Desiree’s Coming Early

Have you ever been caught in a loop?

OMG, seriously this is getting boring. Like, how many times do we have to try to fix this trash only to have to fix it again? When is stuff ever going to change?

Comedian and storyteller Desiree Burch (Netflix, Live at the Apollo, Radio 4) was born late, bloomed late, and generally has difficulty with the present moment. At a moment in history where decades of societal progress have swung right back around to authoritarianism and regression, Desiree embarks on a spiritual journey of mythically ridiculous proportions into the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, to figure out how she, and maybe all of us, have gotten here–and maybe, possibly, hopefully, how we fix the suckiness.
