Sarah Tollemache

Sarah Tollemache wins laughs pondering subjects such as how much Paul McCartney’s ex-sweetheart Heather Mills’s beautifully crafted prosthetic leg must have cost. Tollemache says she’d probably only be able to afford one with “cankles and varicose veins.” She also jokes about her man’s addiction to Halo 3. “I don’t know if you’d heard of it, but it’s 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 she’s describing her favorite thing to do with her boyfriend’s 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. Rudyard’s, 2010 Waugh.
