Lucas Molandes, Ramin Nazer Sara Reihani

A few weeks ago I performed at Helium in Portland and Lucas Molandes was my feature act. Lucas is from Austin, Texas. Austin is a spiritual center of edgy original comedy and Lucas decided to take the trip West with two other Austin comedians, Ramin Nazer and Sara Reihani.

The set up showcase sets in California and other gigs around the North West. They called it 'The Good Grief' tour and I got to do shows with them in Salem, Oregon and Arcata, California on my drive back to San Francisco after my week in Portland.

While I was in Portland I wanted to watch the World Cup final somewhere cool and Ashna found The Kennedy School. The Kennedy School is a former elementary school that has been turned into a hotel, cinema, bar, restaurants. This conversation was recorded in the back courtyard of the Kennedy School on a lovely July evening the day after the World Cup final and our week together at Helium.

I respect any young comedian who invests in themselves and takes a chance to expand his horizons by trying to do comedy in far away places, to take a chance on yourself to show people what you can do so they book you in the future.

That is why I respect Lucas, Ramin and Sara for taking this journey West.

The best souvenir of any trip is the memories you create and these 3 great friends are in the middle of a trip they will talk about as long as they live.

Ramin Nazer has a new comedy album out now called 'You were funny too'. It is well worth your money to buy it and 2 of my favorite tracks are played in this recording. Remember to support all your favorite comedians on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc. because numbers are important and the bean counters of this business look at things like that. Prepare to get fuzzy tingles in your heart as I present to you now Lucas Molandes, Ramin Nazer and Sara Reihani.
