Art school, modern womanhood, hilarious moments from comi-tragic relationships that almost existed…followed up with, “what's next, world?” Lanessa Long uses songs and stories encapsulating the melodramatic nature of being 22 and on the cliffs of severe unknowns. Filled with spicy, fluid piano riffs, and slick, character-filled vocals, this show is a funny, witty, insightful, and poignant display of finding identity amidst angst.

"An extremely funny, engaging, honest and exciting show!! What a rollercoaster of emotions. Cannot wait to see what Lanessa does next."

sweet - Sid Samberg


"This is an amazing show that I would highly recommend to anyone! A wonderful feminist perspective on dating, art school, and life in LA. The music and stories are hilarious. What more could you ask for? Go see " nobody's really helped me" you will not regret it!"

sweet - Kaz Tarshis


"So amazing! Genuinely funny and simultaneously touching. Lanessa is an up and coming artist to keep an eye on!"

sweet - Heaven Gonzalez


"A very funny mix of music and self-deprecating humor. If Lanessa only told jokes, or if she only sang songs, that would be a great show. The combination of these talents makes this show unique, engaging, and hilarious. My favorite part of this show was the narrative of Lanessa accepting the fact that she is an artist. She finds the humor in how society treats artists as a profession as well as her days at art school. I found this very honest and relatable. I felt the ending was a little abrupt. I wanted the show to keep going. Lanessa draws you in and eventually you'll want to hear her take on everything."

"I walked into this show randomly, and was surprised that it was packed full of Lanessa's fans! Funny, weird, touching, I really enjoyed this show, and getting to know Lanessa. I look forward to finding out how she changes and grows over the next 10 years!"

"This show shines through Lanessa's beautiful grasp and interaction with her audience, playing deft jokes and keen observations in quick shifts from squeaky to sultry, earnest to sly. Her songs are catchy, clever, musically complex, and provide the perfect counterpoint to her endearing and guffaw-inducing anecdotes. In the show's best moments, it feels like listening to your hilarious friend tell you a story you've been dying to hear. Lanessa's ability to share her uncertainty, her vulnerability, and her sharp wit in the midst of it all is a real, rare treat--- one that is definitely worth coming out to see."

"Lanessa's quintessential example of how to successfully rope an audience into a performance is inspiring at worst. She's relatable, brilliantly comedic, and has an innate musical ability as a singer-songwriter-pianist. Stand up comedy is one of the single most fearful professions a person can pursue, and Lanessa Long has managed to make it look like child's play with complete and total control over every aspect of her performance. I cried from laughter and feel as though I could watch it for a week straight and never get bored. What makes what she does so convincing and impressive is how she's orchestrated and written her content for longevity, it will stand the test of time. She's undeniably not a one hit wonder and will be entertaining audiences on a grand scale for as long as she decides she wants to."

"Long is a natural comedienne. Her show was essentially a stand up comedy routine which included music, reminding us of the great Judy Tenuta. She had the audience in stitches throughout her show, and definitely gave them something to think about and to enjoy. Her stories were heartfelt and so relatable, and her musical accompaniment was a joy to behold."

"This is an incredibly original, hilarious, sincere, & relevant one woman musical comedy that will have you laughing & crying for days. I cannot wait to see the show for a second time & witness where Lanessa's mind goes in the future!"

sweet - Jeremy L.


"HILARIOUS! I had a blast during this show! From start to finish I was laughing until my sides hurt. I feel like this word is over used but F*** it...Lanessa was FEARLESS up there. I loved how easily she was able to invite the audience to share in on the intimate details of her life and journey that we can all relate to. If you are between the ages of 18-35 and need someone to relate to, see this show! If you are 40-70 and can't relate to the former...GO SEE THIS SHOW and maybe you will start to!"

sweet - Chase


"This was FABULOUS! Lanessa took us on a trip with her unique sweet and sour style through all the weirdness of being a kid, artist, woman etc. Her original songs and commentary were hilarious, can't wait to see what she does next!"

sweet - Lelia Symington


"Lanessa Long is an undiscovered gem!!! She's refreshing and iconic. You laugh so hard that it's therapeutic— afterwards feels like you just got out of the best yoga session you never had. I've seen it twice and it just gets better! She's so relatable and real. I'm going to my third time tonight and can't wait! Better than most Netflix comedy specials! Seriously a must-see!!!!"

sweet - Vera


"I'm her dad. I was hoping to be “supportive”. I was blown away—and that's only the beginning. I was laughing so hard I held my sides, but there were others who were literally rolling on the floor. The twist that Lanessa humorously performed on careers, sex, women, men, airplane conversations—-life—-was beyond refreshing. She reinvented the comedy of my soul. We got tickets to her show in New York, and I never travel. I need this, WOW!!! Thank God, my life will never be the same."

sweet - Lee Long


"A poignant one woman show! Relatable and funny! Lanessa has an irresistible charm and sass to her with great musical and comedic talent."

sweet - Rose Wells


"It is difficult to condense Lanessa's one-woman show into a short review. Lanessa provides hilarious, insightful, and poignant commentary on the daily adventures of being a woman. She has you doubled over with laughter one second and rolling your eyes with a familiar understanding the next. Lanessa incorporates her incredible musical talent seamlessly with her comedic honesty about life, bringing humor to situations that can be frustrating at best. She is witty, sweet, and sarcastic and posses a rare and vibrant beauty, without the fear of not being beautiful. Lanessa connects with her audience in a way that makes you feel like you've known her for years. I highly recommend her show."

sweet - Leanna Serrano


"This was one of the most memorable performances I have ever seen. I laughed the entire time and found Lanessas's sense of humor and content to be so relatable! Nobody's Really Helped Me is witty, humorous, sad, captivating, inspiring and unique. It is everything you could ask for in a 45 minute one woman show!"

sweet - Stephanie D'Arcy


"Lanessa's musical and comedic antics are honest, from the heart, and hilariously relatable! 10/10 would recommend!!"

sweet - Lilia D


"I'm convinced Lanessa is going places, big places. She is new, she is fresh and she is so, so funny. This show is absolutely hilarious, heartwarming and relatable. Lanessa combines music and comedy flawlessly, moving seemlessly from song to standup. If you can get off your couch and come see this show you will not only not regret it, but you will want others to see it too."

sweet - Fiona Dornberger


"Highly recommend this show! Lanessa is hilarious and fabulous. I am a big fan of her original and oh-so-relatable comedy, music, and fun. Definitely a must see!"

sweet - Jennifer W.


"The unique spin of comedy and music being transformed into front of my eyes!! The genius that is Lanessa."

sweet - Brandon Garnett


"I'm an old guy. Far from 22 years old. Far from Lanessa Long's frame of experience. Yet she totally roped me in. I hung on every word, every sigh, every snarky snicker. Go, go, go see her wherever she performs. Five stars - no - six stars - no - infinite stars!"

sweet - Byron Tidwell


"Fun, funny, and oh so relatable! Lanessa keeps the audience engaged and laughing the entire time! She talks and sings about situations many of us have been in and her take on handling these situations are absolute gold. This one woman show is thought provoking in the most humorous and enjoyable way. It's the kind of show you can see over and over and over again because "Nobody's Really Helped Me" is that friggin Fabulously GOOD! Go see it!!! You Definitely Won't Regret It!"

sweet - Gina Kodel


"With a deeply personal, highly relatable, and equally hilarious rendition of moments in her life, Lanessa has managed to create lightness out of situations that can often be daunting. She brings a beautiful collaboration of humor and everyday struggle, musicianship, and deep honesty to her presence on the stage, along with the rare ability to leave her audience feeling fully understood and as much apart of her show as she is. I left feeling refreshed, open, happy, and grounded."

sweet - Kimberly Dunning


"I cried, I laughed and I LOVE it! The best one women show I have ever seen in my short life. Worth the ticket price!"
