I Died Laughing At The 85 South Show

Hey Cuties,

Are you bundled up for the arctic blast we’ve been experiencing? We’ve had high’s in the single digits. Charleston, SC got 4 inches of snow, that is the most they have had in 30+ years. Oh, and Tallahassee, FL got snow as well. Some folks are pretending that Global Warming isn’t a thing because it gets cold but ummm… these are receipts. I’m just saying.

On Friday I told you my word for 2018 is intentional. One of the recurring themes in my life is laughter when they say it is good for the soul I don’t think you get it. Fewer things are better than gut-busting laughter, even better if tears roll down your face, you fall out of your seat and your stomach hurts. Laughter is something I intentionally keep in my life. With the cast of characters living in my home, my wild family and the best girlfriends ever it comes easy.

Seated and waiting.

One of the gifts Babe got me for my birthday was the gift of laughter. He got us tickets to the DC Improv to see the 85 South Show. If you don’t know who they are, they are three comedians from the hilarious improv comedy show Nick Cannon presents Wildin’ Out. It is Nick Cannon’s show on MTV; Babe and I have been fans of the Wildin’ Out show since it started. Although my birthday was in October the show wasn’t until December.

The Day of the show I was excited that the time had finally come. Babe sprang for VIP Seats which meant we sat up front with our knees touching the stage. You know when you sit up front the usually make fun of you in some way. There was one quick joke about Babe but we were in the clear.  There was a lady at our table with an eye patch on, she got the bulk of the jokes. It was funny, but not offensive and she told us when we sat down that she knew they would say something about her patch.

Meet & Greet

Thanks to the VIP tickets Babe got us we also had a chance to meet the comedians we’ve watched on TV for years, and the very people who had us doubled over with laughter.

The 85 South show is made up of:

D.C. Young Fly: Born and raised in Atlanta, Georiga he started out as an “internet personality” by making Vine videos.  He is currently hosting the MTV Reboot of TRL, on the show Wildin’ Out and was in the movie Almost Christmas and New Edition story.

Karlous Miller: Born in Mississippi but began his comedy career in Atlanta. Fun Fact, he was a firefighter before becoming a comedian. He can now be seen on the show Wildin’ Out.

Chico Bean: Born and Raised in DC, started his comedy hustle in North Carolina.  He can be seen on Wildin’ Out.

Although they are hilarious, they are comedians. Some language may be offensive and or vulgar.
They posted the full show on YouTube. Each comedian came out and did some stand-up and then they came together for sheer hilarity.  It was dope to see Babe and I all up in the video.  85 South Show

At the end of the video, they caught us during the meet and greet. You know I had to snap a picture of it didn’t happen. lol

The 85 South Show is a podcast that you can subscribe to. They also have a YouTube channel, seeing them in action makes the foolishness even funnier.

    I’ve never been to a comedy show but I definitely want to this year. I love laughing, and I know this show was hilarious just from the people who were there! Keep living intentionally!

  2. Sapphire Kharyzma

    I’ve never been to a comedy show, but this sounds like so much fun! DC usually have great events! I plan to make a quick stop there in the springtime for some much needed “me” time!

  3. Natasha

    We enjoy Wildin’ Out and we DEFINITELY enjoy laughing. There is nothing better than not worrying about ANYTHING and just letting yourself be for a set amount of time. Laughter soothes the soul so much. And we definitely need a balm for our soul in these times.

  4. Lia World Traveler

    What a great gift, laughter and comedy. We are fans of wildin’ out too. Glad you got to enjoy the show despite the artic blast and various other weather bombs.

  5. Kiwi

    I bet DC Youngfly in person was hilaious. I remember the day Kevin Hart put him on the map on social media and he is been thriving ever since good for him!

    • MimiCuteLips

      He is such a joker for sure. Yes, he started out going at Kevin Hart on social media. I love that he has taken full advantage of this platform and run with it in the best way possible.

  6. Kita

    I’m down for something like this. Will check to see if it comes to Atlanta. Will definitely check out the podcast. I could use a good laugh.

  7. Jaye

    Nothing like a good night of laughter. I will definitely have to check this podcast out!

  8. robin rue

    We go to a lot of comedy shows (I mean a lot) and I know we would love this one. I will have to keep an eye out for it the next time we are in the area.

  9. Alli Smith

    I’ve never been to a comedy show and I love to laugh so I’m not sure why I haven’t been. This looks like a great way to spend an evening.

  10. Eva

    What a thoughtful gift! I love comedy shows – I don’t go nearly enough. I definitely have to have some on my list this year. Glad you enjoyed the show!

  11. Courtney CJ

    I remember when the boo and I went to a comedy show and I was adamant about NOT sitting near the front. I would’ve been terrified! lol And yes, the global warming is so real. It has snowed in Houston twice this year already but thankfully, Dallas has been in the clear so far.

  12. Sarah Honey

    What a fun date night! Sounds like you had a blast and laughed a ton.

  13. Tomi C

    Love, love, love a good comedy show. Looks like you had so much fun. Karlous Miller is one of my fave comedians and I was rooting for him on Last Comic Standing and DC Young Fly reminds me of a younger, sillier Chris Tucker. I checked and turns out the 85 South Show will be in Nashville later this month and so will I. I may just have to catch the guys on tour.

    • MimiCuteLips

      That is perfect, you need to catch a show. And let me know how it was, I know it will be hilarious. That is a great comparison for DC Young Fly.

  14. Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    I’ve never heard of this show before, but it sounds like it was was great! How awesome to have a VIP seat!!

  15. Candy

    Not even remotely close so will never see this show. Wonderful you had a enjoyable evening out with friends.

  16. Amber Myers

    This sounds like a fun show to attend. I love to laugh, so I think I’d like this. I haven’t been to a comedy show in a long time.

  17. Karyl | Karyl's Kulinary Krusade

    I love the DC Improv! When I lived in Maryland we used to go quite a bit. Chris Rock was there one night as a guest, and even got up and did a quick set. And then we got to meet him. It was so awesome.

  18. Sarah Bailey

    It sounds like you had an amazing time at this show, there is something wonderful about laughter as well it can make you feel so much better.

  19. Marysa

    It looks like you had so much fun! How awesome is it to just get out and have a really good time. And some good laughter is so healthy for us!

    • MimiCuteLips

      Yes, I got to act like I had no kids for a few hours. We laughed and laughed, it felt so good. I didn’t realize how much I needed that.

  20. Natalie

    So glad the arctic blast is behind us! I love going to comedy shows – sounds like you had an amazing time!

  27. Emily

    This seems like such a fun night! This is what I need to get out of my mood that this freezing cold temperatures are bringing. Maybe a good date night to a comedy club with my husband could be a good escape!

  28. Dogvills

    Oh wow. You sure seemed to have a lot of fun! I haven’t been to a comedy show in the longest time and I miss it. Nothing feels better than to enjoy a night of laughter and good clean fun. How awesome it was for you to be able to meet those comedians!
