For comedian tweeters, life isn’t all about Sochi. There are hipsters and booze too.
It’s the Olympics, and excitement is in the air! Well, at least for one comedian:
New Sochi Olympic Events:
1. Escape rabid dogs
2. Fight homeless man for block of cheese
3. Women's ski jump

Greg Dorris is a Brooklynite appearing in the 8 p.m. Feb. 16 show at The Comedy Studio, 1238 Massachusetts Ave., Harvard Square.
For others, life goes on as usual, Olympics or no. Jenny Zigrino, a standup comic and vintage clothing hoarder who travels a lot, has plenty to think about even without the quadrennial winter games:
I can't tell the difference between rednecks and hipsters. Both have beards, wear dumb hats, and completely ignore my sexual advances.

Cambridge comedian Scott McLaughlin – in addition to appearing in the 8 p.m. Feb. 27 show at The Comedy Studio, 1238 Massachusetts Ave., Harvard Square – is still on the Internet:
Rachael Klein, blogger about improv comedy, theater and other arts, is still reading magazines:
I keep staring at this New Yorker cartoon like a Magic Eye trying to get the joke to come into focus.

Somerville comedian John Tullar is still going to movies:
Holy shit, the other day I saw a movie and Amy Adams wasn't in it.

And Cambridge’s Matt D. is still drinking to excess:
I am a pretty boring drunk. Like my most exciting story is one time I got really trashed and ate a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread.
