If you are not aware once a month at Tacoma Comedy Club in Tacoma, Washington we put on a Battle of the Sexes show. And as much as I love that constant comparison (sarcasm) that show is really fun. Stand-up and improv games for points to see who wins and who gets mad over an imaginary competition! That being said the ladies team (Team Snatch Berries) won this last round.
During the show we have HEAD-TO-HEAD battles which are my favorite part and can include, writing a short rap, an emo poem or in this case a craigslist missed connection/casual encounters ad. The August competition had me selected against Mr. Nigel Larson to write a Craigslist ad which the audience got to choose the location and 3 words I had to use in the ad. I had to write an ad for someone I met at Subway using the words mayonaise, sock puppet and Salvation Army. Here is what I came up with:
I knew we had something special when I saw your foot-long. I usually don’t eat sandwiches but as fate had it I would try a lot of new things that day. I hate mayonnaise but I ordered extra to get my point across. I have never ever felt like this since the last time I was at Salvation Army and that guy asked me for a hand job while I wore a donated sock puppet… that didn’t work out. I wouldn’t be writing this if I wasn’t over him. I can’t stop thinking about you putting your extra meat in my warm bun. If you ever want to find out how Jared lost all that weight, e-mail me and I’ll show you exactly what he ate.
The audience greatly enjoyed it and I won that head to head battle. Naughty and ridiculous, I received many compliments afterwards for my forbidden love story. The previous month I had written an emo poem about marriage that was fairly popular and someone had requested that I post it online. I posted it on my fan page (facebook.com/monicanevi) for those who missed out on the performance to read.
Since, that went so well we decided I should actually post my craigslist ad to craigslist.
Here are my favorites out of the responses:
Many were very aware of what was happening and replied that it wasn’t them but they were interested anyways:
Some thought, just maybe they were the Subway Prince:
A few just jumped right in and started talking dirty and ridiculous:
(This is a long drawn out inappropriate story but the yellow mark is my favorite park)
Most just had this question:
And some just wanted to compliment my talents:
Such interesting responses from just one fake craigslist ad. And as much as I wanted to know more about the boat accident or tuning a distant radio, all of those guys are still waiting for the Subway Princess to respond. Even the guy that sent me the picture of him in his speedo…
All in a months work at the Tacoma Comedy Club Battle of the Sexes show. Next show is October 19th at 8pm! If you wear a costume you get in for free!
