What is this show/podcast tour all about? It's me on stage for 90 minutes telling pee-your-pants-funny stories to make you laugh. Every once in a while I drop in the occasional motivation bomb to remind you that you're a badass who can totally do whatever it is you want to do in life!
Why is it called Happy in the Same Pants? It was one of my Mama's favorite expressions when I was growing up-- it's a reminder that no matter how we're feeling, we can change our mindset and get "happy in the same pants". The show was created to remind women how freaking strong they are... it's also, conveniently packaged in awkward stories about my life.
Why does it seem so different than what you've done before? Because it is! Over the last decade I’ve had an incredible career as a motivational speaker and I’m super proud of that work– but those kinds of keynote speeches are usually built specifically for audiences that are already motivated and looking for an extra boost. But what if you’re not comfortable at a personal development conference? What if you’re not sure if that’s your jam? What if you’re freaking exhausted and you honestly just want a night out to laugh and have fun? That’s why this show is different – it’s built for everyone, no matter where you’re at.
What should we expect out of the evening? Every show is a little different, but on average it’s been an hour of funny stories that will make you cackle and cry with laughter– assuming you find jokes about periods and getting your butt waxed and the awkwardness of sex– funny. Then it’s a live Q+A with members of the audience that’s 30 minutes (ok, sometimes it’s like 45 min) of Q+A because I love to chat, but I promise not to go over a 2 hour show so you can get back home to the sitter!
Who is the show for? Basically, anyone who has ever had a period, has a sense of humor and is –at least– 18 years old.
Who is it NOT for? If your mother-in-law is super conservative and easily offended– this isn’t for her. If your husband gets freaked out buying you tampons– don’t bring him. In fact, if you want to bring a dude but you’re not sure whether or not the dude will like it, ask this question… do I want to bring Steve because he’s a big fan of women and he’s always down for a good time? OR do I want to bring Steve because I don't like going places by myself and he owes me because I went to that monster truck rally with him? If it’s the latter– don’t bring Steve.
Also, don’t bring your teenage girls. I’m sorry to say it because I LOVE talking to teenagers, but I wrote this show for grownups and it will scar me (and them!) for life if they have to hear me talk about what my saggy stretchmark tummy looks like during sex.
