Dear fam:

On Thursday, August 29th, Joshua and I are ENDING RACISM!!

Yes, our yearlong residency at Sacred Fools Theater is coming to an end so we thought that, gosh, what a simple way to go out - let's talk about "RACE!"

Catch the show and, afterwards, we can stop at the taco truck and grab a drink at The Plunge!
