Sarah Tollemache wins laughs pondering subjects such as how much Paul McCartneys ex-sweetheart Heather Millss beautifully crafted prosthetic leg must have cost. Tollemache says shed probably only be able to afford one with cankles and varicose veins. She also jokes about her mans addiction to Halo 3. I dont know if youd heard of it, but its this game that ruins relationships, she says. She goes on to describe how she tried to bond with him by playing the game but wound up just looking like a psycho shooting her gun up and down in the air.
Her timid stage presence adds to the humor of her act, especially when shes describing her favorite thing to do with her boyfriends porn, which she says became their porn when they moved in together. Tollemache describes flipping through the triple-X mags to find a girl performing a disturbing sexual act and, as if she is completely aloof to what is going on in the scene, telling her stylist, I really want to look like this girl. Starting out the night will be fellow Houstonians Allegra Barnett, Melissa Nichols Vasquez and former Houston Press contributor Eric Dieckman. 8 p.m. Rudyards, 2010 Waugh.
