My weekend at Bumbershoot

I attended Bumbershoot for the first time in my life. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to do it because it was two truly magical days. I came as an attendee but next year I’ll do my best to be there as a performer because performers were given free food, booze and puppies to hold and I love all those three things, food most of all. You already knew I was going to say that. You know me so well, Internet!

I did take a break from my diet (and this is break number what, Mona?! Shut up, brain) but it was worth it because I enjoyed myself, with good food and drinks in a gorgeous city and a festival that inspired and entertained me over and over again.




I saw a few comedy shows with Beth Stelling, Pete Holmes, Rory Scovel, Janeane Garofalo, Carmen Lynch and caught Doug Benson’s podcast: Doug Loves Movies. People were really into those shows and the lines were long. You had to pick up a pass early and if you didn’t get it, you had to get into the standby line and wait. I did both things and was so blown away by the quality of the jokes, the way they mastered the stage and I kept thinking, I’m going to be backstage next year hugging puppies.







A really cool moment happened during my friend Emmett Montgomery’s show where he asked for an audience member to volunteer a question so I raised my hand. Later, after storytelling and jokes, I was called on stage to share my question: “Will my children be happy?” There was a fortune telling contraption which two other performers worked on to keep the domino effect rolling with balls and bells and fake feet and finally, Emmett looked at a magic 8 ball and said, “It is decidedly so.”
