright, Bonnie Criss, Madison Frihart, Emily Gee, Jonda Robinson, and Jade Smith. Self-Aware? I Hardly Know Her is an hour of comedy filled to the brim with big characters, hilarious physical comedy, and a ton of mustaches.

I sat down (Just kidding, I emailed them, no one talks face to face) with these wonderful comedians to better get a feel for their show.
