In this workshop, which combines lecture and discussion, Elle Chase will talk about attitudes (both external and internal) that can hold us back from great sex and specific challenges we face as plus-sized lovers.

Comedy & Crotchless Panties: Performance Anxiety’s 4th Anniversary

Performance Anxiety 4th Anniversary

On Tuesday, Performance Anxiety, the comedy night hosted by Eli Olsberg and Libby Thomas at The Pleasure Chest Los Angeles, celebrated its fourth anniversary with a sold-out show. Fans of the show packed the house, finding places to stand in the back and sit on the floor once the seats were filled. T.J. Miller and Pete Holmes, who headlined Performance Anxiety’s very first show in 2011, returned to headline the anniversary show. Special guests Joe Mande and Eddie Pepitone made appearances as well.

The anniversary audience enjoyed a better class of free booze — Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and even wine — and some lucky folks went home with giveaways, including Pleasure Chest gift cards and products. T.J. Miller also gave away Silicon Valley swag and a signed  bottle that was a prop from the film Extract.

It’s an exciting moment for comedy, particularly in L.A. Vulture recently identified this as the “second comedy boom” in an article in which Performance Anxiety is featured. We’ve been delighted to play host to the renaissance for the last four years, particularly since the renaissance gives us beer and makes us laugh.
