Performances photographed by Michelle Shahrzad Davis (Excellent! Many thanks). Camera battery ran out before Max Amini's set, unfortunately (if you have photos of him performing, please email to jj@iranian.com). The Friday night's "No Gays in Iran" show in San Francisco's Swedish American Hall, starring Iranian-American coemdians Mehran Khaghani, Amir Malekpour, Tissa Hami, and Max amini, exceeded my expectations in every respect.

You were absolutely Lovely! I can't thank you enough for your presence Friday night and the night before that.  Love you Girl!

Only This time?

by Monda on

You guys should have your own comedy show out there.  Princess jan It only takes 2 credit cards and some breaks from work for emailing, phone calls and such. Plus you'll have JJ's good vibes on your side. 

Since you'd probably see JJ sooner than I will again, please do ask him for some clips here :o)

Maryam and I missed you at the show, you would've thoroughly enjoyed the chuckles as much as we did.

Na baba cheh publicity?  The posters I took out to the Castro businesses got washed out during the storms,... anyway it was lots of fun. Hopefully next time you guys will be there.
