Hotel Ziggy was jam-packed to celebrate Comic Christine Peake’s birthday February 5.
Sold-Out for Christine Peake Birthday show
Spotted among the crowd was SNL legend Darrell Hammond, One Hope Wine’s CEO Jake Kloberdanz, comics Marisa Sullivan, Cat Ce, Greg Baldwin, Elijah Blue Allman and wife Queenie, Executive Lainie Jordan, Media Publisher Joe Winger, indie filmmakers Susan Dynner and Alesia Glidewell.
The show started with a “this is your life” inspired segment hosted by Mark Gordon that walked Christine through her famed, outrageous, and notorious history. Her modeling days, her celebrity days, being a mother, and most of all – being a badass.
Christine Peake had an explosive night. Unapologetic, and all smiles. She walks on stage with a Liza Minelli via 1970s “Cabaret” vibe, all sass and attitude. Within moments the crowd explodes with a “Did she really just say that??” feeling. Oh, she did. And she’s gonna go way further.
Peake razzle dazzles on stage, melting away any “cancel culture” chilly vibe and creating a hot room for big laughs. She pops and shimmies across the stage in a Charlie Chaplin’s classic “Tramp” kinda way, while letting loose on politics, culture, and all the thoughts her audience is thinking, but are too afraid to say — she says them!
Keep an eye on Marisa Sullivan. A veteran of sketch comedy, but tonight was her first stand-up show. Powerful, brave, sensual and funny. She is a cancer survivor and founded Breast Cancer Bandit. She teases us along, slowly going deep, getting real, more vulnerable with her life’s journey. Then, like a comic ninja, she attacks with her biggest joke. Big heart, even bigger laughs.
Greg Baldwin is equal parts “aw shucks, nice guy”, self-help guru and deranged clown. He’s been through alot and he makes jokes through even the darkest parts. One second we’re sharing a cathartic moment, the next step we’re laughing at his zany adventures.
Darrell Hammond continues his reign of making laugh out loud comedy look easy. I’ve seen him live 6 times and every time the room shakes with laughter. Tonight he used the intimate setting to bring some crowd work into his act and the laughs echoed out onto the Sunset Strip.
DJ Paul Oakenfold brought rhythmic love and thunder to close out the night. Intense, wild and lords of love! Oakenfold knows how to crank the party to 11 and he and his music brought it to a rainy Monday night.
