Those were just two of the highlights from this evening's How Was Your Week? show at Bumbershoot. Host Julie Klausner started the show by singing her own version of "Coal Miner's Daughter," in which she sprinkled it with footnotes about her own life, growing up as a well-off Jewish girl with a maid.
When she asked musical guest and sidekick Ted Leo (squeeeee! <3) how he was he, for no reason at all, replied in the voice of, he later explained, the "hiphop cop from The Killing." If you've seen the show, you know exactly who I'm talking about, and watching Leo riff on him was hilarious.
Patton Oswalt came out and talked about movies, how action movies these days don't bother filling in any plot holes and trailers seem to beat people into agreeing to see them, and Bob Seger lyrics. Then Seattle's own Danielle Henderson (who I, I am ashamed to say, have never heard of until today but am now kind of obsessed with!) came out and made fun of Salon and talked with everyone about how very great Orange Is the New Black is.
It as all casual but entertaining, like hanging out with some really fun, smart friends, and while I would go on, it's just not the same retelling someone else's jokes, you know? I won't make it sound as good—you should've been there.
