Pasta Sweaty Heaven

Dearest People,
We want to admit that we have a slight fascination with Julia Roberts - the wistful looks, the teary eyes, the Muppet-sized mouth in various states of joyous laughter. Point is, we totally embraced the cliche and went to see The Movie together. We were surrounded by seven hundred and fifty other versions of ourselves - women in pairs (old ones, young ones, short ones, fat ones, rich ones, rude ones, lovely ones) who also came to bask in the glory of Pasta Sweaty Heaven or Italy India Bali or Eat Pray Love. It was all very pretty (especially the parts with Javier Bardem). We're actually working on a new show called Mel & El & Javier Bardem. Stay tuned!

(This the the picture we took of Javier after we told him about Mel & El & Javier Bardem. 
We think that look means "Yes!" en Espanol.)
But in the meanwhile, you're gonna have to settle for just Mel & El on Thursday, September 2nd at Comix. In between songs like "Facebook is Evil" (debuting this month for the very first time!) and "White Lady With a Black Baby", El will tear up while she stares wistfully into your eyes & Mel will use her giant mouth to joyously cackle as if you're fake-closing a jewelry box on her hand**. We swear to Shiva, it's gonna be grand.
Make a reservation here cause it keeps selling out. And book your Birthday Group pronto (that's "right away" in Italiano) if you want us to write the Birthday Girl or Boy a special Birthday Rap.
(Eat Pray) Love,
Mel & El
** Um...that's a reference to the scene in Pretty Woman that started off the whole Julia Roberts-giant-mouth-laugh-moment that now has to happen in all of her movies (kind of like how Tom Cruise always has to have a scene where he runs ridiculously fast). If you didn't catch the reference, you've just made us feel very elderly. You'll have to make it up to us by coming to the show. Click here to make your res. You're welcome.


 Mel & EL: Our Time of the Month
Really bloody funny. Period.

Thursday, September 2nd, 7:30PM
Comix, 353 W. 14th Street, NYC
$10 (cash) at the door
Delicious food & drink available but not required
Reservations here!

Created and performed by award-winning funny femmes Melanie Adelman and Ellie Dvorkin with composer Patrick Spencer Bodd, MEL & EL: OUR TIME OF THE MONTH is a modern-day Laverne & Shirley full of dirty songs, delightful banter and devilish dish. Hailed as “outrageous” by The New York Times and “hilariously squirm inducing” by the Village Voice, MEL & EL features new material every single month along with special guests, phenomenal drink deals and a generous dose of the in-your-crotch comedy you’ve come to know and love.
