    This seriously made my day. I’m the girl who asked the question about standup comedy. I submitted that almost half a year ago on that fateful night, not thinking anyone would read it. Since then I’ve been back to the mic many times, and am starting to feel like I finally have a place in the scene. Thank you to Cameron for your kind words and encouragement, it’s women like you who give me hope for the future.

      Oh, man. Cryin’! I am so glad to hear that you’re slaying.

    She talks about whole people, and not just their specific questions, and there’s so much support and compassion coming out of this. I’m also very fond of that haircut, and pretty much just everything about her.
