In September 2015, Laura Sanders said goodbye to Columbus.

In September 2015, Laura Sanders said goodbye to Columbus. Now the standup comic, who currently makes her home in New Orleans, returns to the town where she got her start with a new honor in tow: Sanders' recent comedy LP, Oh God Please Like Me, debuted atop the iTunes comedy charts following its February release.

The success can be attributed to the myriad years Sanders has spent refining her craft onstage, as well as a sneaky social media strategy. "Making a list of emails of people that might want to buy my album," she wrote on Twitter in the days before the record's release, "anybody know a twelve year old that knows how to use their parent's cc?"

The hourlong album, recorded during a September farewell performance at the Short North's Garden Theater, finds Sanders holding court on everything from birth control to the dual crises of turning 30 and relocating to the South. "I was in Mississipi in May, and I realized that I am now old enough that polite strangers will wish me happy Mother's Day," she said before adding she is not, in fact, a mom. Get an early jump on these well-wishers when Sanders returns for a Tree Bar show on Saturday, March 12.
