NEW LIMITED REWARD!
The Wombsie!

The next 10 people to donate 25 or more can get a wombsie! These are one-of-a-kind homemade adult full body pajamas that make you feel like you're back in the uterine lining again!

Here's what Leibya Rogers has to say about them:

"You guys, I make these myself and I assure you that when you put them on you will travel back to the womb. Get back that lost feeling of security and warmth. One night inside my Wombsie will probably save you thousands of dollars on therapy and prescription meds. Hope you'll pledge something towards my vinyl album project! Love, Leibya"

Let's Make A Comedy Record Together!
I'm Mindy Raf. I'm a comedienne and writer out of Brooklyn, New York and this kickstarter project is on behalf of my comedic alter-ego, Leibya Rogers. Leibya Rogers is a poetic songstress, a vegan/anti-testosterone activist, and all around organic entertainer.

I'm attempting to raise $3,000 by Dec 23, 2009 to record and press 500 copies of a comedy album, LeibyaFair Live! on vinyl.

By donating, you will be an active part of the process and thus be entitled to many rewards. Look to the right! That’s where you find out how you’ll be rewarded when you decide to fund. EVERYONE who donates will get access to exclusive project updates via brand new Leibya Rogers poetry, songs, and videos. And of course the rewards get bigger and better as you scroll down.

The people who come out to shows, and who love and support live comedy [YOU!] are the reason I continue to write and perform. I hope you’ll choose to be a part of this project, and be a part of the audience at the live show recording if you’re in NYC. And I promise if you take part, you’ll be entertained throughout the entire process!

A quick note: Why Vinyl?
I wanted to pay tribute to that feeling of listening to comedy on vinyl. That’s how I first listened to comedy. The presentation of a vinyl record, holding a record in your hands, the experience of playing a record, I think has been lost. I remember being at comedy clubs, performing stand-up shortly after I moved to New York, and seeing all the covers of comedy records decorating the walls and thinking to myself, “that’s what I want to do someday! I want to make a comedy record!”
