Delilah Goes Solo

Jayme’s stand-up debut!

Not one to be outdone by anyone H2G’s famous Delilah, aka Jayme Newbold, had her stand-up comedy debut last night at The Comedy Store in Hollywood. The rain couldn’t keep her fans away, and the crowd was wildly enthusiastic as she regaled us with the story of her broken jaw, among other, um, interesting topics.

You can see Jayme with Held2gether at Hot Java on January 22 – our first show of 2011!

Toy Drive Show

H2G and Paradise sponsored an improv comedy toy-drive benefit show last weekend for St. Mary’s C.A.R.E. Program, collecting over 80 toys for children of families affected or infected by HIV/AIDS. The event sold out, and the audience was amazing! Thank you to everyone who came out to support a great cause and play with us. We did some Christmas-y long form improv based on conversations we had with members of the audience, and now we’re a little concerned about the elves going on strike and PETA absconding with Santa’s reindeer…

Lots more shows coming up in the new year!

We’re So Proud

Held2gether’s own Sean Cloutier won his first stand-up comedy competition last night at DiPiazza’s in Long Beach. We know fame and fortune will follow, starting with his gig December 22 in the main room at The Comedy Store in Hollywood. But you can see him (and a bunch more of us) at Paradise this Sunday at 11 a.m. – if you have reservations, that is!
