i felt like i was the only person in the audience and we were having a chat about our childhood crushes. she made me laugh and i couldn't believe how quickly the hour passed. she perfectly tied together her themes of childhood, crushes, awkwardness and the 90s. a neat, cleverly-packaged bundle of humor, wit and self-awareness.
