Our first live show! Featuring high school dance horror stories and a laugh-out-loud conversation with W. Kamau Bell.
The Cooler LIVE! with W. Kamau Bell
The theme of the night was Homecoming Dance so we kicked things off with horror stories from our high school days.
My tale was heavily influenced by my very Greek upbringing.
Exhibit A: Me and my pet goat, Yiorgo.
Exhibit B: No, that's not my sister. That's me randomly standing next to a fake potted plant.
Exhibit C: Me kicking it by the fireplace. Notice the knee pom-poms.
Exhibit D: Me discovering gender, Greek skirt edition.
I ran into some trouble with my Homecoming date, but Jamedra had no problem finding arm candy at her Junior Prom:
And Carly had a Prom that only makes sense in England:
After we shared our embarrassing high school stories, we sat down with W. Kamau Bell to chat about everything from Serial and Denzel Washington to his prom and a recent racist incident he experienced in Berkeley.
During our sit-down, we referenced his great This American Life piece about the public forum that resulted. It's definitely worth a listen:
Come back next Tuesday for a special bonus episode featuring live conversations with Bay Area voguing maestro Jocquese Whitfield and Brontez Purnell, former member of Gravy Train!!!! and lead singer of The Younger Lovers.
