Gracie has been in comedy for a long time… but she’s been doing the open mic rooms that whole time. She’s kept her day job the whole time. She’s a mom. She’s 58. She’s also one of the few women in comedy who will put up with all the nonsense from the male comics. Most female comics don’t like to hang out with a bunch of dudes bagging on each other and dishing it out. Nothing we say to her affects her – or at least she doesn’t show it. She’s a true soldier. Listen as she breaks down her history of “trying” to get into show biz, and listen as 4 Mexican-Americans try to remember what M.E.C.H.A. stands for.
Flaco also makes a return appearance to cheerlead on the side. We meant to have him on more during this episode but we got sidetracked. We’ll have Flaco on again for his own episode.
At the end of the episode, listen to the premiere of the new “Taco Tuesday” parody of Drake’s “Tuesday” with I Love Makonnen. Video will be coming soon!
