Last week, we celebrated the release of How to Be Depressed: A Guide by comedian Dana Eagle with a night of stand-up, sketch comedy, and alcoholic beverages. It was an all-around, undepressing good time!
Dana performed on Los Angeles’s ACME Theater stage with a company of fellow stand-up comedians and friends. Comedians included Jackie Kashian, host of The Dork Forest podcast and Nerdist’s The Jackie and Laurie Show; the alternative comedy, “bitter Buddha” Eddie Pepitone, host of the Pep Talks podcast and whose comedy special In Ruins is on now Netflix; “self-help guru” Tommy Lama, and musical satirist Eric Schwartz. Also, actors Amy Scribner, Jonathan Grey, and Sarah Allan performed book-inspired vignettes between each set, including sharing the “Perks of Being Depressed in Los Angeles.”
