Abe Lincoln and a T-Rex Are In Motherfunkin' Space!

We nominate standup comic Brandie Posey for Best Day Job Ever. Not only does she get to do social media work for a company that is dedicated to working with nonprofits throughout the country, but they ALSO recently pimped her car out in a very serious way. Behold:

“I seriously can't stop smiling like an idiot. IT'S SO AMAZING!!!! Tomorrow, a fire breathing Brendan Fraser will be on the other side.”

As Brandie says: “I'm a social media coordinator for this program called Scion x-CHANGE ( We go to 30 cities across America and team up with an art nonprofits in those cities -- for every test drive completed, $10 can be donated to that nonprofit, so we're funding materials, after school programs for kids, and bringing art education to the underprivileged. In each city, we're also partnering with an artist to create live art at our events.”

But wait, exactly HOW did Abe Lincoln and a T-REX get on the side of your car?

“In Los Angeles, we teamed with artist Raul Gonzalez of the Ultra Violet Social Club, for the live art event. I told him he could paint my car if he wanted to. He asked what, and I said, ‘how about Abe Lincoln and a T-Rex space fighting?’ He's got more work today and Thursday, but we’re raising a nice chunk of change for Art Share LA.”

The LA Hip Tip

Poster illustration by JT Wilcox APRIL 29, 7:30PM and 9:30PM, The Hollywood Musicbox, 6216 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles: Reserve your free tickets now for Mash Up, a Comedy Central Presents live TV taping. Featuring stand-up by Matt Braunger, Hannibal Buress, TJ Miller, and Kumail Nanjiani, this show will be shot by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Vogt-Roberts referenced this project in our recent interview with him here, citing that the final product will be a Blerds-style production, with sketches and shorts interspersed with live stand-up. As for this leg of the production, you would be remiss to not reserve your free tickets for what is going to be a rip-roaring stand-up comedy show starring four poised-to-explode comics.
