While on my sickbed (from an allergic reaction), I opened my little swollen eyes, scrolled Instagram and saw a repost on Token Talk’s Instagram advertising a FREE Rita B comedy show entitled “Condoms and Comedy” at Duling Hall. I was sick during her last show so I did what any sensible person would do, I got out of the bed and went to the comedy show (duh).
Like many others, I had no idea who the other comedians were and had no expectations. It’s a free show, how could we complain? We arrived on time (7:30 PM) to a packed house so we grabbed the nearest chairs and had a pretty good view. Then, I got a text from a friend who was sitting in front of the stage so we moved there. As a result of sitting right in front of the stage, we became a target for the host and comedians. By we, I mean Husband.
The guys were funnier than expected. They talked women, family, money, and sort of kind of but not really the use of condoms.
Now, to the woman we all came to see. Rita B. effortlessly fused comedy with sex education. I’m not sure but there’s a possibility that the show was for some type of campaign. She talked the importance of getting tested, gave us stats, discussed condom usage and even did a skit with Nardo on how to resist men who don’t want to use condoms. Of course, there were lots of jokes about sex. All of the comedians dabbled in it but it was nothing too vulgar (and this is coming from the President of the Clutches Pearls Society).
At the end of Rita’s set, she announced that she would be taking photos in the hallway. I had mentally prepared to wait in a long line because Husband loves her. Side Note: We saw her at Kroger’s a little while ago and I had to hold him back from rolling up on her. Anyway, Husband said he didn’t want to take pictures with her because she hurt his feelings. Everyone, send a cyber hug to Husband.
