How to get the Coconut Underground (A.K.A. Chamorro Rumor Mill) started: whisper something to yourself.
Self: Mona is coming to Saipan and she’s going to perform comedy at Naked Fish on March 30th at 6:30 pm.
Coconut Underground: Vrrrooooooom!!!
Okay, so that was a joke and it’s pretty apparent that I am not funny, but Mona Concepcion is and she will be on Saipan on March 30th for a night of comedy at the Naked Fish Bar & Grill!! All the proceeds from the $10 cover charge will go to the Autism Society. I originally intended it to go to my Save the Mommy Fund, but that’s pretty difficult to pitch. That, and I don’t know who in their right mind would pay to expand my bathroom to include a jacuzzi. Autism is no laughing matter, and awareness efforts can never be vigorous enough, but for one night we can share an evening laughing for a good cause. Won’t you join us?
By the way, did I tell you how awesome Naked Fish is? Totally awesome!! In addition to opening up their doors and providing live music for the evening, they will be donating 20% of all profit that night to the Autism Society!! Even though it sounds like the contribution of funds is the best part, let me assure you it’s not. The hearts of the people involved in this are the most wonderful part about it and why I feel completely blessed to live in a multi-cultural, interdependent, extended, blended and caring community. Thank you Naked Fish!!! Thank you Butch Sigua!!!
Who is Mona? SHUT UP!! Mona is the only Chamorro FEMALE COMEDIENNE in EXISTENCE. This is probably due to the minimal representation of Chamorros in demographics worldwide, but it’s TRUE! She’s the only ONE folks and she’s FUNNY. She’s make-fun-of-your-Sears-loving-family funny. She’s pick-on-your-husband funny. She’s the only comedy act in the Seattle area that uses the word bebe without proper capitalization and the audience doesn’t have a clue what she’s talking about. BUT WE DO!! So, mark the date in the sand and set your sundials for a night of laughter. Yes, I realize that sundials can’t be set for 6:30 pm. I’m super psyched because Mona’s coming (and because I got to use lots of capital letters in this post).
Thank you to Mona for your comedy stylings, Ed Propst, Bison Relations, Larissa Larson and Butch Sigua @Naked Fish for making all this possible!
